Restricting execution access
You can protect your workstation by specifying different types of execution access for different people or organizational certifiers who run Notes scripts and formulas. For example, you may give all types of execution access to your Domino administrator, but allow no execution access to unsigned scripts or formulas.

By default, protected operations for scripts, code, and formulas not specified in the Execution Control List (ECL), whether signed or unsigned, cannot execute on your workstation without displaying the Execution Security Alert dialog box. However, scripts and formulas do run from any database created with a template that ships with Notes and are signed "Lotus Notes Template Development/Lotus Notes." This signature has complete execution access.

You can restrict access to signed LotusScript, Java applets, and JavaScript applications. To change the default settings in the ECL, see your administrator for assistance. Your administrator may have restricted your access to change your ECL.

Click any of these topics:

  • To restrict execution access
  • To reset your ECL back to your administrator's defaults

To restrict execution access

If your administrator has not restricted your access to change your ECL, you can modify your own ECL.

1. Choose File - Security - User Security.

2. Click "What Others Do" and either "Using Workstation," "Using Applets," or "Using Javascript."

3. (Optional) To add an item to the "When signed by" list, click Add; enter the name of the person or organizational certifier; for example, /Acme (click the person icon to choose a name from your Personal Address Book); click OK.

4. (Optional) To edit an item in the "When signed by" list, select the item, click Rename to edit the item or enter a new name, or click Remove to delete an item from the list; click OK.

5. Select the person or organizational certifier whose access you want to specify.

6. Enable the types of access you want this person or organizational certifier to have.

7. Click OK.

Note A user who shares a computer with others can set up his or her own ECL. ECLs are unique to each person's User ID.

To reset your ECL back to your administrator's defaults

You can reset your ECLs to the original settings your administrator provided for you.

1. Choose File - Security - User Security.

2. Click "What Others Do," and either "Using Workstation," "Using Applets," or "Using Javascript."

3. Click "Refresh All."
