To get started, you must be listed in the Domino Directory ACL and assigned, at a minimum, the [Policy Creator] and [Policy Modifier] roles. Complete the following steps to check your authority level. If you do not have this authority, you will need to work with a Domino administrator to obtain these roles.
Step 1. Locate the Domino Directory icon from your Notes client.
Step 2. Select the File -> Application -> Access Control menu option.
Step 3. Locate and click on your name. Verify you have the [Policy Creator] and [Policy Modifier] roles assigned to your ID (Figure 16).
Note: Some companies use group names to manage access. If your name does not appear in the ACL, you will need to review the group names by opening the Domino Directory and manually checking the groups listed in the ACL.
Step 4. Click OK to save the settings. You're now ready to start creating the policy documents.
