Working with Domino® Change Manager constraints

When you create a plan, you can add constraints to specify when the moves will be made to affected databases. By default, no constraints are added to a plan automatically.

About this task

When you edit the plan, you can assign one or more constraints or constraint sets. You can add a constraint to plans or to database move sequences in a plan. The Domino® Change Control database (DOMCHANGE.NSF) includes predefined constraints and constraint sets.

The default constraints are:

  • During standard change windows
  • Is after hours
  • Not during change freeze period
  • Not on workdays

The default constraints sets are:

  • Major change
  • Minor change
  • Trivial change

You can view a definition of each constraint and constraint sets as follows.


  1. Make sure that you have the Change Admin role so that you can edit, create, and delete constraints.
  2. From the Domino® Administrator, click the Server - Analysis tab.
  3. Click Domino® Change Control, and then select the Setup - Constraints view.
