Installing the eXo Platform Plugin for SugarCRM
This tutorial will guide you through the setup of the eXo Platform plugin for SugarCRM. If you want to see this in action before installing the plugin, have a look at the video demo eXo Platform plugin for SugarCRM.
Once you have installed the eXo Platform plugin, you will need to install it in your instance of SugarCRM:
Next, you will need to configure the eXo server URL. By default it is set to http://localhost:8080.
The eXo Platform plugin uses OpenSocial to publish activities into a space. This means you will need to configure the oAuth key as well as the OpenSocial RPC URL. In your SugarCRM installation, edit the file custom/modules/Connectors/connectors/sources/ext/rest/spaces/config_spaces.php to reflect your settings. Don't forget to change the os_oauth_key_secret. The oAuth key in eXo Platform needs to be configured as well. In your eXo Platform installation, edit the file gatein/conf/portal/portal/configuration.xml (if it does not exist, create it).
Make sure to change the value of the property sharedSecret to the os_oauth_key_secret you set earlier in the file config_spaces.php.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <configuration xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.exoplaform.org/xml/ns/kernel_1_1.xsd http://www.exoplaform.org/xml/ns/kernel_1_1.xsd" xmlns="http://www.exoplaform.org/xml/ns/kernel_1_1.xsd"> <component> <key>org.exoplatform.social.opensocial.oauth.ServiceProviderStore</key> <type>org.exoplatform.social.opensocial.oauth.ServiceProviderStore</type> <init-params> <properties-param> <name>Sugar CRM</name> <description>Consumer key and secret for our sugar CRM installation.</description> <property name="consumerKey" value="SugarCRMKey" /> <property name="sharedSecret" value="MySuperSecretKey" /> </properties-param> </init-params> </component> </configuration>
The installation and set-up process is now complete. You can now start to use the eXo Platform plugin to add activity streams to groups and functions within your SugarCRM implementation.
