IBM Connections OAuth Setup

Register OAuth

In order for Buzzy to authenticate with your Connections environment, you must define a new OAuth widget.

  1. SSH to the IBM Connections Deployment Manager (substitute the alias)

      ssh root@[DEPLOY_MANAGER_ALIAS]
  2. Start wsadmin (substiture your credentials)

      cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/bin/
      ./ -lang jython -username connectionsadmin -password passw0rd
  3. Register the new application definition

      OAuthApplicationRegistrationService.addApplication('buzzy', 'buzzy', 'https://<BUZZY_URL>/pre-oauth-connections/buzzy')

    Where [BUZZY_URL] is the URL of the Buzzy installation specified previously

  4. To view the uniquely created client clientSecret


    These commands will print the definition. Please take note of the clientSecret. We will use this later on.
