Desktop plug-in for Windows fails on large uploads   

By Femke Goedhart | 11/13/20 6:55 AM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by Oliver Busse

At one of my customers we ran into the problem that users were not able to upload files larger than 50MB within the HCL Connections Desktop plug-in for Windows but were able to upload files of up to 1GB (server setting) in the browser. The error users got in the desktop connector was “Server returned bad request (400)” when uploading these larger files. I will post the solution they found (and that I can’t seem to find online) here for others to use in case they run into similar problems.

Update on the Touchpoint workaround  

By Christoph Stoettner | 11/4/20 2:14 AM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Some weeks ago I wrote about an workaround to prevent TDI from deleting the touchpoint status in HCL Connections. During some research on TDI I found Mapping fields manually in the HCL Connections documentations. This document describes how to add additional fields to the TDI synchronisation. On point 11 I found something new for me. You can add additional fields and then add the content with an Javascript function for example.

Three weeks ago I was able to speak at the virtual DNUG event with Joerg Rafflenbeul on the topic of a program that is very close to my heart. The adoption & guides program at Heitkamp & Thumann.

Today (2PM CDT/8PM CET) we will doing this session again, this time in English at the online Collabsphere conference. If you are interested then please register for the event. It is free of charge!
