Usually these are non-English (ASCII) characters, accents and diacritic marks. We live in an increasingly global environment. This often causes challenges in identity projects where one must synchronise identity data (names, locations) from a diversity of different…

Identity Manager has a really neat XML based language called DirXML Script. When you look at a policy in iManager or Designer, you see a GUI rendering of the underlying XML.

Thanks to the power and simplicity of DirXML-Script tokens in Identity Manager, one can implement even quite complex policies, whilst only rarely needing to dig directly into the underlying XML. This was not always the case, especially in the first few versions of Identity Manager, which relied on XPath and XSLT…
