How to update the HCL Connections version stam

    CAT Features

    Problem Description

    After changes to the HCL Connections configurations have been made, they are not immediately visible in the browsers because of caching problems. To force all browsers to fetch a new version from the Connections server, the version stamp needs to be set to a later date than the current version stamp.

    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 – General, subsection Global Settings. In the tab ‘General’ on the top-most setting, there is a display of your current version stamp. The button “Update Version Stamp” automatically generates a new version stamp from the current system time so that you don’t have to worry about proper formatting of the new version stamp.

    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.
