Sometimes you may want to start a workflow, but delay specific parts of the workflow for a set time.

A user activity might rely on other activities which may not complete immediately; changes in one system might need to synchronize with other systems before the next activity can take place.

A typical case is the “user move” action that needs to be completed and synchronized to all replicas before further actions are accepted.

While such delays could be implemented with IDM drivers, it may often be much more flexible, easier and a matter of minutes to add such delays in the workflow itself.

Sometimes you may want to start a workflow, but delay specific parts of the workflow until a specified date or time has come: A new user might need to be created at a certain date, a workflow action should be performed at midnight, an object needs to be created at one time and be deleted some time later.

While all of these actions could be performed by IDM drivers, it may often be more flexible, easier and a matter of minutes to add such delays in the workflow itself.

Designer provides basic support for moving Identity Manager projects from one stage to another.
An administrator can now store additional objects in the LDIF format, even those that are not modeled in Designer.
These objects can be edited by using a text editor, exported to an LDIF file, and deployed back to the Identity Vault in the subsequent stage.

Watch this demo for more information.

Structured global configuration values allow you to place GCVs into a group. You do this by creating a template containing the GCVs that you want in the group, along with their default values. Then, you can create instances of the template with the click of a button. Designer 3.5 supports adding, editing, and displaying Structured Configuration Values in the Driver and Driver Set GCV Preference pages. The Structured Configuration Values can also be used on the Shim Parameters and the Job Parameters pages. Watch this demo for more information.

Designer offers the functionality of storing additional objects that are not modeled in it. These objects are stored in an LDIF container under the Identity Vault. By default, there is no LDIF container. An LDIF container is created when Import Additional Objects or Import Objects from LDIF File into LDIF Container option is selected.

By default, the LDIF container object opens in a text editor. You can use the Apache Directory Studio LDIF Editor to edit the LDIF files in Designer by following the steps given in this cool solution. It can handle LDIF content files as well as the LDIF changetype files. Files with *.ldif appendix are automatically handled by the LDIF Editor.
