To set: notesACLEntry .IsAdminReaderAuthor = flag

Legal values

  • True indicates that the entry is an administrative server and can modify Readers and Authors fields.
  • False indicates that the entry cannot modify Readers and Authors fields.


If the ACL entry is not an administration server, setting AdminReaderAuthor to True does nothing. No error occurs and the property remains False. Use IsAdminServer to check and change the entry.

After setting this property, you must call Save on the parent NotesACL in order for the changes to take effect. If you do not call Save, your changes to the NotesACLEntry will be lost.
