Ability to enable/disable agents without changing signature

Currently if an agent is enabled/disabled, the signature of the agent changes.  If server security is set to only allow agents signed by certain ids to run and if an administrator or a user with Manager access disables an agent and then re-enables it the signatures changes and the agent can no longer run.

    I think this is already available. In Domino Designer help, notes agents have a security property called "Allow editor level user activation".

    Via code, you can check whether this setting is enabled or not by checking NotesAgent "IsActivatable".

    If "IsActivatable" is True, then user activation is in effect and using code you can set NotesAgent "IsEnabled" without changing the agent signature.

    Is this what you are looking for?

    Interesting idea. I gave it a quick try, but was disappointed to see that an agent's signature does change when a user runs the Lotusscript code that enables (or disables) the agent -- even when 'Allow editor level activation' is enabled for that agent.

    I just checked this (in Notes 9).  Although the "last modified" and "last modified by" columns change when a user enables/disables the agent, when I checked the $Signature field of the agent design element, the agent is still signed by the original signer ID (once I made sure the user only had editor access to the database!).

    Hope this helps.
