NAM - Data Source & Attribute Source - send ClientIP

On Access Manager 4.5.0.0-191 we need to send current user Location information to REST API (IDM REST driver). Perfect solution for this is Data Source and Attribute Source. Which can request data from another service/database.

 

 We have thought of few options but we are always missing something and we can’t connect all the dots.

First option we thought of:

1.Attribute Source is configured to send  input parameters: {P2} - Credential Entry Name , {P1} – SOME WAY OF GATHERING USER IP ### WE  CAN’T FIND METHOD THAT CAN DO THIS###

Problem in this option is that we can’t find a way how to gather user IP address.

 

Second option we thought of:

1.Attribute Source is configured to send  input parameters: {P2} - Credential Entry Name , {P1} All Roles

Problem in this option is that on NAM we can’t activate role based on user IP. We couldn’t find option like that in configuration.

 

Does anyone else have any experience or idea how to make it work in any way?
