Decide whether users will authenticate anonymously or be required to use name-and-password authentication and whether to limit who can create places individually or by group.
By default, users can connect to a Lotus® Quickr™ server anonymously or through basic name-and-password authentication. Server access is controlled through the Ports
-> Internet Ports
tab in the Server document in the Domino Directory.
By default, any user who can connect to the server can create places. The local Lotus Quickr administrator, created at the end of Lotus Quickr installation, can use the Site Administration
link on the home page to limit the ability to create places to specific authenticated users or groups. The local administrator can also designate additional administrators, who then have the ability to create and delete places, use the Site Administration
link, and create and delete PlaceTypes.
Users who create places have "owner" access to their places, meaning they can see and edit all place content, as well as control all access to place content. The available places access levels are: Author, Reader, Editor, Manager, and Owner. An administrator can use the qpconfig.xml file to specify the name of a user or group in a user directory with owner access to all places on the server.
If you want to use Lotus Sametime® integration features, or to use My Places
-> Show Usage Statistics
to run qptool
commands on places, you must configure the server to use single sign-on authentication.
