Today I created a new project on OpenNTF called ‘DB Manager Notifier‘. The application is a tool that can send periodically notifications to persons who are listed as Manager in an Application document in the catalog.nsf on your IBM Domino server.
A typical use case is a Development or Sandbox environment where users are free to install new applications. In such loosely managed environments people tend to “forget” their applications and leave them installed on the server.
The application contains an agent which you can set to scheduled e.g. monthly. The memo contains a default message and an overview of the applications the recipient is listed as Manager, including a doc-link to the catalog document and a link to the application. From there the recipient can decide what to do with their application(s).
The idea behind this app is not to increase the amount of mail people receive but receiving a summary of your applications with links can saves you time doing your application maintenance and may reduce the used amount of disc-space on the server.
