The createViewNavFromCategory method in the NotesView class has the following bug:
if the user has no rights to read all documents in the category you specified,
this method does NOT return an empty view navigator but a navigator FOR ALL SUBSEQUENT CATEGORIES IN THE VIEW.
You have a categorized view by company names.
Some documents in this view has a reader field, and you are not authorized to see the documents in the category "ITWU".
The view will look like this:
Now, you write the following Java code:
Database db = DominoUtils.getCurrentDatabase();
View view = db.getView("myview");
ViewNavigator nav = view.createViewNavFromCategory( "ITWU" );
You probably suppose to get an empty view navigator but that's where you are wrong;
the view navigator is for all entries in the categories Microsoft and SAP
This phenomenon does not happen in the getAllEntriesByKey method.
Check the first entry in the view navigator again if you have the correct category.
Attention: if the column is a multi-value field, you have to check it too.
ViewEntry entry = nav.getFirst();
if( entry != null )
if( !"ITWU".equals( entry.getColumnValues().get(0).toString() ) )
