All Users Accessing All Connections

The most common way to configure Jive for SharePoint is to add a SharePoint Integration that all Jive users can access. You can do this by enabling the Everyone option and allowing all SharePoint Connections.

You should have already named your storage provider as shown in Creating and Defining SharePoint Integrations.
  1. To adjust default settings for all Jive users who can create Jive Places, go to Default Settings, and select Enabled and click Edit Settings. For example, from here you can change the default settings for stream integration and allowed SharePoint connections for these users.
  2. In Allowed SharePoint Connections, select Allow all SharePoint Connections so all users can access every SharePoint connection set up in the Admin Console.
  3. Under Integration Options of Places and Sites, select the default behavior for the SharePoint integration. These defaults will be the only options for users if you also select this option (and deslect other options) in the User Choice Permissions and Remote Document Options sections. For more on integration types, see SharePoint Integration Types.
    • New Site - Storage Only
    • New Site - Storage + Jive functionality
    • Existing Site
  4. Under User Choice Permissions, select how flexible user options should be when creating or modifying Jive places.
    • Select integration types that you want users to choose from when they create a Jive Place and link it to a SharePoint site. Make sure you at least select Existing Site if you want to link a Jive place to an existing SharePoint site.
    • Select Choose the parent site collection when creating a new site to give users the ability to add a new SharePoint site to an existing Site Collection of their choice.
  5. Use Remote Documents Options to give users one or more activity types to choose how remote document activity is published in the stream.
    1. Select Make the stream setting for Remote Documents configurable when creating a new Place to activate the remote document options described in the next step.
    2. Select one or more of the following types of activity for remote documents. Users can select remote document activity for their Jive Place when creating or editing it. For more on remote document activity in streams, see Remote Document Options.
      • Hide in Activity
      • Show limited info in Activity
      • Show in Activity
  6. Click Save.
  7. Under User Mapping, select the mapping that makes sense for your environment.
    Map users by email address from profile field
    Map SharePoint's users email address to a field in Jive (defaults selection is user's email address specified in Jive). This can be changed to any string field in the Jive's user info Note: Custom field (string type) could be added to the users profile in Jive for the user mapping.
    Map users by user name from profile fields (Domain\Username)
    This option can be used to map by two fields in Jive, one that contains the Domain and one that contains the username. For example, domain and username/email and so on.
  8. Click Save.
