Lotus Connections Administration - von der Befehlszeile zur grafischen Oberfläche

2,972

Published on

Die Administration von Lotus Connections besteht aus dem Editieren von XML Dateien und dem Absetzen von case-sensitiven (!) "wsadmin" Befehlen, dem Standard Command Line Interface des WebSphere Application Servers. Viele Lotus Connections Administratoren aber kommen aus der Lotus Domino Welt und sind den Domino Administrator gewöhnt, nicht jedoch daran, erst in einem Terminalfenster wsadmin zu starten, ein Pythonscript zu laden, Selektionsbefehle in temporäre Variable zu speichern und Hash Werte in Vector umzuwandeln - nur um dann am Ende einen User zu einer Community hinzufügen zu können. Dieser Ansatz für die Administration eines Systems wie Connections kann als unnötig komplex und wenig komfortabel empfunden werden.

In dieser Session wird exemplarisch die Connections Administration auf der Basis von wsadmin und im Vergleich dazu mit dem Lotus Connections Administration Toolkit (CAT) demonstriert. Es wird gezeigt, wie mit dem Lotus Connections Administration Toolkit die Komplexität der Connections Administration und der Aufwand für die Systempflege reduziert werden können.

CAT ist eine einfach zu installierende und leicht zu bedienende Applikation für die Konfiguration und Administration von Lotus Connections, mit kontextsensitiver Hilfe und ausführlichem Logging einschließlich Kommentarfunktion. Administrative Tasks, die in wsadmin aus einer Serie von aufeinanderfolgenden Einzelbefehlen bestehen, können in CAT per Click erledigt werden. Die Connections Administration wird wesentlich vereinfacht und auch für Administratoren ohne WebSphere Background zugänglich.

  20. 20. Lotus Connections Configuration with CAT:What we have seen● Configure Lotus Connections with your browser from everywhere● No need for a wsadmin session● No check-out / check-in of XML files required● No editing of XML files● Connections Administration Toolkit (CAT) displayes the current communication settings● Change communication settings for one, multiple or all Lotus Connections features with one click © 2011 IBM Corporation 20
  21. 21. And how about administration ?Can I as administrator add new members to Activities ? © 2011 IBM Corporation 21
  22. 22. Steps for Activities Member Management● Select user● Select activity● Perform task © 2011 IBM Corporation 22
  23. 23. Example 2:Add an Additional Member to an Activity (1)1) Change to Deployment Manager bin Directory: <dmgr-root>bin2) Start wsadmin session: wsadmin -lang jython -user <admin> -password <password> -port 88793) Load Activities configuration script: execfile("activitiesAdmin.py")4) We have to define the new member and store it in a temporary variable: newMember=ActivitiesMemberService.fetchMemberByName (“Olga Belousova”)5) We have to select the activity and store it in a temporary variable: act=ActivityService.fetchActivityById ("FFFGc66a55370a2c423eafa5bd0a4b443a70") © 2011 IBM Corporation 23
  24. 24. Example 2:Add an Additional Member to an Activity (2)6) Unfortunately our variables are of type hash, but the method for adding members to an activity expects vector, so we have to convert them: from java.util import Vector newMemberVec = Vector() newMemberVec.add(newMember) actVec = Vector() actVec.add(act)7) Finally we can add the new member to the activity: AccessControlService.setMembersAccess (actVec,newMemberVec) © 2011 IBM Corporation 24
  25. 25. Difference Between Hash and Vector ?● A vector is a list (aka “array”) of hash values © 2011 IBM Corporation 25

