IBM XPages on Bluemix: Deploy changes to the Bluemix environment via Domino Designer Part II

In my previous blog post, IBM XPages on Bluemix: Deploy changes to the Bluemix environment via Domino Designer, I described how to deploy changes to the Bluemix environment using Domino Designer. I forgot one important aspect in this blog post, the ID to use for access and edit the data NSF in Domino Designer, the IBM XPages ToDo Design Application. I've received some questions about this after I published the blog post. In this blog post I will show you where the ID can be found in Bluemix and how it should be used.

ID to Access and Edit the data NSF in Domino Designer
After logging in in Bluemix go to the Dashboard. Click the option Services (1) in the left menu . The option Demo-XPagesData displays.


Select this option. The IBM XPages NoSQL Database Service page will open. Select the Launch button in the upper right corner. The IBM XPages NoSQL Database Service Dashboard will open. In the Organization Detail you can find the ID that must be downloaded.


Domino Desginer
After the ID file has been downloaded it can be used in the Domino Designer. With this ID you can access / edit the data NSF (the IBM XPages ToDo Design Application).
In the Domino Designer select Security from the File Menu and select the option Switch ID. Then select the downloaded ID file. You also need the corresponding password (click on the button show as shown in picture above).
Next create a small change in the XPages database and deploy the change to the Bluemix environment.


The downloaded ID file is now being used for the change in the DDE (see the image above). The change will now be deployed without any problem to the Bluemix environment.
