Enabling programs that store IDs in databases to use a vault

You can enable Notes® API programs that can store Notes® IDs in databases to use an ID vault. Doing this allows the users of such programs to take advantage of the ID management features that an ID vault provides.

About this task

Note: As of Domino 12.0.1, the IDs of vaulted iNotes and Verse users are always obtained from the vault rather than from user mail files.

Use the following steps to assign users of programs that store IDs in databases to an ID vault.


  1. Create and configure an ID vault. Assign the ID vault to a policy that is used by the API program users.
  2. Click the ID vault tab in the Security Settings Policy document.
  3. In the field Allow Notes-based programs to use the Notes ID vault, select Yes.
