The database access control list

Every database has an access control list (ACL) that specifies the level of access that users and servers have to a database. Although the names of access levels are the same for users and servers, those assigned to users determine the tasks that users can perform in a database, while those assigned to servers determine what information within the database the servers can replicate.

You must have Manager access to create or modify an ACL. Then, for each user name, server name, or group name in an ACL, you can specify:

Note: You can further restrict access to specific documents and fields within those databases using the Extended ACL, which is used in the Domino® Directory, the Extended Directory Catalog, and the Administration Requests database. Work with your server administrator to apply these security measures.

For more information on server access levels and replication, see Administering the Domino® System.
