User Application

We experienced two issues with User Application v4.5 running on Tomcat. The first issue has been mentioned quite a few times on the forums and ncisrael provided a fix for.

With IDM, permissions are defined using entitlements and assigned via resources, when you follow RBAC. However in the real world sometimes you cannot map everything with a Role and some entitlements have to be assigned manually on a…

Recently I had occasion to spend a lot of time digging into the SSO (Single Sign On) configuration for User Application. As it happened, I was starting with the IDM 4.5 version of the User Application, which uses the NetIQ OSP (One SSO Provider) framework. This opens an entire other can of worms, since OSP…

You can use the IDM “Resource Request Portlets” to add your custom workflow request definitions as new navigation items in the main UserApp menu. The result would allow quick access to any custom workflows directly from the left navigation menu.   The example shows a custom workflow “Clearing Process” link in the “Information Management” menu…

Some IDM users who have created their own forms have asked how to change or remove the standard header that shows at the top of each Process Request form frame.

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.
