Modifying Hidden Jive Source Parameters

The Add Source and Source: ... General pages of the Administration Tool present the parameters with which you can configure the connector for most Jive setups. More advanced and more rarely used parameters are hidden. You can choose to make one or more of these parameters appear in the Add Source and Source: ... General pages of the Administration Tool so that you can change their default value. Consider changing values of hidden parameters when you encounter issues.

The following list describes the advanced hidden parameters available with Jive sources. The parameter type (Integer, String, Boolean) appears between parentheses following the parameter name.

ServiceTimeout (Integer)

The time the connector waits for a web service request to complete. Any value in seconds. The default is 120 seconds.

ServiceBatchSize (Integer)

The number of items to retrieve in a single call to the Jive web services. The default value is 25.

UserCacheLifeSpan (Integer)

The connector keeps a local cache of all the Jive users. This way the connector does not have to retrieve all users from Jive on every full or live indexing run. This parameter controls the amount of time (in minutes) this user cache remains valid. When this delay expires, all users are fetched again, instead of being taken out of the cache. The default value is 1440 minutes (24 hours).

ItemTypesToIgnore (String)

List of Jive item types to ignore while indexing. Possible values are: Announcement, Blog, Discussion, Document, Poll, ProjectCheckPoint, ProjectTask, PrivateMessage

DownloadUserProfilePictures (Boolean)

When set to true, the connector downloads the images associated with each user profile and adds them as thumbnails to the CES documents.

PhraseSubstitutionsAnnouncementPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsBlogPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsCheckpointPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsCommentPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsCommunityPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsDirectMessagePattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsDiscussionPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsDocumentPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsMessagePattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsPollPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsPrivateMessagePattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsProjectPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsSocialGroupPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsSystemBlogPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsTaskPattern (String)
PhraseSubstitutionsUserPattern (String)

When your Jive community includes a non-English user interface with phrase substitutions for localized names and the Use phrase substitutions source option is selected, the connector cannot directly index these substitutions. Use these parameters to provide a pattern to search for the specific item type. The default value for the above parameters are respectively: Announcement, Blog, Checkpoint, Comment, Space, Direct Message, Discussion, Document, Message, Poll, Private Message, Project, Social Group, System Blog, Task, and User.

The phrase substitution pattern parameters are available only with CES 6.5.4856+.

Example: When you are using a French interface, Space is called Espace. If you add Communauté as a phrase substitution for Espace", add the PhraseSubstitutionsCommunityPattern source parameter with the value Espace to allow the connector to index the phrase substitution for the item type.

Use the following procedure only when you want to modify one or more of the above hidden source parameters.

To modify hidden Jive source parameters

  1. Refer to Showing Advanced Hidden Source Parameters to add one or more Jive hidden source parameters.
  2. For a new Jive source, access the Add Source page of the Administration Tool to modify the value of the newly added advanced parameter:
    1. Select Index > Sources and Collections.
    2. Under Collections, select the collection in which you wish to add the source.
    3. Under Sources, click Add.
    4. In the Add Source page, edit the newly added advanced parameter value.
  3. For an existing Jive source, access the Source: ... General page of the Administration Tool to modify the value of the newly added advanced parameter:
    1. Select Index > Sources and Collections.
    2. Under Collections, select the collection containing the source you wish to modify.
    3. Under Sources, click the existing Jive source in which you wish to modify the newly added advanced parameter.
    4. In the Source: ... General page, edit the newly added advanced parameter value.
  4. Rebuild your Jive source to apply the changes to the parameters (see How to Apply an Action to a Collection or a Source).
