Integrate the Profiles business card 

Include the Profiles business card in your web application so that users can access a snapshot of your profile information and contact details.


Before you begin

The CSS files loaded with the Profiles business card do not include font style information. To ensure that the business card appears fully integrated with your web application from a visual perspective, define your own font styles globally so that the styles used in your application are also applied to the business card.

Note: The use of JavaScript™ Object Notation with padding (JSONP) technology in the business card will be deprecated in future releases. Although JSONP will continue to be supported, if you are integrating the business card in to your web application and you want to prevent JSONP data from being transmitted by IBM Connections, use an Ajax proxy.


About this task

You can integrate the Profiles business card with your web application based on one of the following:

Many LDAP directories contain users who do not have email addresses and using the x-lconn-userid parameter is a way of preemptively avoiding a dependency on the email address. In addition, administrators can edit configuration property settings to prevent email addresses from being displayed in IBM Connections. Hiding email is a way to prevent the scraping of email addresses and protect the privacy of users. You can architect your web application so that it does not rely on email addresses for retrieving user data, such as the contextual business card.

Two types of business card are available to add to your web application:
