Notes Security Alert

I have a form with one rich text field in it and I set the auto-launch to launch first attachment when opened.

 

When I open a document, I receive Execution Security Alert.

Program signed by -No Signature

On -not known-

Is attempting Access to file system, Access to external programs

With the action Auto Launch Attachment (file name)

 

My administrator won't let me instruct the user to start trusting the signer to execute this action..

 

So I can't really ever use this nice feature of auto-launch..

 

Anyway to sign it so this error doesn't appear.

 

Thanks in advance

Sign db code

Sign the database and all design elements with a notes id that is in the ecl

 

Here is some ls code that signs the db.   Change the db.open to the correct server/file name

 

 Sub Initialize
 Dim session As New Notessession
 Dim db As Notesdatabase
 Call db.Open([server], [path]) 
 Call db.sign(DBSIGN_DOC_ALL)
End Sub

It turned out the document wasn't signed

I had to sign the document. All of the design elements were signed with my developer id that is in the ecl.

But documents were  not signed. I had that sign option on the form set, but then signs it with the person's id who created it.

I put on the close to run an agent that runs on server with the permission of my developer id to sign the document.

 

Then the error went away.

Signing documents

I would recommend that you create an agent to sign documents so that if a signer leaves the company, you will not run into problems after the users informaion is removed from the address book.

Sining the doc won't help

I have the same behaviour with an application wich stores Word document as OLE object in a rich text item on a notes document.

The ECL alert you are receiving comes with the fact that an external application is trying to do something with your database.

I have signed all documents (I mean the Notes documents) but it does not change anything.

I do not have any other solution to let users to choose to trust this unknown user to do something. In a matter of facts, I do not have anything to prevent them doing this...

And everytime the ECL is changed, they have to do it again.

Hope to find something better. One day...
