Adding custom widgets to Profiles
Extend the functionality of the Profiles application by adding custom widgets.
You need to register the widgets developed by iWidget developers to make them available for use in HCL Connections. You do this by configuring the widget attributes defined by the iWidget developer in the widgets-config.xml file.
Profiles supports the use of mandated widgets only. Mandated widgets can be placed in any of the columns on the My Profile, Directory, and My Network pages. This type of widget exists in every profile and cannot be removed or hidden. Mandated widgets can also exist outside a profile, for example, they can show up in a search results page.
- Enabling custom widgets for Profiles
To make custom widgets available for use in Profiles, you need to configure the widgets in the widget definition file, widgets-config.xml.
- Profiles widget configuration variables
The following table lists the configuration variables that can be used for the url, navBarLink, helpLink, and item or @value attributes when configuring a third-party widget for integration with Profiles. The @value attribute refers to the value attribute in the item of the itemSet configuration elements in the widgets-config.xml file.
