How do you configure TRIRIGA for Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI)?


You can configure TRIRIGA to use Tivoli Directory Integrator as its ETL runtime engine to run ETLJobItems from within TRIRIGA.

Before you begin

Install Tivoli Directory Integrator, if not already installed, on all the TRIRIGA systems that could run a TDI ETL Job Item.  During the TDI install:

  • Make note of the installation directory you enter on the Destination panel. You will enter this value later in TRIRIGAWEB.properties.
  • Select either installation type. TRIRIGA requires only the TDI Server component.
  • When prompted for the location of the Solution Directory, you can select any option. TRIRIGA specifies its own solution directory at runtime.  However selecting the option “Use Install Directory” may simplify troubleshooting.
  • Make note of the value you enter in the Server Port field on the Server Port Values Panel. You will enter this value later in TRIRIGAWEB.properties.
  • Clear the “Start the Configuration Editor” check box on the Install Complete panel.
  • Note: This step is very important for TDI/TRIRIGA integration to work. After you have installed Tivoli Directory Integrator, update it with the recommended fix packs (per TRIRIGA support matrix). TDI must be at least at FP04 (7.1.1.4) or it  will not automatically start the TririgiaETLDispatch.xml assembly line which will result in ETL job items failing to run successfully.

Procedure

  1. Edit TRIRIGAWEB.properties file to enable TRIRIGA to manage TDI server.  Set the following properties…
  2. Install a JDBC driver library so that Tivoli Directory Integrator can use it to access TRIRIGA database…
  3. Edit TDI global.properties file to allow TRIRIGA to check and stop the TDI server from localhost without requiring authentication and authorization certificates. Set the api.remote.ssl.on property to false to tell TDI to trust requests from localhost…
  4. Start Tivoli Directory Integrator Agent from TRIRIGA Admin Console and verify that it starts successfully…

Is there a way to specify the order of results in OSLC JSON output?


Is there any way we can specify the sequence of resource attributes to appear in the JSON-formatted Get query output? We are looking for a pre-defined set of ordered resource attributes to appear in the OSLC Get query output.

You should be able to use the oslc.orderBy parameter to define the ordering of results. If you are talking about the default ordering without that parameter, then I think the query definition of the query capability should define the ordering.

FM:Systems: Integrating IoT-based sensors for real-time utilization


I’ve been closely watching the evolution of the modern office over the past several years as many organizations embrace alternative workplace strategies. This has been particularly driven by the ability of employees to work anytime and anywhere due to really incredible mobile technologies. While this has offered new and incredibly efficient ways to work, it’s also provided companies and institutions alike with new possibilities for better utilization of space. But it also has created some unique challenges when an organization asks itself, “How well are we using our space when our employees rarely sit in the same space day-to-day?”

Real-time Space Utilization Analysis

The answer is newly emerging Internet of Things (IoT) based sensor technologies that include a range of techniques such as heat sensing, vibration sensing, triangulation and 3D stereoscopic people sensing cameras. FM:Systems has formed a partnership with CoWorkr for instance…

3D Stereoscopic People Sensing

A second technology that I am very excited about which we just integrated and introduced at our annual User Conference is 3D stereoscopic cameras that perform people counting in and out of specific areas that have delineated on your floor plans! We’ve integrated the Hella APS-90 and 180 cameras

How do you integrate Exchange with TRIRIGA using IBM Domino?


I’m trying to do a reservation integration between Exchange (Outlook 365) and TRIRIGA. But since TRIRIGA is on-premise, it has several firewall restrictions in order to reach Exchange. As a solution, we are using IBM Domino to relay the SMTP messages from Exchange to TRIRIGA. The flow would be:

  • User books a room on Exchange using the web client.
    • The Send connector sends the email to Domino by using the forwarding contact for the room.
  • Domino receives the email and forwards it to the TRIRIGA server.
    • It should relay the message without modifying it in any way.
  • TRIRIGA receives and processes the SMTP message.
    • What we expected: The reservation should’ve been created.
    • What we see: TRIRIGA can’t find the room. It seems that the SMTP message is missing the “spec_id” of the room.

Has anyone implemented a similar solution? From Exchange to Domino to TRIRIGA? If yes, how did you configure the environments? Where should the “spec_id” be in the SMTP message that is sent to TRIRIGA?

Serraview: IWMS 2.0 achieves true integrated best-in-breed systems


With the emergence of new workplace models and technologies, we are starting to see a shift away from traditional Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS) to stand-alone software systems integrated through common APIs in order to achieve true best of breed capabilities across multiple service needs. In fact, one of the original founders of the IWMS concept, Michael Bell, has defined this shift as IWMS 2.0. According to Mr. Bell, IWMS 2.0 has the potential to achieve lower costs, faster implementation and valuable data-driven insights…

At Lighthouse.io, we are strongly aligned with Michael Bell’s IWMS 2.0 vision. We are focused on solving very specific challenges for facilities managers… For a facility manager, these challenges form only one part of their overall remit. Whilst it’s tempting to build out a system that covers the entire facilities management function, we realize that by doing so we would be sacrificing the quality of our core product. Therefore, our preference is to integrate with complimentary products that are best of breed and solve a different set of challenges for facilities managers.

To illustrate the IWMS 2.0 model in practice, let’s explore how Lighthouse.io could integrate with another best in breed software product – Serraview. Serraview is a leader in space planning and management. Lighthouse.io is a leader in commercial cleaning software and optimizing delivery of facilities services. Combined, these two products can provide facility managers with an end-to-end solution for managing employees, assets, and delivery of facilities services…
