Enabling Feeds

Feeds are enabled by default. However, in the internal communities version, basic authentication is required by default. Using 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 (using basic authentication).

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > Feeds
Note: For users to use the links available in feeds, you'll need to 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 by setting the jiveURL system property at System > Management > System Properties.
