27.7 Displaying the User’s Profile Picture in Email Notifications

By default, a user’s profile picture (avatar) is no longer included in email notifications sent from Vibe. This is because Micro Focus GroupWise does not always display the profile picture correctly.

To configure Vibe to always include the profile picture in email notifications:

  1. Change to the following directory:

    Linux:

    /opt/novell/teaming/apache-tomcat/
                               webapps/ssf/WEB-INF/classes/config

    Windows:

    c:\Program Files\Novell\Teaming\apache-tomcat\
                               webapps\ssf\WEB-INF\classes\config
  2. Make a backup copy of the ssf-ext.properties file, which is located in the same directory as the ssf.properties file.

  3. Open the ssf.properties file in a text editor.

  4. Search for the following line:

    email.showAvatarInHeader=false
  5. Open the ssf-ext.properties file in a text editor.

  6. Copy the email.showAvatarInHeader=false line from the ssf.properties file to the bottom of the ssf-ext.properties file.

  7. Replace false with true so that the line now reads

    email.showAvatarInHeader=true
  8. Save and close the ssf-ext.properties file.

  9. Close the ssf.properties file without saving it.

  10. Stop and restart Vibe.
