Your Notes User ID and how to store it

You must have a User ID to login to HCL Notes®. Your User ID, a file that your administrator creates, contains information that Notes uses to identify you. Your User ID is located in the Notes/Data directory and can be recognized by the extension ID, for example JUSER.ID.

Your User ID contains the name of the ID owner (usually this is your name) and certificates.

You can view the contents of your User ID by clicking File > Security > User Security (Macintosh OS X users: Notes > Security > User Security).

Because your User ID acts as your identification, you must store it in a safe place just as you would a passport or driver's license.

When you are away from your computer, you should always lock your ID to protect the data that you have accessed with your User ID.
