Enabling Feeds

Feeds are enabled by default. From the Admin Console, you can turn feeds on or off, specify which format should be available, and whether users (via their feed readers) should be required to send a username and password with feed requests.

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > Feeds

After you have made any adjustments to the feed settings, be sure to click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.

If you have an internal community (i.e., communities that typically involve only employees or other internal audiences), basic authentication is required by default.

Note: For users to use the links available in feeds, be sure you've set the jiveURL property. This tells the application the public Web path to your installation. This is necessary to support links to it from content listed in the feed reader. You typically set the jiveURL when you're setting up. After setting up, you can set or change the URL in the Admin Console. For more information, see Changing the jiveURL.
