Getting the right value for the “permission” in an ACL

When dealing with ACL inside a policy in IDM, you must use a structured value made of the following:

  • protectedName = the property you want to grant right on (including [Entry Rights]);
  • trustee = the DN of the trustee;
  • privilege = the rights you are granting.

In the policy it reads like this:

<do-add-src-attr-value name="ACL">
 <arg-value type="structured">
  <arg-component name="protectedName">
   <token-text xml:space="preserve">[Entry Rights]</token-text>
  <arg-component name="trustee">
  <arg-component name="privileges">
   <token-text xml:space="preserve">1</token-text>

You can use the attached spreadsheet to compute the value of the privilege component of the ACL. Just put “"1"” (without quotes) in each right you want to grant, and put the displayed value in the privilege part of the ACL in the policy.
