To continue the Academy’s momentum, we attended the Engage conference in Bruges, Belgium, and the DNUG conference in Konstanz, Germany, where we made some very key announcements that we think everyone needs to hear: 

  • The HCL Volt MX 5-day self-paced bootcamp is now available on the Academy website.  If you’re looking to get over 40 hours of education on this product, start here! 
  • 6 Digital Experience courses, spanning several learning journeys have been launched! 
  • 3 dynamic, hands on, 4-hour instructor-led workshops were delivered on the following topics: 
    • Deploying HCL Sametime v12 on Kubernetes
      In this workshop, we cover setting up your own Kubernetes cluster and deploying Sametime Premium from the ground up! Attendees even touched on network architecture, best practices, and troubleshooting. 
    • Deploying HCL Domino v12 on Kubernetes
      After attending this workshop, Domino administrators were more familiar with the most important and fundamental aspects of Kubernetes as well as setting up and installing Domino in a Kubernetes cluster. 
    • HCL Volt MX for Domino developers
      This session was specifically for Domino developers who wanted to extend their skills with HCL Volt MX. They learned to integrate HCL Volt MX with an existing Domino application to develop a mobile application from scratch!

Domino Document Deletion Logging: How to Solve for Missing Documents
As a Domino Administrator you might have been asked by your users, “Where is this specific email!?” It has been a long-standing issue with older versions of Domino when an important document goes missing in an application used by multiple users, with no way to identify who/what/when/how a certain document was deleted. Fear no more! Domino document deletion logging is now a feature that was made available starting from Domino v10. You now have the ability to explain what might happen to the document they are looking for.  So, how can you implement it? It’s as simple as running compact task on a database, literally! A new compact task option is available to enable logging of data about deleted documents in databases that you specify. Here are the key requirements for such feature.  Use Domino v10 and above. Have transaction logging enabled. Run compact task against the database that you want to monitor:   load compact <database path> -dl on "<comma separated list of items>"  where <database path> is a specific database or a directory of databases, relative to the data directory, for example, mail or discussion.nsf.   <comma separated list of items> is a list of fields to show in the logs to help you identify deleted documents. The fields must be one of these types: Text, Text_List, RFC822_Text, or Time. Suggested fields for mail documents are Subject, SendTo, From, and DeliveredDate. If you have custom fields on a document, you can use them as well.  The data is logged to a deletion log file called delete.log, which is located under the server Data directory, IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT folder. When documents are deleted from a database, entries are added to that file.  When the server is restarted, a new deletion log file is created. Old deletion log files are renamed to delete_<servername>_yyyy_mm_dd@hh_mm_ss.log; for example: delete_Server1\Renovations_2020_01_10@06_28_45.log  Deleting a document from a database adds an entry to the current deletion log file with the following data. This data is provided in a CSV-compatible format.  Data in deletion log entry ...

Before and After: How to Bring an Old Domino App into the Future
Do you have an old Domino app that just doesn’t look good or is clunky and old? Or one that you’re embarrassed to show new employees because it looks like it was built in the mid-1990s (and maybe it was)? With the newest version of Domino, it’s easy to modernize — and means you don’t have to contemplate migrating away from the platform, which can take years, have ballooning costs, and often doesn’t add new, better functionality or business value. We are hearing from customers that they are able to easily modernize old apps and bring their original investments into the future. The HCL Lab Services team recently modernized an old, internal issue-tracking app to show you what a modernized Domino app experience could be. It’s easy to give an app not only a better look and feel — a face lift — but also to make it easily work on mobile devices. This app has most of the features you’d typically find in an enterprise Domino app — workflow, access control, and security functionality. Accessed by thousands of employees every day to track business-critical businesses and approval systems, the app was designed to assist HCL in tracking issues found in various build systems, as well as assign and route those issues to key subject-matter experts.  But it wasn’t exactly pretty. Even though this was built in 2006 (14 years ago!) on Domino v7, it was a rock-solid app. Even though it was totally stable and reliable, it was ugly and awkward and, because it was used by so many people, it desperately needed to be modernized to today’s app standards. The Development process was as follows: We started designing what we wanted the app to look like and created a UI prototype using Adobe XD. To build the new...
