Creating Universal AD Groups in IDM

Problem



Having Identity Manager create groups in AD that are Universal, not Global (like the default behavior is) can be an issue.



Solution



In the Subscriber channel under the Creation Rule, create a new rule. I called mine "Create Groups as Universal."



If class name = group, then set destination attribute value("groupType",class name="Group","-2147483640").



This now creates all groups as universal groups in AD. Just a little tip: if you use parent and child domains and want to have groups created, be universal so that you can add users cross-domain.



Note: This solution was tested in an environment with Netware 6.5 SP5 and IDM 3.0.



Example



<rule>
<description>Create Groups as Universal</description>
<conditions>
<and>
<if-class-name mode="nocase" op="equal">Group</if-class-name>
</and>
</conditions>
<actions>
<do-set-dest-attr-value class-name="Group" name="groupType">
<arg-value>
<token-text xml:space="preserve">-2147483640</token-text>
</arg-value>
</do-set-dest-attr-value>
</actions>
</rule>
