Domino Online Meeting Integration

Now that this has been announced publicly at NCUG, btw congrats Hogne for setting up a very useful event, I can talk about DOMI. Me and other Ambassadors have tested it in the last weeks but we were under NDA so we couldn’t share our thoughts.

My fellow Ambassador Cormac Mc Carthy has already done a post on this topic, so here I want to tell something about the configuration.

There is a difference between Sametime and the other online meeting providers you can use with DOMI, i.e. for Sametime you have to edit a Shared Library to tell the url of your Sametime server.

Fire up the Domino designer and open DOMI.nsf. Go into Code -> Script Libraries and edit domiConstantsBE

In there find the string g_DOMI_ROOTURL_SAMETIMEMEETINGS and put inside the two / the url of your sametime meeting server

That’s all. For the other online meeting providers there is nothing to configure, HCL did a wonderful job and everything works out of the box.

Now install DOMI on your mail template, to do so just open the DOMI database and click Install DOMI

Then upgrade the design of your mailfile with the updated template.

That’s it. 5 minutes max to do everything.

How do you use it ? First of all there is a thing to say. Each user must set up the integration using his credentials to get his own token from the providers, so this is not something you do once on the server for all the users. Every user has to create his own meeting credentials. Second important thing is that not all the providers accept free accounts: I set it up with Sametime, Teams and WebEx without problems, but for GoTo Meeting and Zoom you must have a paid account, else it will not work. Their decision, not HCL fault.

Open your mailfile and go in the Calendar. Click on “create” and you will see a new voice

You will see this form

Select you provider, in my example it is WebEx, and click on “Get OAuth Token”. You will be redirected to the provider site and once you authenticate you will see this page with the token. Simply click on the “Copy” button, you don’t have to write it down.

Note: If you use Sametime you will see a slightly different form

It does not use OAuth, but gets directly a token from the Sametime server.

Now go back in your Notes client and click the “paste” button in the Meeting Credentials form.


All of your tokens and credentials can be seen in the “Online Meeting Credentials” view

Now you can schedule, and modify and delete, online meetings with the provider of your choice from the Notes client.

    Hello Roberto, where could I get the DOMI-Installation? Could you provide it for testing, I work for a HCL business partner in Germany

    • At the moment is not yet available, only HCL Ambassadors can have it for testing. It should be released in a few days for general availability

  2. Roberto, is there any update yet on the general availability of DOMI?
