The left-hand panel on the main screen is calledDatabases, and from here you use checkboxes to select the databases you'd like to work with. Once a selection is made, the selected databases will be listed in theGridpane on the upper right-hand side of agentEZ. You'll find theOutputpanel on the lower right-hand side of agentEZ, this is used to display logged information such as errors.

Force Designer Access to Edit Agents/Use Notes API Security: Our testing found that certain versions of the Notes API (up to ND R7) allow users to edit agents in cases where their Access Level should prevent them from doing so (i.e. the user is not a Designer or Manager). This can sometimes unexpectedly cause agents not to run. TheForce Designer Access to Edit Agentsoption makes agentEZ strictly adhere to Notes security and prevents non-designers and non-managers from editing agents. Starting with IBM Lotus Notes and Domino R8, the Notes API will no longer allow non-designers to edit agents.
Full Access Administration: This enables 'Full Access Adminstration' in agentEZ.
