Options for Signing Database Design with Server ID

Michael Williams
Last Modified: 2017-05-17
We are attempting to improve an elevation of design process and this includes automating a number of steps. Signing the Database Design Elements with the Server ID is one of those steps.

What are my options for signing all the Database Design Elements with a Server ID?

I believe I can....
1. Create an Admin Request out of Admin4.nsf and let AdminP handle the signing.
2. Create an agent that runs the SignDatabaseWithServerID (Which creates an Admin Request in Admin4.nsf)
3. Create an agent that runs on behalf of the Server ID that performs a notesDatabase.Sign

Has anyone does something similar to this?

Thanks in Advance.

You could look into the possibilities of the TeamStudio software suite.
No experience on this subject myself, never really needed it.

Unfortunately we are not going to be able to do that. I used to use Ytria to sign with a User ID, not the Server ID.

The Admin client allows you to sign with your current ID, so does the R9 Designer client (right-click on the db, Application, Sign Design). Manually, of course...

That's what I figured. We did not want to spend much time on this and it looks like this piece may have to stay manual.

AdminP might be the best option at this point. In the future I can sign the design with an agent that runs on the server.
