Configure display settings 

Use configuration settings to control the display of data in the Communities application.


Before you begin

To edit configuration files, use the IBM WAS wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for details.


Procedure

To configure display settings for Communities...

  1. From the dmgr host:

      cd $DMGR_PROFILE/bin
      ./wsadmin.sh -jython
      execfile("communitiesAdmin.py")

      If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, pick the node where the file is stored.

  2. Check out the Communities configuration files using the following command:

      CommunitiesConfigService.checkOutConfig("<working_directory>", "<cell_name>")

      where:

      • <working_directory> is the temporary working directory to which the configuration XML and XSD files are copied. The files are kept in this working directory while you make changes to them.

          Note: AIX and Linux only: The directory must grant write permissions or the command will not run successfully.

      • <cell_name> is the name of the WAS cell hosting the IBM Connections application. This argument is required. If you do not know the cell name, you can determine it by typing the following command in the wsadmin command processor:

          print AdminControl.getCell()

      For example:

      CommunitiesConfigService.checkOutConfig("/opt/my_temp_dir", "CommServerNode01Cell")

  • To view the current configuration settings use this command:

  • To change display settings for Communities, use the following command:

  • After making changes, check the configuration files back in, and do so during the same wsadmin session in which you checked them out for the changes to take effect. See Apply property changes in Communities for information about how to save and apply your changes.
