Can I use Common Names in computed controlled access sections?

Hello all, hope you are well!!

What are the 'rules' for using computed controlled access sections?  I want to give access to the user(s) named in a field but it doesn't appear to work if the field contains common names..  Is this the case and is there any way around it?

Also, what about readers and authors, do Common Names work and should I use them?

If anyone could provide a quick summary of what works and should be used then I'd be very grateful as i'd like to have editable names fields being translated to the common version, but still working when referred to in computed controlled access sections, author and reader fields..

Thanks a lot

Ian

The common name becoming a valid entity for access control or reader/author field depends upon the way the person record is setup in the address book. Check the shortname field of the person reecord ( or you can click the db icon and then click the groups and roles bar in the statur bar , this will show if your common name is listed to be authenticated), if it doesn't contain the common name part as seperate entry then server doesn't know how to validate the userid. So to avoid this problem, use Fully Qualified Name (i.e with OU and O part)

Cheers for that..  I've had a look and my short name is entered but not the same as my common name, which is pretty useful and my common name appears in the groups and roles bit!!  So, any ideas what that means then?

The Groups And Roles dialog contains groups returned by querying the FQN against your Address book, plus the id information (not the shortnames). But the shortname field is used to authenticate !

Short question Heman: what happens when accessing a server in adjacent Notes domain using a cross certificate? There is no person record of mine on this server :-)
