Creating / Synchronizing roles automatically


Hi all,

I saw in other threads, that we could create roles using REST services,
but did not find any information about creating role in the REST
reference documentation, only infos about looking for roles and
assignement. Does anyone knows how to do it?

Also, I appreciate any other idea to create roles automatically (based
on groups) with IDM 4.5 ?

Permission/collection may help to create resources,/entitlements, but
not roles ...

Thanks

Sylvain

    I am pretty sure that the Role provisioning API is actually SOAP.

    UA, Administration top tab, RBPM Configuration bottom left tab.

    Then, on the resulting page is a link to the WSDL for all but one of the
    endpoints, (I forget which one is missed in the UI, but you modify one
    of the others to its name to get it).

    Get the Provisioning WSDl. Actually no, I think you need the
    roleservice one, which I think is the unnamed one...

    (Do not have a live system to test that against). I have the WSDL file
    if you cannot find it.
