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.
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.
Thanks to Marcel de Hoog, i got a solution for the missing pictures in Status Updater Plugin in Lotus Notes. Add com.ibm.lconn.statusupdates/download.image.enabled=true to your plugin_customization.ini. This works on Windows and Mac OS! Haven’t tested it on Linux. via: http://marceldehoog.blogspot.com/2011/12/status-updates-and-pictures.html
Michael Porter wrote a very interesting article with three examples, why Identity Management is really important. Some of the biggest usability pain points I’ve seen had less to do with the UI and more to do with the process of setting the users up correctly so they can see all the content to which they are entitled.
