Export or copy an agent from one database to another

I have a database called AntiSpam.nsf. There are two agents in this database that I need to copy to my mail file for the AntiSpam database to start working. How does one export or copy an agent from one database to another?
All you need to do is open both databases in Domino Designer. View the list of agents (under Shared Code in R6) in AntiSpam.nsf, select them, and copy them (Edit –> Copy).

Then view the agent list in the mail database and paste the agents (Edit -> Paste).


  1. This assumes you have Designer or higher rights in both databases
  2. Depending on the version of Notes, you may have to copy and paste one agent at a time.
