Giving apps access to your data

Give apps access your IBM® Connections data and allow them to post data to IBM Connections.

Your administrator must register the apps that are allowed to ask for permission to use your data.

When you open a registered app, you can decide whether you want to give the app access to your data. If you give permission, the app can use your data or push data to IBM Connections. Access is given to all content that you create in IBM Connections. For example, the app can use your profile photograph and personal information, as well as your files, comments, bookmarks, and blog entries. It could also post information to your IBM Connections home page status.

You can remove permissions from apps in IBM Connections: Hover the cursor over your name on any page in IBM Connections and select Settings from the menu that appears. Then, click the Application Access tab and, in the list of authorized apps, click Remove to remove permission.
