Issues with Hosting a new RM Extension


Vaibhav S (106124) | asked May 27 '19, 2:55 a.m.
Hi, I am trying to host a DNG extesion on my local CLM Instance.

I referred the below 2 links for the same:

2. https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/RMExtensionsInTheWidgetCatalog50 - the details for Step-2 refer to a link               which is broken and the information is missing.

I followed the steps completely from Link-1, on adding Widget it says "Failed".

Is there any other reference link which can be accessed, or can the broken link be fixed.

Please let me know.

Thanks
Vaibhav

I also looked at this a while back and shared my experience here: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2016/03/02/alien-skies-peeking-into-doors-next-extensibility/ maybe that can help. 

Otherwise share the issue you are having. Maybe someone can help (maybe the link is not important)

<ModulePrefs title='DNG Cleanup Widget' height='250' scrolling='true'>
<Require feature='com.ibm.rdm.rm.api'></Require>
</ModulePrefs>
<Content type='html'>
<![CDATA[
<html>
   <head>
   </head>
   <body>
   Click on this Button to Run DNG Cleanup Utility
   <button onclick="myFunction()">Click me</button>
    
    <script >
    function myFunction() { 
alert("Start DNG Cleanup Utility"); 
    var wshShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");  
    alert("Creating Active X Object 3");

1)Make sure the widget catalog XML definition file is located in the proper path:

For Example if you are using liberty server:

C:\Programs\DOORSNG\server\liberty\servers\clm\dropins\war\extensions\WidgetCatalog.xml

 

2)And also ensure you enter the proper URL in the Advanced properties:

 

a)Make sure the url is properly entered in the Advanced Properties.


b)Under the  RM Client Component section--> com.ibm.rdm.widgetcatalog.internal.WidgetCatalog -->User Extension Catalog URL


c)Enter the URL that points to your widget catalog .(For Example:https://windows.svl.ibm.com:9443/extensions/WidgetCatalog.xml)


d)Return to the top of the page and click Save to finalize your changes.

 

3)Try adding the widgets again to RM 


Hope this helps!
