HCL Connections | Product Ideas Portal

Welcome to the HCL Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Thumbnail generation variables

As an admin, I want the ability to check, configure, and reset the last rendition of the media file that the thumbnail generation task has processed.


In the Connections code, the lastThumbnailEventFile variable stores the desired data.


However, currently, this value is not coded to be a configurable attribute like the external.thumbnailGeneration.batchSize and external.thumbnailGeneration.intervalInSeconds attributes which allow more control of the thumbnail generation process.


Please add an attribute for the lastThumbnailEventFile variable which will allow admins to configure its value via the config/com.ibm.lconn.share.platform.bootstrap.properties file in the same manner as the other thumbnail generation related attributes.
