Good Grammar - and IDM Rules

Problem



As a Canadian, I find I try to use proper capitalization and punctuation whereever possible.



One place where this is a mistake is when naming an IDM Policy object - or any other object that is stored in eDirectory by its pretty name.



I like to use descriptive names for Policies and Rules, so they are somewhat self-explanatory.



For example:



[ACME] Rule to transform User Disables.


Solution



Do not end the policy name (which I like to create as a descriptive sentence) with a period. This will end up trying to create a rule called

[ACME] Rule to transform User Disables..acmedriver.acme



You can see the double period in the object name, which will not work in eDirectory well.



Easy enough to fix - use incorrect punctuation!
