Sametime and Connections Plugins in Lotus Notes

Notes Plugin sso

Some more points to my working configuration of Single Sign-On in Lotus Notes. Automating configuration with plugin_customization.ini I do a lot of software tests with my productive Notes Client (on Mac OS), so i often delete the Expeditor-folder in ~/Library/Application Support/Lotus Notes Data/. So i place configuration details in /Applications/Notes.app/Contents/MacOS/rcp/plugin_customization.ini, then the settings get automatically applied. # Connections Config com.ibm.lconn.client.base/server=http\://connections.example.com/profiles com.ibm.lconn.client.base/authtype=DOMINO-SSO com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.dominoresolveservername=false com.ibm.lconn.client.base/authserver=$hierarchical Domino-Server-Name$ com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.useclustermates=true com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.preferred.username.field=ShortName com.ibm.lconn.client.base/policy-mode=OVERWRITE com.ibm.lconn.client.base/enableConnectionsIntegration=true # Sametime Config com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/name=$Name for Community$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/host=$Hostname of Sametime Server$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/defaultAuthType=ST-DOMINO-SSO com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/authServerUrl=$hierarchical Domino Server Name$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/loginByToken=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/tokenLoginOnly=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/loginAtStartup=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.login/autologin=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.login/alwaysLoggedIn=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.imhub/disableExit=false # Status Updater Fix to show profile pictures com.ibm.lconn.statusupdates/download.image.enabled=true Sametime will only apply the settings of plugin_customization.

Notes Client 8.5.3 and Domino-SSO for Connections Plugins

In only two weeks starts LCTY Edcom Nachlese 2012 in Munich. I prepare a session on Single Sign On in Notes / Domino environments. So i had time to check some settings in Lotus Notes. Since 8.5.3 we have a new option Domino-SSO for Connections Plugin. I made several tests with my installed Notes Client on Mac OS, but i had no success. I tested with several settings in the preferences dialog and with different settings in plugin_customization.ini. I had one configuration where i can use Sametime Tokenbased Login and leave “Domino Single Sign-On Server” empty in connections preferences, but this works only with running Notes Client and i had to apply the setting again after restart the client.
