Customize action links on the business card 

Customize the action links that display on the bottom of the Profiles business card by editing settings in the Profiles configuration file.


Before you begin

To edit configuration files, use the wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for information about how to start the wsadmin command-line tool.


About this task

The bottom section of the Profiles business card displays links that allow you to perform different actions directly from the card. For example, you can configure the card to display a link that allows users to send mail to the profile owner or a link that allows users to add the profile owner to their network.

To customize the action links that display on the business card:


Procedure

  1. From the dmgr host:

      cd $DMGR_PROFILE/bin
      ./wsadmin.sh -jython
      execfile("profilesAdmin.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 Profiles configuration files:

      ProfilesConfigService.checkOutConfig("<working_directory>", "<cell_name>")where:

      • <working_directory> is the temporary working directory to which the configuration XML and XSD files are copied and are stored while you make changes to them. Use forward slashes (/) to separate directories in the file path, even if you are using the Microsoft Windows operating system.

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

      • <cell_name> is the name of the WAS cell hosting the Profiles application. This argument is required. It is also case-sensitive, so type it with care. 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:

      • AIX or Linux:

          ProfilesConfigService.checkOutConfig("/opt/prof/temp","foo01Cell01")

      • Microsoft Windows:

          ProfilesConfigService.checkOutConfig("c:/prof/temp","foo01Cell01")

  • Open the profiles-config.xml file using a text editor.

  • Locate the <businessCardLayout> element, and specify the actions that you want to include under the <actions> element.

  • Save your changes.

  • 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 Profiles for information about how to save and apply your changes.
