Assigning users or groups to roles

Give the users in your organization permission to work with the data relevant to them by assigning them roles.

About this task

After you establish roles for the users in your organization, you can start assigning users to those roles by adding them individually, or in groups using the Access tab in HCL Domino Volt . For example, you can assign users or groups as defined in your LDAP to Roles. You can use the search to find users and groups within your company directory, or database. There are several predefined groups from which to choose:
All Authenticated Users
Any user who is authenticated with your organization.
Anonymous Users
Any user who you want to work anonymously with the application.
Invited Users
Any anonymous user who receives a unique URL generated from within stages when an application changes from one stage to another. A user who is not normally given access to the form in that stage can use that URL to participate in the workflow in that instance.
Note: Requires allowed anonymous access.
Instance Creator
The user who submitted a form.
Note: You cannot add All Authenticated Users to any role that has application Edit permissions. This prevents the applications from all other users from appearing in your Manage tab, making your applications easier to find. This also prevents your application from appearing on the Manage page for every other authenticated user.

To add users from predefined groups:


  1. In the Access tab, go to the navigation tree and click the role you want to assign in the Assign Users menu.
    The Assign Users window opens.
  2. Add new users or groups, or select from a predefined group:
    • To create new users or groups, enter the name of an individual user or group. Select it, then click the Add user plus sign.
      Note: There is a limit to the length of a single user name, or ID. The limit varies by language and character set. For example, the English limit is 256 characters. If you exceed the character limit, you are shown an error message when you attempt to save the form.
    • To use an existing group, select the group and click the Add group plus sign.
    The Role Members window shows the members that are assigned to the role.
  3. You can remove members from a role by clicking Delete user for the name of the member., or run a test to see whether Domino Volt can find the member.
    • To remove a member from a group, click Delete group for the name of the member.
    • To test if Domino Volt can find a group member, click Validate.
