Cisco WebEx Connect

Cisco WebEx Social can be used to provide the client interface for the Cisco WebEx Connect (also called Jabber IM) instant messaging service. To set up Cisco WebEx Connect, first follow the directions in the "Using WebEx IM Chat and Presence" section in Cisco WebEx Social Administration Guide. Then, to set up Cisco WebEx Connect for use with Cisco WebEx Social, see the "WebEx IM SSO" section in Cisco WebEx Social Administration Guide.

The WebEx Connect user names (IDs) must be the email address of the user in WebEx Social for this integration to work.

After performing the procedures that are described in Cisco WebEx Social Administration Guide, the organization administrator (your WebEx Connect Administrator) must log into the WebEx Connect Administration Tool and trust the delegated domain. For information about accessing the WebEx Connect Administration Tool, see Cisco WebEx Connect Administration Guide, which is available at https://support.webex.com/webex/v1.2/common_docs/en_US/orgadmin/index.htm#17159.htm.

To configure the primary organization (not the delegated organization) in the WebEx Connect Administration Tool, go to the Organization Administration page and follow these steps:

1. Select the Configuration tab.

2. In the Configuration tab, click Security Settings.

3. Click the Partner Delegated Authentication link.

4. In the Partner Delegated Authentication page, take these actions:

a. Enable Member.

b. Enable Org Admin.

c. Select NameID Field.

WebEx Single Sign-On and WebEx Meeting Center

This section describes how to integrate WebEx Meeting Center with Cisco WebEx Social. This integration allows users to start and join WebEx sessions through Cisco WebEx Social.

Before WebEx single sign-on (SSO) can be enabled, you must parameters for use with Cisco WebEx Meeting Center [Aaron: Looks like a word is missing just before "parameters". Should it be "configure" or "enable"? or something else?]. For configuration procedures, see the "WebEx SSO" section in Cisco WebEx Social Administration Guide.

To enable SSO permissions with WebEx Meeting Center through Cisco WebEx Social and configure SAML using the WebEx Meetings Administration Settings page, follow these steps.


Step 1 In a web browser, enter the following URL to start WebEx Meeting Center Site Administration and log in with an administrator user name and password:

sitename.webex.com/webex/admin.php, where sitename is the name of your site as provisioned when deploying WebEx meetings.

Step 2 Click SSO Configuration in the Home menu.

The SSO Configuration page appears.

Step 3 From the SSO Configuration page, check the Host and the Site Admin boxes under Partner SAML Authentication Access.

Step 4 Click Update.


Content Management Interoperability Services

Cisco WebEx Social has a built in content management system (CMS). For sites that have existing document repositories, Cisco WebEx Social integrates with compatible Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) 1.0 systems.

Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is a standards proposal. CMIS consists of a set of Web services for sharing information among disparate content repositories that seeks to ensure interoperability for applications using that use content repositories. CMIS provides a content management domain-specific data model, a set of generic services that act on that data model, and several protocol bindings for these services, including SOAP and Representational State Transfer (AtomPub).

For information about how to setup external document repositories, see the "Content Repositories" section in Cisco WebEx Social Administration Guide.
