Jive seems to have made changes in how and what things can be done using URL parameters. I'm finding in Cloud 8x I'm no longer able to create discussions etc. and have the form pre-populate with tags using the &tags=... parameter.
Are you on cloud 8x and it still works for you for creating groups as you mention and other content creations like discussions? Can you provide a URL example that still works for you?
For now the only thing I've found that might help you is Ryan Rutan's Quick Templates Plugin QuickTemplates - Plugin
yes, we are on Jive Cloud which is regularly updated to the latest version (so 8.0 now).
"tags" parameter seems to work, but I don't know what are others parameters and how to use them. That's why I'm asking if anyone used the "edit-place.jspa" script and knows a little bit more than me? or if there is documentation about it somewhere?
It would really help me lot to enhance the user experience of the sales teams if I can solve this.
My issue is about group creation not about document or discussion creation: this is not the same URI and parameters.
FYI, we also help users to create document with predefined tags and contents template, by using forms apps, which provide a good user experience for what we need.
Can you paste a sample of a discussion URL with the &tags parameter that works for you in 8? For some reason I'm not getting it to work anymore on 8 - wondering if the URL has changed (it changed from 6 to 7 so maybe changed again to 8). Thanks!
discussion create is not exactly the topic of my initial question, but here is what you need:
- URL to create discussion with a specific tag in a place the user can choose would be: http://xxxxxx.jiveon.com/discussion/create.jspa?sr=cmenu&tags=discussion-tag
- URL to create discussion with a specific tag in a specific group would be: http://xxxxxx.jiveon.com/discussion/create.jspa?sr=cmenu&containerType=700&containerID=1781&tags=discussion-tag
However, I'm still not able to find how to set tags with spaces in this URL and still don't know what the other parameters for group creation (group type, template, ...) are.
Hey Thierry Marchandise - Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any references to being able to use URL parameters like these to auto-configure new groups during creation. It doesn't appear that this is a feature today. It may be worth while posting this as an idea in the Ideas for Jive space so that our product managers can review this and evaluate it to be added to the platform.
I had the same problem. So I was sad to read this thread.
But I found a way to add a tag when creating a discussion, even if it contains a space.
Replace space by then encode it (%26nbsp%3B)
Here is the result link :
IMHO it should be the same when creating a group.
Hope it helps.
PS: I tested this on a hosted Jive 7 instance.
Meanwhile I've already changed the tag to remove the space, but next time, I'd know how to handle this. thanks a lot for sharing this
