This topic explains how security and sharing with external data volumes (EDVs). EDVs can only be defined by Domino admins. Users can mount EDVs in their projects. Domino does not propagate the user’s identity down into the underlying network-attached file system.
When an admin defines an EDV in Domino, they can specify two important security settings:
Mount as read-only
Selecting this option means that users cannot modify the data in the EDV through Domino. This is the recommended setting in most cases.
This setting specifies which Domino users or groups are allowed to access the EDV. This can be everyone in the Domino deployment, or only specific users and organizations.
Only an admin can modify the Volume Access setting for an EDV. If an EDV is not available to all of the users who need to access it, contact your Domino admin.
To see whether an EDV is available to you, go to Data > External Data Volumes > Add External Volume in your project and check whether the EDV you need is listed.
