I have built quite a few drivers over the years using DirXML (IDM). I have been recently tasked with attaching our identity vault to our main frame. The issue I have is in finding any documentation on how to add attributes to the publisher channel on the mainframe. Any direction would be greatly appreciated. An example would be even better.
I am specifically wanting to get out intruder attempts and last login.

Does the connected system support the attributes you're trying to get? Is this a question of how to get the shim to do so?

So the way IDM works is, the source system has to have the data.
Does AS400 have the data?
If not, how do you expect to get something the system does not contain?
Now, having said all that, it is nice if you understand how the AS400 driver works. It is basically a Scripting driver for AS400, I think using the CL command language.
So... Do you have an AS400 resource? Does he know AS400 well enough to figure out how to get the data you want? If so, he can look at the CL Scripts and modify them to generate the attributes if the shim asks for them.
The data is there and I already have some queries written by our resource to get it out. I just can't find where the CL scripts are that need editing. I can find the CL scripts for the subsciber, but not the publisher. I assume it works by polling for changes, but I could be wrong.
