Announcing the Domino REST API Beta Program  
Today, we’re announcing the start of the beta program for our new Domino REST API, formerly known as “Project Keep.” This is the latest addition to our ongoing Domino Early Access Program. The Domino REST API will introduce hundreds of new APIs that aperture to information on Domino — further extending access to your Domino data. It’s a modern take on the REST API for opening Domino access to a world of standards — and API-first developers. What is it?   Domino REST API is a new feature that runs alongside the server and allows you to expose your Domino data in the form of standardized Open-API-based methods securely and easily. Using a browser-based admin UI, application owners can define which data will be made available for view or update on a REST API. It extends the Domino principles of reader/author document access definitions into the world of Internet protocols.  It also includes Swagger UI which allows the visualization and interaction with APIs without having any of the actual implementation logic in place. The APIs are automatically generated from an OpenAPI (formerly Swagger) specification with visual documentation, making it easier to later implement the back-end code.  What is special about the new Domino REST APIs?  Secure by default, with fine granular controls per form, field and user basis  Implements latest open standards  HTTP/2-ready, for server-to-server or client-to-server communication API-first design with full interactive documentation  Low barrier to entry as it runs on a Domino server and/or your Notes client  Admin UI and Postman samples included  State-of-the-art JWT access token integrated with your existing IdP infrastructure What can be accessed via the Domino REST APIs? You can access content like views, documents, and fields, as well as database design, agents, and ACL settings. And, of course, featuring DQL queries to quickly access the data you are looking for.  Built-in declarative security ensures the API will only allow access to fields the caller is authorized to see or update. This can effectively prevent computed fields to be overwritten and limits participants in a workflow to update their fields only.   How to participate   The Domino REST API is now available as a...

Making a Smooth Upgrade to HCL Notes v12
The big day is coming soon! HCL Notes / Domino v12 will be launched  globally on June 7th (it’s already available for download on HCL FlexNet since May 27th). For those customers planning to upgrade, we have some great news. Whether you have been keeping pace with the rollouts of new HCL Notes client versions, or are WAY behind, there is a path for a seamless and smooth transition to v12. The MarvelClient Upgrade solution empowers organizations to optimize their HCL Notes client management and standardize all client versions with a consistent configuration during the automated upgrade process.  Common Upgrade Challenges What we have heard consistently from organizations around the world is that they want to reduce the complexity of their HCL Notes client installations and lessen the administration support tasks required. It is an ongoing challenge for IT support groups to keep pace with the upgrade cycles provided by their vendors. The following list is a showcase of some challenges that organizations face during an upgrade process:  Creation of Notes Client Install Package (with standard configurations)  Upgrade Package Deployment for Remote Users (with or without VPN)  Installation / Upgrade Process Execution Trigger for Automation  Migration of Notes Data Folder  Automated Upgrades for Different Deployment Models (Laptops, Desktops, Citrix, VDI, different OS versions, etc.)   The MarvelClient Upgrade solution handles all those requirements and more. The centralized tracking and reporting environment allows administrators to monitor the client deployments for all employees. And if any modifications are made through user error, they will be rectified and reset to the standard, supported settings on the next restart of the HCL Notes client. These automated, self-healing functions enable any organization to ensure a consistent environment for their users and reduce the number of IT support calls from HCL Notes client installation issues.  In addition, the MarvelClient Upgrade automates the entire process. This makes it easy to perform regular upgrades in the future as new software versions become available. If your organization is preparing to upgrade HCL Notes/Domino in the near future, please access this best practices list to avoid common project pitfalls.  Review of HCL Notes / Domino v12 We recently hosted a co-webinar with an expert from HCL on April...
