Since July 2019, it has been HCL Digital Solutions’ mission to help our customers and business partners by introducing contemporary licensing and making license management easier for all our products.
Today, we are taking the next step towards consolidating all of our Domino licensing on a “per user” license model – the HCL Domino Complete Collaboration offering a.k.a “CCB.”
Effectively immediately, customers with HCL Domino Servers deployed under CCB Authorized User entitlements can be accessed by a Licensee’s entitled CCB Authorized Users and Guest Users.
A “Guest User” can be an anonymous web user (no authentication), or an authenticated web user with a predefined maximum level of Domino application access (ACL) as “Depositor.”
In addition, HCL Domino servers under CCB may participate in mail routing (SMTP), directory lookup and authentication (LDAP) for non-HCL Domino programs and permit access to free/busy time calendar information.
HCL made these changes to the CCB license based on customer requests to facilitate:
• A read-only external or internal web site for Guest Users
• Data collection using surveys generated by Domino Volt 1.0.1 and its anonymous user support available today.
• Removing the need for a separate Utility Server license for Guest Users with complex PVU reporting requirements.
• Clarifying licensing for mail and calendar interoperability in multi-vendor scenarios involving our partner’s solutions.
In August, HCL plans to update the formal License Information found here. In the meantime, you may refer to this blog or you can request a formal Product Notice for compliance.
If you have any questions about this announcement or have any licensing questions, please contact your HCL product specialist or Business Partner.
