OOO server component

You need to install this server component in order to have the XPages web app installed (ooo.nsf).

For both download and installation instructions, please read about the OOO server component for more information.


How to use it

1) Access the XPages Web App on Domino server using the following URL syntax:

http://hostname/ooo.nsf (or https://hostname/ooo.nsf for SSL connection)

2) Fill in the user name and password information.

3) If you have been assigned the Admin ACL role in OOO.nsf, you are allowed to configure and enable the Out of Office profile for other users and thus the "Select User" section will be available.

  • Input or select a user from the Domino Directory name picker.
  • Click Get Profile to retrieve their current Out of Office profile settings.

4) If it is successful, the Out of Office profile settings will be loaded from the server.

5) You can now set the Leaving and Returning dates and also customize the auto-response mail subject and body as needed.

6) Switch Enable to "ON" in order to turn on Out of Office notifications or select "OFF" to disable Out of Office notifications.

7) Click "Update" to save your changes back to the server.

Note:
1) The "Specify hours" option is disabled if the Domino server is running in Out of Office Agent mode. To use this feature, you must have the Domino server configured to use the Out of Office service instead.


ACL Security Settings

If you are the Manager of the OOO.nsf application, you can grant OOO Admin/SysAdmin rights to other people.



There are two roles that can be assigned:

RoleDescription
AdminWhen logged in via the Web App, individuals who have been assigned the Admin role, will have the option of selecting other people and setting up that person's Out of Office profile.

SysAdminWhen logged in via the Web App, individuals who have been assigned the
SysAdmin role, will have the ability to review the Out of Office Manager license information, by selecting the "License Info" link at the top right corner of the application.
http://hostname/ooo.nsf




or when they access the OOO servlet page
http://hostname/servlet/OOO



Regular end users who you want to login and enable their own personal Out of Office profile, should only have Reader access with Read/Write Public documents privilege in the database ACL and no roles should be assigned.

The Application owner should have Manager ACL access and also be assigned the SysAdmin & Admin role.

For Domino administrators or Helpdesk staff, they should only have Reader ACL access and be assigned the Admin role.
