How to find your version number

The template version of your SecurityInsider database can be found by clicking the "About" link at the bottom right corner, when the database is open in the IBM Notes client. The code version of your SecurityInsider database can be found by looking at the beginning of the most recent log document in the Processing Logs view.

Template Version: 20230207171000

Code Version:  3.0.13

Release Date:  2023-02-07


  • Online Update now supports 64-bit Notes clients on Windows.
  • New languages available: ES, FR, IT, NL, JP, RU (NOTE: after updating to this release, you will need to close and reopen the database in order to see the new language selections on the Online Update form)
  • Fixed a problem where opening a Change Map or a Change Backup on a Notes 12.0.x client would not work, and would sometimes display the error "SyntaxError: expected expression, got '<'"

Template Version: 20211004093700

Code Version:  3.0.13

Release Date:  2021-10-04


  • Fixed a NullPointerException that could occur if a Catalog database document is not valid.

Template Version: 20210621092500

Code Version:  3.0.12

Release Date:  2021-06-21


  • Updated navigator look and feel to match the MarvelClient templates. This also fixes potential scrolling issues with specific versions of the Notes client.
  • New button at the top of the navigator, to easily open recently used views.
  • New option on the Configuration document to treat groups and subgroups as Endpoints. This will create an Endpoint document for every group, including each group's database access and all the groups it is a subgroup of. This option is turned off by default because it increases runtime, memory usage, and database size.
  • Fix for a problem where a corrupted ACL in a scanned database can cause an Out Of Memory error in the SecurityInsider agent.
  • Fix for a problem where subgroups could sometimes appear as type "Person" on group documents. This was a display issue, not a data problem (a rescan is not necessary).
  • If errors occur when the SecurityInsider agent runs, a summary of the first 5 errors is now included in the notification email sent to the admin.
  • If the SecurityInsider license has expired and it is not configured to fall back to a Light license, a notification email will now be sent to the admin (previously the agent would exit early with no notification).

Template Version: 20201023142600

Code Version:  3.0.10

Release Date:  2020-10-23


  • New "Cleanup" option in the Maintenance section of the navigator. You can use this to remove or archive documents related to servers that no longer exist in your environment. This helps keep the database smaller and easier to use.
  • Fixed a problem where the Online Update form might not open properly the first time you use it after a new install.
  • Fixed a problem where the navigator would scroll to the top on newer Notes clients, when expanding or collapsing navigator sections.

Code Version: 3.0.7

Release Date: 2018-05-07


  • Fixed Online Update for customers who don’t have MC licensed
  • Fixed a problem where database docs were logging that the database type and template fields changed every time a change backup was created

Template Version: 20180328084800

Code Version: 3.0.6

Release Date: 2018-03-28

  • Speed and performance enhancements for directories with 100k+ users.
  • Added server name to all document nodes in the changeData XML for better parsing and readability.
  • Fixed a problem where very large change log fields on backup documents could be empty (change log XML still contained full data). Change log info in backup documents is now split across multiple fields when it gets too big.
  • Fixed a problem where wildcard groups would contain duplicate names if the same user was in both the primary and the secondary directory.
  • Fixed an error parsing licenses for customers who use country codes in their hierarchical names.

Template Version: 20171219091900

Code Version: 3.0.5

Release Date: 2017-12-19


  • New “Change Backups by Name” view, to make it easy to find all the changes for a specific user/group/database.
  • New views for MC Automate to display databases by category and by template, and a “Categorize” button was added to several database views to add custom categories.
  • New “Explicit Unknown” section on database XPage.
  • New “Original ACL” tab on database XPage.
  • No-access users are now displayed in the database member list.
  • Fixed a problem where the deleted database/group/endpoint document count was always displayed as 0 in the log, even when deletions occurred.
  • Fixed a problem where duplicate docs could be created if the server doesn’t have proper ACL roles assigned. Also added more explicit warnings in the log about this condition, and we now automatically delete any duplicates we find.
  • Improve runtime speed when extra logging is enabled.
  • Fixed a problem where mail aliases were being displayed as “unknown” in server groups, instead of “mail-only”.
  • Fixed a problem where change backups were not created if XML change logging was disabled (disabling XML change logging is not recommended if you want to track changes, but it’s possible).

Template Version: 20171002085800

Code Version: 3.0.4

Release Date: 2017-10-02


  • Added a column in the ACL table to list the actions each user has in a database (create documents, delete documents, etc.).
  • Reduced the font size for XPages when displayed on certain Windows resolutions.
  • Fixed a problem where explicit unknown ACL groups were displayed as members of themselves instead of <named directly>.
  • Fixed a problem where the primary directory database reference could get recycled if it was also specified as the secondary directory.

Template Version: 20170912083300

  • New change backup chart summarizes the number of change backups that were made for each document type (group, database, endpoint) in the past 4 months.
  • Fixed a problem with license counts when the database has duplicate docs.
  • Fixed problem where if a person was a member of an ACL via multiple groups, only the first group link on the XPage would work.

  • Fixed an error that occurred if a group in the Domino Directory had no name.

Template Version: 20170614094700

Code Version: 3.0.0

Release Date:  2017-06-14

First release of SecurityInsider. Previous versions of this product were called GroupExplorer. The final version of GroupExplorer was template 20170404163200, JAR file

New Features

  • Change logging. Changes to group, database, or endpoint documents can now be saved as backup copies of the document, or logged to an XML file, or both. This can be controlled in the Configuration document.
  • There is now a set of default charts, giving you a summary of certain information in the SecurityInsider database. These are available by clicking the “Charts” link at the top of the left hand navigator.
  • Java applets have been replaced by XPages. Information on the group, database, and endpoint documents is now displayed using an XPage embedded in the Notes client.
  • Group names, database names, and user names on the XPages are hyperlinks that can be clicked in order to open the group, database, or endpoint that is associated with the name.
  • Circular references in groups are now detected and displayed on the group documents where they occur.
  • New option in the configuration document to use the catalog database to perform database scans, instead of accessing the databases directly. This can eliminate error notifications on the server console if the SecurityInsider database doesn’t have access to all databases, and also provide information about databases that the SecurityInsider database doesn’t have access to.
  • If there are specific databases you don’t want to scan with SecurityInsider, you can now use database filters on the Configuration document to exclude these databases from a scan.
  • The Configuration document also has an option to disable the SecurityInsider agent, so it won’t run on one or more servers.
  • The SecurityInsider code that performs the scan of directories and databases has been completely rewritten to make it faster and use less memory.
