You must configure single sign-on between the IBM Connections and Lotus Quickr servers before you can add Lotus Quickr Library widgets to IBM Connections communities.


About this task

Both servers must be configured to use the same LDAP.


Procedure

  1. On the IBM Connections server, open the WAS Integrated Solutions Console.

  2. Navigate to Security -> Global Security -> Web and SIP Security -> Single sign-on.

  3. Make sure single sign-on is enabled.

  4. Set the domain name to the common domain name suffix of the two servers. For example, if the two servers are connections.my.enterprise.com and quickr.my.enterprise.com, the domain name for SSO could be .my.enterprise.com.

  5. Navigate to Security -> Global Security -> LTPA.

  6. Under cross-cell single sign-on type a password that you will use later, and the location and name of a key file name to export to, for example C:\my.keys

  12. In the console, navigate to Security -> Secure administration, applications, and infrastructure -> Authentication mechanisms and expiration.

  13. Under cross-cell single sign-on enter the password you used in Step 6 to export the keys.
