Here is my latest Presentation
I uploaded my latest edition of my presentation on Jan 26
I also recommended Terri Warren’s session BP206 to go into auth and directory specifics. It’s on Monday at 1 pm.
Questions asked of me were :
Question: Setting up the WidgetContainer for Profiles Administration page
you can follow this link, it goes into setting up a ficticious company called Acme Airlines’s application. you can ignore that part and focus on the nice steps and pictures which show you how to configure and setup an administrator with the profiles Administration page.
Question: enabling tests with gadgets
you can test all your OpenSocial gadgets using the BootStrap homepage.
an example URL is
You are most likely going to get back a warning saying, Featured Disabled
In just a few steps you can enable it on your system.
On your deployment manager profile, open config/cells/
Edit the File
and look for
make sure enabled is true, allowSSOFeature is true, and allowIntranetProxyAccess is true.
Also set allServers=true
Sync the Nodes so the config goes down to Your AppServer, and then Restart the AppServer.
That should help get you started building and quickly testing the opensocial gadgets.
