Adding a shared directory for Touchpoint profile photos

Create a file store for the profile photos that users will upload from the Touchpoint app.


  1. Add two directories to your SHARED_CONTENT_STORE, as in the following examples:
    • Linux: /opt/IBM/Connections/data/shared/touchpoint/upload_pic
    • Windows: D:\IBM\Connections\data\shared\touchpoint\upload_pic
  2. Grant read, write, and delete rights to this folder to each IBM HTTP Server.
    Note: On Linux, this folder must also have read and write access for the user who is running the HTTP process.
  3. Make sure that the cluster hosting the Touchpoint web app also has access to the folder.
