Moderation overview 

Find out what level of content moderation is available for the applications in version 3 and version 3.0.1.

Moderation was added to IBM Connections with version 3 and expanded in version 3.0.1. If the moderation application is installed and enabled, you can define a person or set of people who will review and approve the content that users add to certain applications before it is published or review and act on content that has been flagged as problematic.

Moderation can be configured to make moderation available for global moderators, community owners or blog owners, as follows:

Global moderators

Community moderators

Blogs moderators

In addition to the user interfaces available for moderation, there is a public moderation API that can be leveraged by third-party developers to extend the capabilities of content moderation.
