Designer 4.8, JSON Array and JSON Object nouns?

Hi,

I see these nouns in the argument builder in Designer 4.8 that I haven't seen before.

But I can find any documentation on them and I can't find them in the dirxmlscript.dtd for 4.8.

One is named token-json-array in the XML.

Does anybody have any more information on how to use them etc?

Thanks

I would guess this is a feature to come that did not make it into 4.8 but someone missed to remove all references (or accidentally checked in bits of the new code). Let's see what 4.8.1 brings... 🙂

So like the extensions to the Map Token and the Query tokens in 4.7.3 (which now, sort of have Designer GUIs) they seem to be updating the DirXMLScript support in the engine without neccesarily the Designer GUI at the same time.  Not sure if iManager is getting updtaed though.

 

Easier to test in Designer offlinie than find a 4.8 instance with iManager right now and test.

Also the do-invoke-rest-endpoinnt does not seem to have a GUI yet. And it is slightly complex to implement by hand in XML.  Worst is Designer will likely throw it all away if you edit the Policy object and save.

 

Also the enhancments to If-src-attr and if-dest-attr that allow you to specify an arg-dn.  I.e. If Source Attr is only the current object. Now you can say Object B referenced by a variable holding a DN.  Nice enhancements but no GUI builder.  And Designer throws away the change if you touch it after making the XML work.

Alas, I wish this were not the case.

Likely this is only useful with the new call rest endpoint tokens.

(Educated guess, may be totally off the mark)

Good catch!  I see those as well. Very odd tryingto use them.

 

JSON Object looks like yu can make a JSON object, keys and strings.

The JSON Array s less clear.

I have to go nag again. I got them to add the big stuff to the DTD docs for 4.8 here:
