No. Create a user with a different name, share folders, move stuff over, delete the resource, rename the user.

I need to convert a resource to an user, and read the article mentioned.
Only (?) problem: My system runs on a Windows Server. How do I start "REST API" here?

Thanks

Hi Jens,

You need to download and install CURL on your Windows server.

Look here: http://curl.haxx.se/download.html

Nice thing about the REST API, is you can work from any workstation.

You could download curl for Windows, as Laura stated.
Alternatively if you happen to have a linux server / desktop with curl, you can use that to run your commands as well.

Shane Nielson Kind of alright at doing stuff with the computer thing

Svar: Re: How to convert user to resource

I'm a little stuck in the process...
I need to convert a resource to an user, but the example given by Diethmar Rimser creates a new resource using REST, not an user.

curl -k --user admin https://172.16.2.254:9710/gwadmin-service/domains/do1/postoffices/po1/resources -H “Content-Type: application/json” -X POST -d ‘{“name”:”resource1”, “fileId”: “5da”,”owner”: “admin”}’

So I guess I should change "resources" to "users", and perhaps something else 🙂
But I have no idea...

Btw. my GroupWise runs on Windows, if this changes something.

Hi Jens,

Perhaps this TID will assist with creating a user with a specific FID: https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7014868

Please let us know how it goes.

Hi Laura



Thanks - it worked. You just have to restart the POA before the user is visible.



Kind regards

Hi Jens,

I'm so glad that it worked for you. I was not aware that a restart of the POA was necessary, so I've learned something from you 🙂 Thank you for reporting back.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley
