Uploading pronunciation files

Profiles users can add a recording of how their name is pronounced to enhance their profile. As administrator, you can use IBM® Tivoli® Security Integrator assembly-line commands to populate the profiles database repository with pronunciation files for your users.

About this task

You can use the dump_pronounce_to_files and load_pronounce_from_file assembly-line commands to populate the profiles database with pronunciation files. These commands are useful when you are moving the profiles database, allowing you to save the pronunciation information from the existing database on disk, repopulate the new database from the LDAP, and then load the pronunciation files back into the new database.

Procedure

To populate a new profiles database with pronunciation files, complete the following steps.
  1. Use the dump_pronounce_to_files.bat or dump_pronounce_to_files.sh command to read the existing pronunciation files from the Profiles database and store them on disk:

    The following table shows the properties that are used by this command and their default values. These properties can be found in the profiles_tdi.properties file.

    Property Description
    dump_pronounce_directory

    The directory where the extracted files are stored.

    The default value is ./dump_pronounce.

    dump_pronounce_file

    The list of people whose pronunciation files were collected.

    The default value is collect_pronounce.in.

    load_pronounce_simple_file

    The list of people whose pronunciation files were collected.

    The default value is collect_pronounce.in.

    If you want to load only a subset of files from a location, you edit this file.

    Note: When dumping multiple pronunciation files, there must be a period separator between each entry. If the separator is omitted, an error is generated when you use the load command to import the files into the profiles database.
  2. To populate the new database with the pronunciation files that you saved in the previous step, use the load_pronounce_from_files.bat or load_pronounce_from_files.sh command to read the files from disk and populate the profiles database with them
    Note: The table in step 1 shows the properties that relate to this command.

Example

Here is an example of an entry from the collect_pronounce.in file:
file:/C:/install_directory/TDISOL/TDI/./dump_pronounce/pron1197046202619_9.dat 
uid:FAdams
.
The characters following uid: correspond to the PROF_UID in the profiles database.

Note the required period separator between each entry.

For example:
file:/C:/install_directory/TDISOL/TDI/./dump_pronounce/pron1197046202619_9.dat 
uid:FAdams
.
file:/C:/install_directory/TDISOL/TDI/./dump_pronounce/pron6198046102314_6.dat 
uid:TAmado
