Managing the Communities catalog

The Communities catalog displays content from IBM® Connections communities in the Communities application.

Sources are connections to servers or clusters that contain IBM Connections communities. The servers publish metadata about their communities and places, and sources collect that metadata in an index. Community metadata then displays in lists of communities in the I'm an Owner, I’m a Member, I’m Following, I’m Invited, Trash, and My Organization Communities views. By default, metadata is collected automatically on a schedule, but you can control collections for each source.

Note: Only places metadata is collected, not the actual community or place content.
