In IDM UserApp, I need to convert an attribute value saved in eDirectory as “milliseconds from 1970″ to a readable date format.


Add the following code for reading the attribute into the form:

d=new Date();
d.setTime(IDVault.get(recipient,'user','endDate') *1000);

Note that the Attribute end date must be added to the Directory Abstraction Layer.
