The Deny Access list is used to identify which Lotus Notes users do not have access to a Lotus Domino server. This can be set for individuals who left an organization or to deny access to one server while a Lotus Notes user moves to another domain or server.
Managing and updating user access lists can be frustrating. Recently, I have had to search my Deny Access lists more often. To assist with this, I created a toolbar button.
To begin, create a new smart icon button on the toolbar you use in your Notes Administrator client and paste the following code into the button.
Note: This code is just a slight modification of the "Find Group Member" action button that's available in the Domino Directory. The only change occurs on the "GroupSearch:=" line. The original code uses "[Canonicalize]", instead of "[Abbreviate]".
To use the button, follow these steps:
- Open your Notes Administrator client.
- Select "Deny Access Groups" from the navigation pane.
- Click on the toolbar button.
- Enter the Notes common name exactly as you would when administering "Find Group Member" (e.g. "John Doe").
- This returns a list of all of groups containing the name that you have specified.
