Identity Manager

This entry is part 2 of 2 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.

We experienced two issues with User Application v4.5 running on Tomcat. The first issue has been mentioned quite a few times on the forums and ncisrael provided a fix for.

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…

NetIQ Validator comes with launch scripts for all supported platforms (Linux/Mac/Windows) but those are console mode shell scripts and offer not much comfort. A while ago when I was still using a Windows laptop as my main workhorse, I wrote a little tool to quickly launch NetIQ Validator from a task bar icon instead. Since I moved on to a MacBook in the mean time and Validator runs on OS-X just fine, I jumped at the opportunity to try out Apple’s new programming language Swift and wrote a native Mac version over the summer…
