Replica IDs

A replica has the same replica ID as the original application. This distinguishes a replica from a copy of an application made by clicking File > Application > New Copy.

The common ID lets you replicate changes between the replica and the original application. If you have two copies of an application with different replica IDs, you can't replicate between them.

Tip: If you copy an application (.nsf) file using your operating system, the copy is a replica. Only copies made in Notes® are not replicas.

To see an application's replica ID

  1. Open or select the application.
  2. From the menu, click File > Application > Properties.
  3. Click the Information tab.

    Application properties - Information tab

  4. Look under Replica ID.
