HCL Connections Docs 2.0.2 – minor issues

Posted by

The new Connections Docs 2.0.2 is out. Most important part for me, they switched to Python3 for the installation and the option to install with the Installation Manager has been dropped. (not a big loss imho)

So far the update process from earlier versions seem to work. Thanks Vincent GICQUEL for testing this.

If you install a new instance there are some minor issues after the installation.

  • A fresh “viewer-config.json” is not valid. If you run
    jq '.' viewer-config.json

    you’ll get an error on line 430. The block with the help link array has a ‘,’ too much at the last entry. If you don’t correct it, the Viewer will not work and just provide some cryptic error messages. Thanks to Herwig Schauer and Martin Leyrer for the hint

  • On Linux servers you still see the C:/IBM/IBMConversion/data paths appear like in the conversion-config.json in the key ‘repositoryPath’ and the generated crontab entries. You’ll find some strange paths in your WebSphere profiles directories ‘C:’… they can be removed.
