Configure the profile photo feature by profile typeEdit settings in profiles-policy.xml to configure the profile photo feature according to profile type.
Before you beginTo edit configuration files, use the IBM WAS wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for information about how to start the wsadmin command-line tool.
About this taskWhen the profile photo feature is enabled, users can enhance their profile page by adding a picture of themselves. As administrator, you can enable or disable this feature for specific profile types, depending on your organization's needs. You can also configure access control settings for the profile photo feature according to profile type.
ProcedureThe following steps provide information about the properties that you can set for the profile photo feature, and the access levels and scopes that you can configure.
- From the dmgr host:
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:
- <working_directory> is the temporary working directory to which the configuration XML and XSD files will be copied. The files are kept in this working directory while you make changes to them.
- <cell_name> is the name of the IBM WAS cell hosting the Profiles application. This argument is required.
Open profiles-policy.xml using a text editor, from the temporary directory to which you checked it out. Edit the following properties for the profile photo feature as needed.
Enables or disables the profile photo feature.
This property takes a string value. Possible values include:
- true. Enables the photo feature for users with the specified profile type. The user interface displays the user's photo and provides options for editing the photo.
- false. Disables the photo feature for users with the specified profile type. The user interface does not display the user's photo or options for editing the photo. A generic photo image is displayed in place of the user's photo.
Controls user access to update the profile photo.
Access levels for this property can be defined using one of the following scopes:
<feature name="profile.photo"> <profileType type="default" enabled="true"> <acl name="profile.photo.update" scope="self" /> </profileType> <profileType type="contractor" enabled="true"> <acl name="profile.photo.update" scope="none" /> </profileType> <profileType type="visitor" enabled="false"> <acl name="profile.photo.update" scope="none" /> </profileType> </feature>
The code sample above enables the profile photo feature for the default profile type, but restricts access to update profile photos to profile owners and administrators. For users with the contractor profile type, the profile photo is enabled, but no access is provided to update the profile photo for users of this profile type. The profile photo feature is disabled for users with the visitor profile type, and no one can update the profile photo for users of this profile type.
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.
