About this task

When networking is enabled, users can invite other users to join their network. In this release of IBM Connections, the networking feature is enabled by default and you cannot disable it. However, you can configure access control settings for the feature according to profile type.


The following steps provide information about the properties for the networking feature, and the access levels and scopes that you can configure.

  1. From the dmgr host:

      cd $DMGR_PROFILE/bin
      ./ -jython

      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.

  • Check out profiles-policy.xml:

  • Open profiles-policy.xml using a text editor, from the temporary directory to which you checked it out.

  • Edit the following properties for the networking feature as needed.

  • Save your changes and check profiles-policy.xml back in using the following command:

  • To exit the wsadmin client, type exit at the prompt.

  • Stop and restart the Profiles server.
