Gosling’s Ginger Beer

Gosling’s is a name you might be familiar with it if you have had the Goslings Bermuda Black Rum – They have been around since 1806. They are one of the few rum distillers to also be a vendor for Ginger Beer (or at least one of the few I’ve found).

The Ginger Beer is my backup plan when the stores have no other Ginger Beer.  It’s good, but a little harsh when not on ice.  It tastes a bit of the dried ginger root – concentrate being 10x more punch than the raw Ginger Root.

I give the ginger beer a 7 out of 10.  Good, but not great. It’s also one of the few Ginger Beers that I can find in Plastic Bottles and Aluminum Cans.

Gosling’s is also famous for the Dark and Stormy. http://www.goslingsrum.com/microsites/stormygingerbeer.php

A Few OAuth Notes

While I was working with a fellow developer building an integration for IBM Connections on premises, I found out about a couple of key items with the OAuth Provider.

1 – You can see a JSON Array of the Current User Tokens, when logged in as that user.

Navigate to https://sbdev.server:444/oauth2/authzMgmt/connectionsProvider

Login to IBM Connections

Look at the JSON Data to see the Granted Applications for the Logged in User


2 – You can see all the applications which are granted user oauth tokens – automatically authorized and manually authorized.

Navigate to https://sbtdev.server/common/oauth/apps?autoAuth=true

3 – OAuth Whitelists

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21627911 , you can update your OAuth whitelists based on the client-id you set.

“As a measure to reduce hassle to users for trusted OAuth clients, IBM Connections implements an extension to the OAuth protocol that allows whitelisted clients to skip the authorization request when utilized from within the Connections user interface. In order to list an application as a trusted auto-authorization enabled client, an administrator must perform steps that are covered by the product documentation topic http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lcwiki.nsf/dx/Registering_an_OAuth_client_with_a_provider_ic40 .

Edit the connectionsProvider.xml in the Deployment Manager profile.


Synchronize your nodes, and restart the server.

Volia… you have
