Setting up Quickr® integration with iNotes®

IBM® Quickr® has been integrated with IBM® iNotes®.

About this task

To enable and set up iNotes® integration with Quickr®, perform these tasks:

  • Enable Quickr® integration
  • Set up an HTTP-proxy servlet
  • Enable session-based authentication
  • Specify a list of user-friendly servers to display in user preferences

Enable Quickr® integration

About this task

To enable this feature, use the mail policy setting Allow Quickr Integration, on the iNotes® - Configuration tab of the mail policy settings document.

If you want to enable or disable this feature temporarily on a trial basis, you can use the notes.ini file setting iNotes_WA_Quickr=1 to enable it server-wide, or iNotes_WA_Quickr=0 to disable it server-wide. This notes.ini file setting overrides any policy setting.

Set up an HTTP-proxy servlet

About this task

Set up an HTTP-proxy servlet to specify a list of allowed sites. To set up the HTTP-proxy servlet, edit the security policy settings document and provide the information on the Proxies tab. If the Quickr® server is in the same SSO domain as the IBM® Domino® server, then an LTPA token should also be included in the list of allowed cookies. For information on setting up an HTTP-proxy servlet, see the topic Using an HTTP-proxy Servlet to restrict URLs to external servers.
Note: If you used a file to specify allowed sites in a previous release, you must set up a security policy instead. The file is no longer supported.

Set up session-based authentication


To use Quickr® integration features in iNotes®, enable session-based authentication using either single-server or multi-server authentication, also known as single sign-on or SSO, for your Domino® mail server. If you configure your Domino® server for SSO and the Quickr® servers that you are connecting to are in the same domain, make sure the LTPA token is listed in the proxies tab of the security policy settings, as mentioned previously. If the Quickr® server is not in the same domain, users are prompted for each session to authenticate with the servers they are connecting to.

Specify user-friendly names for URLs

About this task

To make it easier for users to add a place, you can use the Proxy servlet name/URL pairs mail policy setting to specify a list of Quickr® servers and assign user-friendly names for the servers. The user-friendly names then display in the user preferences for Quickr®. When a user browses to add a place, they can browse for places by selecting from a list of user-friendly names, rather than URLs. For additional information on setting mail policy settings, see the topic Creating mail policy settings for iNotes® users.

When browsing the Quickr® servers, the list of feeds returned from Quickr® is limited to 50 by default due to performance considerations. To change the default number of feeds allowed, use the notes.ini file setting iNotes_WA_Quickr_Feed_Page_Size and specify the number of feeds to return in the server's notes.ini file.

User notes

About this task

iNotes® supports these user tasks:
  • Adding a Quickr® place using Quickr® user preferences
  • Inserting a Quickr® link into messages
  • Viewing Quickr® links in messages sent to them
  • Saving an attachment in mail they receive to a Quickr® place or to a folder in a place
  • Replacing an attachment in a received message with a Quickr® link
  • Renaming uploaded files if there is a name conflict on a server
  • Page through long place listings

If you have Quickr® Connectors installed, iNotes® does not support the connector's preferences and place settings. To use those place settings in iNotes®, you must configure them using preferences.
