An object’s visibility determines which post office databases the object’s information is distributed to. A post office’s users can only see an object’s information in the Address Book if the object’s information has been distributed to its post office.
Visibility applies to the following objects: user, external user, external entity, resource, external resource, distribution list, eDirectory group, eDirectory organizational role, and nickname.
IMPORTANT:Unlike the other objects listed above, nicknames that have been distributed to a post office do not actually appear in the post office’s Address Book. Users must type the nickname’s address in the message rather than select it from the Address Book.
You can choose from the following visibility levels:
System: The object is visible in every post office Address Book throughout the system; if external system synchronization is turned on, it is also available for distribution to other GroupWise systems. This is the default for users, external users, resources, external resources, external entities, and nicknames.
Domain: The object is visible only in the Address Book of the post offices located in the object’s domain.
Post Office: The object is visible only in the Address Book of the object’s post office. This is the default for distribution lists, groups, and organizational roles.
None: The object is not visible in the Address Book of any post offices.
