HCL Domino Online Meeting Integration available

Wow this is great news! And this is the first time HCL publishes something like this on GitHub as open source.
The Domino meeting integration for the following providers is planned to be in 12.0.1. But if you are on 11.0.1 FP3 clients, you can start using it today!
  • Zoom
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Webex
  • GoToMeeting
  • HCL Sametime
There is a way to customize your standard templates and there is a small web server you have to run for the integration thru a Notes database.
And the server component can be used for example as a Docker container. I have quickly started it today during the DNUG conference meeting when we got the news that's available.
I have not looked into the template side yet. Just wanted to get out this great news ..

The best starting point for the documentation is here --> https://opensource.hcltechsw.com/domino-online-meeting-integration/
And the GitHub repository for this project is here --> https://github.com/HCL-TECH-SOFTWARE/domino-online-meeting-integration

Hallo

Ist es normal das der Teams Link zweimal im Meeting zu sehen ist?

Also einmal unter Ort und einmal unter "online Besprechung - URL".

Sonst tolle sache, aber ich fände es gut wenn es einen weiteren Kalendertyp "Teams Meeting" gibt, statt dieses Buttons.

@Leon,

I haven't used it on my own yet. But great that it works for you.

If you post your replies in English the chance is higher that someone picks up your question ;-)

Without nowing all the details about the fields .. keep in mind that a project like this cannot change anything in the current fields used or calendar types.

It has to stay in the same way Notes handles meetings.

Different devices and target environments might see different fields. so it might be intention to add it to both.

@Leon - If you have Notes developer skills, you can customize the modifications made to the mail template and change the enduser experience. However, i would advise to stay within the current logic of "meetings" in Domino Calendaring&Scheduling that can optionally have an online meeting attached and not "invent" a new calendar entry type for this of integration. As Daniel pointed out, you otherwise run into the risk of breaking things, especially when it comes to interoperability with other non-Notes calendar applications.

Is there anything more than just placing a copy of Domi.nsf on the domino server and signing it with the a template signing ID. I am having issues updating or deleting meeting with WebEx using an 11 mail template with an 11.0.1 FP3 client. I see that you mention something about a small web application but I see no mention of it in the documentation as a pre-req.

The message I get for attempting to Update or delete is "No Service is Configured for"

Am I missing something. Creating the meeting in Webex works great just nothing else...

Needs a small web application that doesn't run on Domino? WTF?

@Jason

Please take a look at the documentation Overview > Architecture.

Quote: "DOMI comprises two elements:

- A Vert.x web application which performs the OAuth dance with the online meeting provider services.

- An HCL Notes installation database ...."

So yes, you're probably missing the web application.

@Jan: Yes, but for the out-of-the-box integrations (Zoom, Teams, etc.) that web application is being hosted by HCL.

My understanding is that, for most scenarios, you only need to worry about the web application if you need to customize the integrations.
