How to change global configuration properties for the Profiles module

CAT Features

Problem description

The Profiles application can be customized to meet Company standards. There are many configuration properties that can be set to make this happen, for example configuring the type-ahead, the search order, or the Reports-To widget.

Solution with Websphere Commandline Interface

Search the HCL Connections documentation for the steps to solve your problem.

  1. Start the wsadmin commandline interface as administrator. ATTENTION: All commands for the commandline interface are case sensitive!
  2. Activate the relevant Jython script.
  3. Check out the relevant HCL Connections configuration XML file.
  4. Open the HCL Connections configuration XML file and edit the parameters. ATTENTION: Make sure you don’t accidentally violate the XML schema, e.g. by forgetting to close a tag or a quotation mark.
  5. Check in the configuration file again.

Solution with Connections Administration Toolkit (CAT)

Navigate to Administration – Profiles, subsection Configure. There, you can see a list of all properties that can be set, sorted by category, including a brief description of what exactly the property does.

After editing the parameters, a confirmation popup summarizes the changes and allows you to enter a comment. All changes, comments, and who made them, are logged by the CAT application.
