In part one of this series, I discussed some of the basic types of GCV’s, (string, integer, real, boolean, DN, and password-ref) and there are still three types left to discuss. The remaining three are List, Enum, and Structured. Finally some details about the header and group options as well.
If you have used Novell Identity Manager much, you probably have run across Global Configuration Values. I mention GCVs in many of my other articles in passing, and they are great. I thought an article dedicated to the fun things you can do with GCVs would be appropriate and entertaining.
