Configure the size of the community description summary 

Use configuration settings to set the maximum size of a community description summary.


Before you begin

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


About this task

The community description summary displays on the Public Communities and My Communities pages.


Procedure

To set the size of the community description summary...

  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 change the size of the community description summary, 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.
