RIS.war REST endpoint problems


I'm having a strange problem using the RIS.war REST services. I've
configured the RIS.war and essentially the implementation is working:

A GET call to http://userappserver.domain.com:8180/RIS/identities
returns a list of users with attributes:

(copied one entry of the entire list)


Code:
--------------------

{
"Managers": [],
"Groups": [],
"Links": [
{
"Link": "/RIS/wf/workitems?filter=Addressee=cn=abcd1234,ou=Active,ou=Identities,ou=Internal,o=Company",
"Type": "wf/workitems",
"Value": "Workflow Workitems"
}
],
"GUID": "8679b04e984e064bdaa68679b04e984e",
"Link": "/RIS/identities/8679b04e984e064bdaa68679b04e984e",
"DN": "cn=abcd1234,ou=Active,ou=Identities,ou=Internal,o=Company",
"FirstName": [
"Some"
],
"LastName": [
"Name"
],
<omitted photo tag>
"Title": [],
"TelephoneNumber": [],
"Department": [],
"Location": [],
"Email": []
}

--------------------


This seems correct but the strange thing is, is that the TelephoneNumber
and Email attributes stay empty even if they are populated with values
in eDir.

However:
Using a GET to get the Email address attribute works like a charm.

Code:
--------------------

{
"GUID": "8679b04e984e064bdaa68679b04e984e",
"DN": "cn=abcd1234,ou=Active,ou=Identities,ou=Internal,o=Company",
"Link": "/RIS/identities/8679b04e984e064bdaa68679b04e984e",
"Email": [
"some-mail@maildomain.com"
]
}

--------------------


Does anybody know why the identities list does not display the Email
Address while the specific query does return a value ?

A second question: according to the documentation, the following URL
should display all user attributes configured in the DAL:

http://tinyurl.com/obn3qqt

But this returns an error:


Code:
--------------------

{
"Code": {
"Value": "Sender",
"Subcode": {
"Value": "InvalidUri"
}
},
"Reason": {
"Text": "Not found"
}
}

--------------------


Userapp is on patch E (including the RIS.war). Any ideas on both
problems ?

    Greetings,

    Your question number #1 is working as designed. The generic an identity
    will only return a few attributes. It will not return email or
    telephone. You have to ask for those attributes specifically.

    As for your second question I will look.

    Greetings,
    I have tested with the latest patch of 4.0.2 and it is working correctly

    1) My URL is similar to:

    http://myserver.com:8180/RIS/identities/c8a464fc197e7d414b99c8a464fc197e

    2) Make sure the Entry in the RIS.war has the full DNS of where UserApp is


    We had a similar bug that was fixed in Patch "D"
    Bug 785952 - REST: Requesting details of a specific Resource fails with
    error

    But that was for a Resource and not for an Identity.


    3) Do you experience this issue for all Users or just certain ones?

  • This is my web.xml from the RIS.war


    Code:
    --------------------

    <init-param>
    <param-name>USER_APP_URL</param-name>
    <param-value>server.infra.company.com:8180/.../param-value>
    </init-param>

    --------------------


    So this should work. When i do a query for all identities:

    http://server.infra.company.com:8180/RIS/identities

    i get valid results (snippet below).


    Code:
    --------------------

    "GUID": "66716392b9c8b044f3a466716392b9c8",
    "Link": "/RIS/identities/66716392b9c8b044f3a466716392b9c8",
    "DN": "cn=name,ou=Active,ou=Identities,ou=Internal,o=company",
    "FirstName": [
    "somename"
    ],
    "LastName": [
    "somesurname"

    --------------------


    If i then create a call with this specific GUID:

    http://tinyurl.com/qxbm7eu

    the error occurs:


    Code:
    --------------------

    {
    "Code": {
    "Value": "Sender",
    "Subcode": {
    "Value": "InvalidUri"
    }
    },
    "Reason": {
    "Text": "Not found"
    }
    }

    --------------------


    Call is done using the Userapp Administrator to be sure I have enough
    rights.
    I've deployed the same config to one of our QA environments and the same
    behavior occurs.
    This occurs for all identities (well, i did not test 100 identities, but
    a random selection of 10 out of 100 had this problem in both
    environments).
