Feed working for IBM Community Forum but not Blog


Adam Dilling (1114) | asked Mar 10 '16, 6:07 p.m.
I am able to create a news feed widget in RTC 6.0 that links to a IBM community Forum but unable to get it to work with a Blog post. Is there something special with Blogs that has to be configured or is it not capable of showing these?

Error when the Blog feed URL is added -

An internal system error occurred while loading the feed:
com.ibm.team.repository.common.TeamRepositoryException: Unexpected response from https://w3-connections.ibm.com/blogs/roller-ui/rendering/feed/3ca8555e-cb7b-471e-b385-69cfdad27ac7. Expected a 200 response code, but got 302. Please check your server configuration.

How did you work out this URL? It does not look correct. At the bottom of the blog page, there should be two links for feed for blog entries/comments. You should just use them as is. In your case, the links should be
https://w3-connections.ibm.com/blogs/roller-ui/rendering/feed/3ca8555e-cb7b-471e-b385-69cfdad27ac7/entries/atom?lang=en
https://w3-connections.ibm.com/blogs/roller-ui/rendering/feed/3ca8555e-cb7b-471e-b385-69cfdad27ac7/comments/atom?lang=en

Note that blog feed insists of adding the ?lang=en at the end, and that is why the HTTP 302 code appears.

Yes I did use those URLs that match exactly from the links at the bottom of the page. I also tried variations like removing just the ?lang=en and removing /comments/atom?lang=en?lang=en with no success.

If you monitor the network trace when accessing the feed using a browser (Chrome or Firebug), what do you see in the "Location" response header when you get the HTTP 302 code?
