When you call IBM Support for help, you might wonder “Just who is this that is helping me resolve this issue?" Over time, you may begin to prefer a particular Software Engineer who has saved the day for you several times.
Does the name Joshua Edwards ring a bell?
As a very technically well-rounded engineer, Joshua continues to provide solutions to difficult issues facing IBM clients.
You might have heard Joshua as a presenter or panelist on several Open Mic or Ask the Expert webcasts. Or you might have viewed one of his videos on our YouTube channel.
On August 3rd, we will be hosting an Open Mic on the topic “Advantages of IBM Cloud Meetings with Feature Walkthrough.” In this webcast, we plan to discuss popular topics like using video and VoIP in meetings, as well as how to use meeting features to make your meetings more productive.
Be sure to pencil in this meeting on your calendar and remember to join Joshua and myself for a very interesting session.

If you have an on-prem Connections environment, it's easy enough to build a formatted list of community members using wsadmin commands. I wrote about a way to pull a repo
1. Access your community's member feed. For example, http
$ cat members.xml |
The members.csv file should contain a formatted list of email addresses and names that can be imported anywhere you'd use a CSV file.

In the Connections Homepage Administration UI, users are required to disable each widget or app one at a time. However, by using a combination of wsadmin commands, users are able to disable all enabled widgets or apps from the Homepage.
Once the Homepage administrator role user logs into the Homepage application, and selects the Administration view, they will see that all enabled widgets or apps have now been disabled.

Are you a Help Desk Superhero, always at the ready to save the day for your IBM Connections Chat Cloud users?
Earlier this year, Staff Software Engineer Asia Bashadi, delivered a highly lauded ‘Ask the Expert’ session: “Help Desk Best Practices for IBM Connections Chat Cloud.”
In an effort to get Asia’s wildly popular session parceled out into easily consumable tidbits of goodness, I have divided the content into four short videos.
These videos are each under five minutes and packed with valuable tips and resources.
>> IBM Connections Chat Cloud: Should this feature be working?
>> Help Desk Resources for IBM Connections Chat Cloud
>> IBM Connections Chat Cloud: Testing and resolving common problems
>> IBM Connections Chat Cloud: What to do when opening a PMR with Support
Check ‘em out below!

Here's another administration script to cover a common request to add a particular user (e.g. an administrator) to the ACL for every community. We can do this using two wsadmin commands:
In environments with many communities, you'd want to use Comm
from java.util import ArrayList
# Initialize Communities Administration
# Define the new owner to add
# Get all communities
# Loop through the communities and add the new owner to each
In the real world, I'd pass in the email address of the user to add as an argument to the command, but you get the idea. The addM
Also note that because fetchAllComms() returns communities and subcommunities in indeterminate order, you'll need to run the command twice to cover the scenario where we try to update the ACL for a subcommunity before the user has been added to the parent community. The first pass will update all parent communities and any subcommunities processed after their parents, and the second pass will catch any of the subcommunities that were processed before their parents.
