Customize business card informationCustomize the main section of the Profiles business card by editing settings in the profiles-config.xml file.
Before you beginTo 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 taskThe main section of the business card displays the contact information and location information associated with a profile. You can customize this area by configuring the type of information that displays and the order in which it displays. You can also add custom extension attributes and blocks of HTML to this section of the business card.
To customize the main section of the business card:
- 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 the Profiles configuration files:
- <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()
- 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 information that you want to display by adding the following attributes under the <attributes> element:
Table 1. Business card attributes
Subelement Description attribute Specifies the predefined attribute that you want to display. extensionAttribute Specifies the custom extension attribute that you want to display. For information on adding custom extension attributes to Profiles, see Add custom extension attributes for Profiles. html Specifies a block of HTML to display in the business card.
Each subelement can optionally include the following attributes:
- labelKey. Specifies the label to display with the attribute.
Note: There is no default label for attributes. If showLabel is set to true, explicitly define a label to use using the labelKey attribute.
- bundleIdRef. Enables you to reference an external bundle contained in a ZIP file.
<businessCardLayout profileType="default"> <attributes> ... <html prependHtml="<div class='adr'>"/> <attribute showLabel="false" hideIfEmpty="true" ...>workLocation.city</attribute> <extensionAttribute extensionIdRef="region" showLabel="true" labelKey="label.region" bundleIdRef="mylabels" hideIfEmpty="true" prependHtml="..."/> ... </attributes> ... </businessCardLayout>
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.
