Scripts

Fernando Freitas wrote an awesome script that makes the User Application web service endpoint for Roles available as shell commands in bash. This is much more useful than you would think at first. After all, we can do them in a GUI, in SOAP UI, or other SOAP tools, what does bash give us? Well…

When last we left off, you should have gotten the RBPM script, gotten the WSDL you are interested in, opened it in SOAP UI and copied out the text of the function you care about. Then we worked through the parts of the function in the WSDL that we probably need to specify information about. To keep it clear in our minds, our example is createResource…

This entry is part 2 of 3 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.

When a row in a table is deleted or updated, it is only marked as such and the physical disk space is not tagged…
