Represents the Note ID of an existing Person document to use when registering a user.

Defined in


Data type



To get: string$ = notesRegistration.ContactNoteID

To set: notesRegistration.ContactNoteID = string$


Used to register users who have existing Person documents created by syncing Active Directory users into the Domino directory.

Notes applications can identify these documents as Active Directory contacts. The currently selected document must have a text item called "objectGUID" which represents the unique identifier for an Active Directory contact. It must also NOT have a value for the item "certificate" as this would indicate the document has already been registered. See the example.

Return value

The Get method returns a string. There is no return for the Set method
