Lotus Notes – ACL

Thanks in advance for any input given. I'm using Lotus Notes 6.5.5 and I want to know how can I view all databases that someone has access to? And if I change the name of a group or ACL in names.nsf, can I automatically replace the old group listing with the new one?

>how can I view all databases that someone has access to?

Look in the Database Catalog (aka Domain Catalog) under the Access Control Lists / By Name view.

    Just to add to Stiletto's response. The Catalog does indeed give this info but only for dbs which have the property setting "List in Database Catalog" ticked. The Catalog gathers db info everynight and creates summary docs for every database regardless of the property setting. However, all of the views exclude dbs without the property setting. The trick is to create an alternative set of views with no exclusion criteria. I have created a variety of additional views to assist me in db and template management. For example, a view which lists all databases by inheriting template. There is no issue with having extra views in the db. You just need to remember to protect them from design refreshes.

    Thanks for the information. I think creating additional views would help immensely. However, how do I access the design of the database catalog, in order to create these views? Many Thanks

    Open the catalog (catalog.nsf) using Domino Designer and make new views how you like. I'd suggest perhaps copying existing views and adding in extra columns or categorising by different fields. The one important thing you need to change is the selection criteria so all database documents are listed on your new views. The new selection criteria should look like this: SELECT @IsAvailable(ReplicaID)& @IsUnavailable(RepositoryType) as opposed to the original Lotus criteria: SELECT @IsAvailable(ReplicaID)& @IsUnavailable(RepositoryType)& !(DBListInCatalog = "0") Don't forget to protect your new views from subsequent design refreshes since the Lotus catalog template will be on the same server as the database and so will be refreshed each night.
