Integrate Profiles with Lotus Quickr 

You can configure the LotusConnections-config.xml file to include a link to IBM Lotus Quickr on the Profiles business card. Users can then click the Quickr link in another person's business card to open that person's personal file library in Lotus Quickr.

Before you begin

About this task

The Profiles business card serves as a interface that other applications can leverage to integrate with IBM Connections. You can enable integration with Lotus Quickr for Lotus Domino in the inline and pop-up business cards by enabling a service reference to the LotusConnections-config.xml file. Users can then click the Quickr link in another person's business card to access that person's public files and the files that they've shared with the user in Lotus Quickr.


To enable a Lotus Quickr link on the business card...

  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. This information is not used by the wsadmin client when you are making configuration changes.

    • Check out the IBM Connections 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.

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

        • <cell_name> is the name of the WAS cell hosting the IBM Connections application. This argument is case-sensitive, so type it with care. To obtain the cell name:print AdminControl.getCell()

        For example:

        • AIX or Linux:LCConfigService.checkOutConfig("/opt/temp","foo01Cell01")

        • Microsoft Windows:LCConfigService.checkOutConfig("c:/temp","foo01Cell01")

  • Open the LotusConnections-config.xml file with a text editor, and enable the quickr service reference in the file, replacing <> with the name of your server, and setting "enabled" and "ssl_enabled" to true as follows:

  • 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 common configuration property changes for information about how to save and apply your changes.
