Heads up : Cannot Use XPINC with Enforce Consistent ACL in 852

Just a quick heads up over something that has wasted the best part of a day between us and our customer – oh and IBM who do their IT.

You cannot use XPINC in 852 ( it is fixed in 853 ) if the ACL has Enforce Consistent ACL.

The technote is below – why developers have to log in to see these things is beyond me – who in your organisation has authority to see this ? ( that is a rhetorical question )

Image:Heads up : Cannot Use XPINC with Enforce Consistent ACL in 852

Error description

XPages viewed in the Notes client from a local replica gives an
error 500 you are not authorized for users that are not listed
explicitly in the ACL.  If they are a member of a group on the
server and pull the local replica with enforce consistent ACL
is when we see this issue

Local fix

– Add the user explicitly to the ACL on the server
– add a group to the local address book with this group in it
– upgrade to 8.5.3 client,  this issue does not occur in 8.5.3

Heads up for upgraders : 8.5.3 cannot support > 1 rich text editor per xpage if the image upload feature is used.

Just a quick heads up.

8.5.3 ( XPINC and Domino ) cannot support more than 1 rich text editor per Xpage if the image upload feature is used.

This will break apps that work in 8.5.2 including the Team Room status reports page ( as reported by Dan Herman ).

You can see the behaviour here :


IBM have been pro-active in looking at the issue but the current response is :

Thank you for providing us the twotrxbroken.nsf database. After looking into the application you have shared to us together with our IBM lotus developer team, based on their feedback, this issue is a known issue and it is only happening for Lotus 8.5.3 and currently there is no fix for this issue yet. However, this issue has already been reported to L3 via SPR SODY8RBKY6 / APAR LO67196 for future enhancement.

As there is nothing much I can do at this moment. Please let me know if you have further question or we may proceed to close this ticket.

Looking forward to hear from you again.

Setting up GIT ( or Hg ? ) for Domino Designer – a collaborative project

I have been working through some community materials trying to set up GIT and although the basics are working there is a lot of detail that I am struggling with before GIT  is actually a value adding tool.

I am asking for volunteers to help with a collaborative effort to determine what is the best practice in this area. I am happy to take on the task of writing up the outcome of collaborative effort and adding it to the Developers Wiki.

You can see the XPages forum post here => http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/xpagesforum.nsf/topicThread.xsp?action=openDocument&documentId=66F8EEEE446D0EFC852579A20052C489

All you need to do is chip in with your experiences.

Thanks, Sean
