How does your application authenticate with Smart Cloud or IBM Connections? OAuth is the mechanism used by Smart Cloud and IBM Connections to authenticate external applications with the IBM Connections and Smart Cloud environments. OAuth provides a means for your application to authenticate with a service provider without knowing the users credentials. You will need to be a Smart Cloud organization administrator to generate the application key. Lets take a look at how you can create an OAuth id and secret that your application can use. 17
Smart Cloud OAuth UI. 18 As a Smart Cloud organization administrator, you can create new OAuth credentials. To do this, log in and Navigate to the “Internal Apps” left navigator via the “Admin->Manage Organization” masthead drop down menu.
Smart Cloud OAuth UI. 19 You will need to register your OAuth application. Below an OAuth 2.0 registration has created. OAuth 2.0 requires a call-back URL to your application. The format is: https://<your host>:<port>/<your context root>/service/oauth20_cb
Smart Cloud OAuth UI. 20 You can obtain your OAuth credentials by selecting the drop down next to your newly registered application. Select: “Show Credentials”.
IBM Connections OAuth. 21 OAuth credentials for IBM Connections can be create by the Connection administrator using wsadmin tool. /bin/wsadmin.sh execfile('oauthAdmin.py') OAuthApplicationRegistrationService.addApplication("<appId>", "<appDescritpion>", "<https://yourAppURL:port/service/oauth20_cb>")
How you add your OAuth crendetials to your application. “managed-beans.xml” managed-beans.xml should be added to your application and will contain your OAuth credentials and configuration information. Lets create one: <managed-bean> <managed-bean-name>SCLabs</managed-bean-name> <managed-property> <property-name>consumerSecret</property-name> <value>8e9e00ad767976b3dfe979b9de6d702ef7c60c5 ...</value> </managed-property) <property-name>consumerKey</property-name> <value>app_20088093_1379354351324</value> </managed-property> ... </managed-bean> 22
How you add your OAuth crendetials to your application. “managed-beans.xml” Other essential information in managed-beans.xml is the authorization URL's for the service provider. <managed-bean> . . . <managed-property> <property-name>authorizationURL</property-name> <value>https://apps.na.collabservtest.lotus.com/manage/oauth2/authorize</value> </managed-property> <managed-property> <property-name>accessTokenURL</property-name> <value>https://apps.na.collabservtest.lotus.com/manage/oauth2/token</value> </managed-property> 23
What are the SBT Helper Applications? The SBT helper applications are war files that enable the Social Business Toolkit. These applications are installed once and are used by all of your Social Business Applications. They are available in the /sbtsdk/redist/war folder – sbt.boostrap211.war – sbt.dojo180.war – sbt.jquer182.war – sbt.war 24
How are the Social Business Toolkit helper applications referenced? The SBT help applications are referenced in two places – Your Web.xml file <servlet> ... <servlet-class>com.ibm.sbt.jslibrary.servlet.LibraryServlet</servlet-class> <init-param> <description>This is an init parameter sbt context root</description> <param-name>toolkitUrl</param-name> <param-value>%local_server%/ghsbt</param-value> </init-param> </servlet> 25
