xsp.domino.view.navigator=ByNoteId - does not work if data source is located on another Domino server


You might know that categorized Xpages views built (for example) via <xp:viewPanel> by default work slower than they actually could. IBM worked on this problem in past and since Domino R9.0.1 you could add a following line


into of your application and performance of categorized views would become much nicer.

This workaround always worked OK for me but it seems it does not work in case if your data source (f.x. back-end view) is on another server (tested with 9.0.1 FP9 HF139)

Here is a screen shot of a view before I click on any category

It works OK if data-source is in the same database or in another database on the same server.


  1. I'm sure you have checked this, but I've had similar problems when the target view does not allow anonymous or the authenticated person to see the documents in the view. Just like in the Notes client, you can see the categories in a view you don't have read access to the documents in that category.

  2. I'd also check out the 'trusted servers' list on the server docs. The is used to block or allow access to other servers.
