My company uses Jive internally as well as a large intranet with SharePoint sites, static html sites, etc.
We have a few departmental home pages that were built as .aspx with just plain html. I'm using an rss script that pulls Jive rss feeds into each page and works great. However it only works great if you've been on Jive already that day and you are signed in. We have Jive set up so it signs you in as soon as you open it so no need for username or password.
Problem: If you have NOT been on Jive that day, once you open the SharePoint (non-web part aspx) page you will not see the rss feeds and the user just sees blank space in those areas of the page.
Goal: Allow for all users to be able to see the feeds on each department home page without having to physically open a Jive session.
I've tried all sorts of little work around hacks like hidden windows, and quick popups that open and disappear but everything like that opens the Jive session too late after the web page has loaded.
Any suggestions or tips or examples to share are much appreciated.
If you have access to the code of your pages, pulling the information in via the REST API in the pages code-behind and displaying it is pretty straightforward if you are ok with using a service account to pull in the data and display it. There are examples in the .Net SDK. If you need the requests to be authenticated as the logged on user if becomes more involved.
