For attributes to flow from a connected directory into the Metaverse, the attributes must be defined and configured with certain attribute flow rules.


The Notes Management Agent (MA) is already configured to cause the Lotus Notes SMTP mail address attribute to flow. The Notes Person record contains a field called ShortName, which holds the part of the SMTP address needed to send Notes mail. This is the short name for the full SMTP address (consisting of the name before the @ character). Because in most environments the full SMTP name is required, the ShortName field may have to be put in the proper format.

You can use the following assignment in the process of assigning the ShortName attribute to the Mail attribute in the Metadirectory:

  1. Click the Lotus Notes MA.
  2. In the Action panel, click Attribute Flow.
  3. Click the Advanced Flow Script tab.
  4. Type the following flow rule

    $md.mail = ($cd.zcNotesShortName)

    where domain is the appropriate domain name.

  5. Click OK.
