The configuration item referred to in this article was introduced in version 3.5.0 of the Ephox Editors for IBM Connections package. This article is not applicable to previous versions.

Enhanced Media Embed is not supported for IC 5.5, has not been tested on IC 5.5 and may not work on IC 5.5. This may result in the service not functioning for https links due to Java 6 and generated iframes being stripped by various applications within connections.

Java 6 incompatible

Note that Java 6 can not support enhanced media embed as it can not communicate with modern servers using the https protocol.

As IC5.5 only supports Java 6 we strongly recommend disabling enhanced media embed if you are using IC5.5. Alternatively you can install the services on a different server running Java 7+ and customize the service location.

The Services package contains an enhanced media embed service that enhances the functionality of the editor in IBM Connections.

Link conversion to enhanced media embeds is enabled by default, but can be disabled via an integration configuration setting.  Disabling enhanced media embed will cause the editor to skip fetching media embeds for new auto-links.  The steps for for enabling / disabling the enhanced media embed are outlined below:

New deployments:

To disable enhanced media embed:

  1. In the <directory with uncompressed installation files>/config/config.js file, set "linkEmbedEnabled" to 'false'.
  2. Restart the 'Common' enterprise application.

To re-enable enhanced media embed:

  1. In the <directory with uncompressed installation files>/config/config.js file, set "linkEmbedEnabled" to 'true'.
  2. Restart the 'Common' enterprise application.

Iframe support limitations

The enhanced media embed is always disabled in Community descriptions and Events as, in IC 6, iframes are not allowed in those applications.

Existing deployments:

Follow the instructions located at: Changing Customizations after Deployment to change the configuration on existing deployments, using the values listed above.
