PlaceBots by their nature can present a security risk. Because a PlaceBot can affect the data contained in a place, managers and server administrators must monitor them carefully. Some administrators may choose to disable PlaceBot functionality.
To disable the user interface for creating, running and editing PlaceBots, and to disable existing form PlaceBots, perform the following steps:
- Log in to the server as an administrator.
- Click Site Administration.
- Click Other Options.
- Click Edit Options.
- Clear the option Enable Form PlaceBots.
- Click Next.
Disabling PlaceBots does not disable existing scheduled PlaceBots because these are controlled by the Domino Agent Manager. You must shut down the Lotus® Domino® Agent Manager to disable existing scheduled PlaceBots.
