Common configuration properties for HCL Connections that you can change only by manually editing the LotusConnections-config.xml file.

Manually changing properties

The following properties are stored in the LotusConnections-config.xml file but you cannot edit them by using the wsadmin updateConfig command. Instead, you must check out the configuration file and edit the property in a text editor.

Use the wsadmin LCConfigService.checkOutConfig command to check out the file. When you finish editing the file, check it in by using the LCConfigService.checkInConfig command. the file is validated and you are notified if an error is found.


For some applications, you can customize the configuration file that is used by the active content filter. To do so, you must manually edit the acf_config_file attribute of the <sloc:serviceReference> element that represents the application. For more information, see the Configuring the active content filter for Blogs, Wikis, and Forums or Configuring the active content filter for Activities, Communities, and Bookmarks topics.
