Identity Manager 4.7.3 and 4.8.x offers automatic provisioning and synchronization of users to cloud applications. The new Workday driver for Identity Manager can seamlessly provision users from the Workday cloud application, keeping the user identity information consistent across the Identity Vault (IDV) and can also update few of the connected system attributes.

The driver version will change to after applying this patch.

System Requirements

Identity Manager 4.7.3 or later

Identity Manager 4.8.x or later

Upgrading the Driver

The driver upgrade process involves the following tasks:

Upgrading the Driver Packages

Updating the Driver Files.
  1. Take a back-up of the current driver configuration.

  2. (Conditional) If the driver is running locally, stop the driver instance and the Identity Vault.

  3. (Conditional) If the driver is running with a Remote Loader instance, stop the driver and the Remote Loader instance.

  4. Download and unzip the contents of the IDM_WorkDayDriver_1220.zip file to a temporary location on your computer.

  5. (Conditional) To update the driver files as a root user:

    1. On the server where you want to apply the driver patch, log in as root/administrator.

    2. Navigate to the extracted IDM_WorkDayDriver_1220.zip directory and perform one of the following actions for your platform:

  6. (Conditional) To update the driver files as a non-root user:

    1. Verify that non-root edirectory="" location=""/rpm directory exists and contains _db.* file.
    2. The _db.* file is created during a non-root installation of the Identity Manager engine. Absence of this file might indicate that Identity Manager is not properly installed. Reinstall Identity Manager to correctly place the file in the directory.

    3. To set the root directory to the location of non-root Identity Vault, enter the following command in the command prompt:
    4. ROOTDIR=<non-root eDirectory location>

      This will set the environmental variables to the directory where Identity Vault is installed as a non-root user.

    5. To install the driver files, enter the following command:
    6. For example, to install the Workday driver RPM, use this command:

      rpm --dbpath $ROOTDIR/rpm -Uvh --relocate=/usr=$ROOTDIR/opt/novell/eDirectory --relocate=/etc=$ROOTDIR/etc --relocate=/opt/novell/eDirectory=$ROOTDIR/opt/novell/eDirectory --relocate=/opt/novell/dirxml=$ROOTDIR/opt/novell/dirxml --relocate=/var=$ROOTDIR/var --badreloc --nodeps --replacefiles /home/user/novell-DXMLWday.rpm

      where /opt/novell/eDirectory is the location where non-root eDirectory is installed and /home/user/ is the home directory of the non-root user.

  7. (Conditional) If the driver is running locally, start the Identity Vault and the driver instance.

  8. (Conditional) If the driver is running with a Remote Loader instance, start the Remote Loader instance and the driver instance.

Extending the Schema

As part of solution, we need to extend the schema of eDirectory so that the Workday driver can create these additional objects in the IDV. The proposed schema extension in ldif and sch formats are available for download. The schema file should only be extended with the ndssch utility. Using any other method for importing the schema file fails for certain attributes. A sample syntax for importing the schema file has been provided below:

/opt/novell/eDirectory/bin/ndssch -h idv.server.DNS.name -F /tmp/wd-schema.logadmin.services.data /tmp/wd-schema.sch

The wd-schema.sch file will be available in WorkDayDriver\schema folder.
