Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Automated Deployment (DevOps) tools for Domino

DevOps is a leading, important topic in IT. Domino is a little bit outside of this area. Please add support for DevOps tools to better fit Domino in today's IT Environments.

 

As UrbanCode is also a in HCL support they should wort together.

UrbanCode (and/or other deployment tools) should support Domino server!

 

eg:

UCD Domino Agent:
    - using the Domino Extension Manager (EXTMGR_ADDINS=buzagent.dll)
    - using a UCD database and Agents (here users can develop their own agents and run, like groovy scripts)

Domino Plugin steps

    - Copy Artifacts (copy / FTP from SCM or template server)
    - Copy a template (Deploy step) to the server (.ntf on the server from code repository)
    - Create Database from a template (template could be on the server or in CodeStation or any SCM)
    - Set Database Properties (eg Title, encryption, LZ1, etc)
    - Sign Database (with server or any ID)
    - Create Entries in ACL (from a list like: entry, type, level, properties)
    - Create ACL Groups (GroupName, Member List)
    - Create/Edit Profile document (Form, UserName as a property, ad from a list like: fieldName-value,value,value...)
    - Create Document (Form, ad from a list like: fieldName-value,value,value...)
    - Enable Scheduled Agent (with schedule parameters)
    - Run Agent in a Database
    - Create New Replica (target server name(s), wait until finishes)
    - Create New Copy ((target server name, wait until finishes))
    - Replicate database (with servers, options,  wait until finishes)
    - Compact, fuxup, updall, catalog...etc commands
    - notes.ini manupulation
    - Server configuration step(s) to update Server Document or others
    - User Registration

Hope you like it!

    Excellent!! 

    I use Ansible and start to create some playbooks to deploy Domino (install, install FP and install HF), but some features live above, get Version are undocumented, command line tools to change configuration.
