If you have tried to map a long office name and adress into the officeName of the PEOPLEDB, you probably stumbled upon the chapter "Supplemental user data for Profiles" in the IBM Connections documentation. What is described as "supplemental tables within the Profiles database" are in fact rather essential tables that can help you with adoption by providing more data within a users profile. Also, their use cuts down on the number of customizations needed as well as providing more information to the Cognos reports.
I will talk you through the countries, departments, organization, enmployee and worklocation tables, how the can be filled with data either through csv files as well as custom assembly lines and how to reference them efficiently. Also we will take a look on what is necessary to expose the additional data in search, business cards and the profile pages.
After this session you should be able to easily and quickly add more data to your IBM Connections profiles.
Buzzword Bingo for this session: fill-scripts, profiles, tdi, csv workplace, address, department, reports, cognos, search.
