IBM XPages on Bluemix: XPages NoSQL Database Part III - Connecting to the XPages NoSQL Database service from Domino Designer (2)

In my previous blog post, IBM XPages on Bluemix: XPages NoSQL Database Part II - Connecting to the XPages NoSQL Database service from Domino Designer (1), I showed how to connect to the XPages NoSQL Database service from Domino Designer (the Bluemix Part). In this blog post I will show how to create a connection document in the local IBM Notes client for the service-provided Domino server.

In the (Destination) Server name field, enter the name of the server from the XPages NoSQL Database Service Dashboard (use the data from blog post IBM XPages on Bluemix: XPages NoSQL Database Part II - Connecting to the XPages NoSQL Database service from Domino Designer (1).


5. Select the Advanced tab.
6. In the Destination server address field, enter the Domino IP Address.
Use the IP Address from the XPages NoSQL Database Service Dashboard.
