NetIQ Corporation strives to ensure our products provide quality solutions for your enterprise software needs. The following issues are currently being researched. If you need further assistance with any issue, please contact Technical Support.
If you access Identity Manager Home, the Identity Manager Provisioning Dashboard, or the Identity Manager Reporting Module using Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, and you set the Document Mode of the browser to Quirks Mode, Internet Explorer may not display those user interfaces correctly. For example, Internet Explorer may display a blank browser window, or may display specific styles incorrectly. This issue does not occur with the User Application user interface.
To access Identity Manager Home, the Provisioning Dashboard, or the Reporting Module, open Internet Explorer, click, click , and select mode. (851981)
After you install Identity Manager Home in your User Application environment, the User Application no longer warns users when their session expires, prompts users to extend their current session, or automatically redirects users to a “Session Timed-out” page, as configured in the Session Timeout Warning portlet.
Instead, when a user’s session expires, that user must log into the User Application the next time they click a link or perform any other action that calls the Roles Based Provisioning Module server. The Portlet Administration tab still displays the Session Timeout Warning portlet, but the User Application does not use the portlet.
This issue does not occur in a User Application environment where Identity Manager Home is not installed. (847900)
Identity Manager Home and the Identity Manager Provisioning Dashboard do not currently support Request or Approval provisioning request definitions and workflows that require digital signatures. If a user needs to request or approve a resource, and the form requires a digital signature, the user must use the User Application user interface to perform the action. (855367)
If you use the Provisioning Dashboard to request a resource associated with a valued entitlement, the value field does not filter entitlements based on what you enter. Instead, the value field displays all the possible values for the entitlement, regardless of what you enter in the field. (857911/857829
If you install and configure Identity Manager Home and the Provisioning Dashboard in your Identity Manager environment and then want to import your Identity Vault into a new Designer workspace or installation, you must manually install version 3.0.0 of the User Application driver in the new environment.
