You’ve followed all the best practices and documentation. Your eDirectory trees are healthy and replicating with no errors. Time is in synchronization and ndsrepair shows no errors or external references hanging out there.

So, what do you do when eDirectory gets a request to remove 20,000 members from a group and replicates the change to all of the replicas?

In a recent Identity Management project I found myself reading information from an HR system via JDBC, then needing to write it into the Identity Vault. From there it would disperse to other systems, one of which was GroupWise.

The HR system stored all information in a capitalised fashion. It’s quite obviously undesirable for all entries in a GroupWise address book to be capitalised, so I needed to transform the data. Read on to see how the data transformation was done.

Once you have the IDM product up and running, you’re always looking for ways to simplify and automate various maintenance tasks.
