IBM Docs entitlement – Limit access to IBM Docs in a IBM Connections environment

An IBM Docs question that comes up a lot is:  Is it possible to limit people accessing IBM Docs?  Meaning: If I have 10000 users in IBM Connections – can I roll out IBM Docs in a first step to a subset of 2500?

The answer is: Yes, that is possible. It’s call IBM Docs entitlement and can be easily set in the WebSphere Application Server WebConsole.  In the IBM Docs Wiki is documented how (in this case for Version 1.0.5 for IBM Docs):  http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/docswiki.nsf/xpDocViewer.xsp?lookupName=Installing+and+deploying+IBM+Docs+1.0.5+documentation#action=openDocument&res_title=Enabling_IBM_Docs_entitlement_id105&content=pdcontent