  28. 28. Activities Member Management with CAT:What we have seen● Filter activities by any combination of criteria: ─ Activity type (all, completed, deleted) ─ Activity name ─ User (creator, member, owner) ─ Activity ID (UUID) ─ Date● Display properties for selected activity● Perform tasks on one or multiple activities: ─ Delete ─ Restore ─ Purge ─ Add / remove authors, reader and owner © 2011 IBM Corporation 28
  29. 29. © 2011 IBM Corporation 29
  30. 30. Connections User Management ArchitectureWe have several repositories containing user data:● Corporate directory (LDAP) ─ Source for Profiles database ─ Contains a field which acts as primary key between directory and Connections – Must be unique and may never change ! ─ Contains the allowed login items used for Connections authentication – email, uid, loginId – These must be unique !● Profiles database ─ Gets initially populated from and periodically synced with corporate directory ─ The “External ID” (ExtId) is the key● Application databases ─ One database per feature ─ These also contain the ExtId © 2011 IBM Corporation 30
  31. 31. Connections User Management – The ChallengeProblems can happen if:● A user has different extids in these repositories: ─ A user leaves the company, comes back and gets a new identity in corporate directory – New identity = new extid !! – Old data are associated with old extid – User cannot access his/her old data ─ Cut & paste a person record in Lotus Domino® Directory – Copied Notes® document = new dominoUnId = new extid !!● A login item is not unique ─ A group of users is sharing a mail address ─ Same uid for more than one user ─ We know this things happen ... © 2011 IBM Corporation 31
  32. 32. New with Connections 3: Inactive Users● Users can become inactive ─ Automatically - if they are removed from corporate directory ─ Manually - by usage of wsadmin commands● Inactive means: ─ A users mail address and login details are removed from the Connections databases and can now be used by other people – no more conflicts are happening as in 2.5 ─ The inactive users name is displayed in italics and grey in membership lists ─ Their name is not returned in searches of the company directory ─ Their name no longer displayes when using type-ahead ─ The inactive user never receives email notifications from Lotus Connections● This makes it a lot easier as with Connections 2.5, but inconsistencies still can happen ─ Affected users cannot log on © 2011 IBM Corporation 32
  33. 33. Troubleshooting User Management Problems● Synchronize the Profiles database with the corporate directory● If this doesnt help, use the ProfilesService commands● If this doesnt help, use the MemberService commands for the feature(s) affected © 2011 IBM Corporation 33
  34. 34. Example 3: ProfilesService Commands1) Change to Deployment Manager bin Directory, start wsadmin session and load the Profiles configuration script: execfile("profilesAdmin.py")2) Inactivate a user: ProfilesService.inactivateUser(“jdoe@example.com”)3) Activate a user and (optionally) specify user properties: ProfilesService.activateUserByUserId (“B0EE9F65-4EEA-9997-C125-77F9003E9E2F”, email=“jdoe@example.com”, displayName=“Joe Doe”)4) Update user properties in Profiles database: ProfilesService.updateUser(“jdoe@example.com”, email=“jdoemarried@example.com”) © 2011 IBM Corporation 34
  35. 35. Example 3: ProfilesService Commands5) Swap user properties from one extid to another: ProfilesService.swapUserAccessByUserId (“JDoeRetired2010”, “JdoeRehired2011”)6) Publish user data from Profiles to applications: ProfilesService.publishUserData(“jdoe@example.com”) © 2011 IBM Corporation 35
  36. 36. Example 3: MemberService Commands1) Change to Deployment Manager bin Directory, start wsadmin session and load the application specific configuration script2) Inactivate a user: <App>MemberService.inactivateMemberByEmail (“jdoe@example.com”)3) Synchronize a users extid in the application database with corporate directory: <App>MemberService.syncMemberExtIdByEmail (“jdoe@example.com”, {"allowInactivate" : "true"})4) Synchronize a users extid in the application database with corporate directory and allow swap of user properties from one extid to another: <App>MemberService.syncMemberByExtId (“B0EE9F65-4EEA-9997-C125-77F9003E9E2F”, {"newExtId" : "28D48C08-6BC8-777A-C125-7589003D9025", “allowExtIdSwap” : “true”})5) Repeat steps 1) – 4) for each application as needed © 2011 IBM Corporation 36

  38. 38. User Management with CAT: What we have seen● Filter an user by extid, mail or loginId● Display properties for selected user from Profiles● Display extid(s) of the selected user from all applications● Activate or inactivate the selected user in all applications with one click● Sync the selected user in selected applications with Profiles● Sync the selected user in selected applications with corporate directory © 2011 IBM Corporation 38

  40. 40. Overview of CAT:Feature Configuration & Administration (1)● Activities ● Communities ─ Configuration properties ─ Configuration properties ─ Display information on activities ─ Display information on Communities ─ Membership management ─ Change community properties ─ Trash management ─ Create communities ─ Export & import ─ Membership management● Bookmarks ─ Managed applications ─ Configuration properties ─ Remove bookmarks & tags ─ View & link thresholds ─ Widget administration ─ Replace URLs ● Files ─ Delete bookmarks ─ Configuration properties – Restrict file types● Forums – Displaying files inline ─ Configuration properties – Many more ... ─ Display information on forums ─ Delete forums & topics ─ Library management ─ Trash management ─ Policy management ─ Delete files of inactive users © 2011 IBM Corporation 40
  41. 41. Overview of CAT:Feature Configuration & Administration (2)● Profiles ● Wikis ─ Configuration properties ─ Configuration properties – Board – Restrict file types – Following – Maximum sizes – Networking – Page versioning – Photos – Displaying files inline – Pronunciation – Many more ... – Reporting structure ─ Library management – Status updates ─ Policy management – Tagging ─ Delete wikis – Search ● Search ─ Widgets management ─ Configuration properties ─ Cache management – Dictionaries● News – Index settings ─ Configuration properties ─ Index management © 2011 IBM Corporation 41
