I5osdrv: adding attributes to the publisher channel


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?

    The attributes do not exist. I need to add them. I need to know how to
    get at the shim to do so. Specifically, I need to get out last login and
    intruder attempts.

    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.
