I’ve implemented a number of PRD’s that allow an admin to modify attributes on a User, or other object, to facilitate provisioning. The motivation to write this arose mostly out of the difficulties in setting/displaying a Boolean, and in “deselecting” a pick list. Enjoy.

Finding all the steps to create and maintain a UserApp/RBPM custom theme (or themes) took me a while. I thought that if I could save even one other person the pain of digging up all of the steps, then writing a Cool Solution would be worthwhile. I hope this helps make your life a little easier.

Want to cut to the chase on clustering Jboss for Novell UserApp? These details function with UA 3.6.1 and 3.5.1, and I don’t know that the version matters, since these are JBOSS clustering instructions.

A recent post on the Novell forums made me realize I should share this information more widely. Although I could have written copious details, anecdotes and technical historical asides, I wasn’t shooting for a Carmanesque document. (Love Ya Jeff; gotta tease!)
Having poked Jeff, I now only hope that my content is accurate and I won’t be raked over the coals by him. :-) (I also hope reward points are calculated on tip value, not on word count. )

Shocked at finding my RBS Roles were assigning supervisor rights to users, I set out to resolve the problem. Lothar Haegar recommended I write up the results, as the question is asked frequently: Why do I need to be a Supervisor of the tree to check Password Status?
