This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Adding New Functions to the UA Bash extension

When last we left off, you should have gotten the RBPM script, gotten the WSDL you are interested in, opened it in SOAP UI and copied out the text of the function you care about.

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Adding New Functions to the UA Bash extension

Fernando Freitas of NTS fame wrote a great shell script extension to support the RBPM SOAP functions. The problem is he only implemented the Role service WSDL functions and there are many more in User App that might be needed. Specifically I need the createResource function from the Resource service WSDL. So how to extend it? Read this series, and continue on as I work through that process.

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Walking through the Multi-Domain Active Directory Driver

The new Multi Domain Active Directory driver is a clever new approach to drivers in general yet reusing the hard work and maturity developed in the classic Active Directory driver. In part 1 of this series I discussed the driver creation method, since this time it matters how you do it.

I was working with a customer on an upgrade to IDM 4.5.2 and switching from JBoss to clustered Tomcat. I must say, the 4.5 install process is much better than in 4.02, which is always nice to see. We got OSP doing SAML federation to NAM, and then behind a NAM reverse proxy, and it…

With IDM 4.0, NetIQ introduced the Reporting module. This is something we have wanted for a long time, the ability to generate reports on IDM related stuff. What stuff is that? Well that depends, and is probably the topic for a series of articles about Reporting. However, to set some basic understanding, let me try…
