Re: IDM4.8 released

Designer is actually quicker!!

If you recall, in the past, in nthe User App driver, there was an AppConfig item, and then it could be expanded to PRD, DAL, etc... 

That is gone. Now the only way to get to the Prov view is the lower left box, in the Provisioning tab.  Which was there before.

 

Apparently the reason this helps is that every time certain things happen in Designer, it reloads everything into memory (including ALL the active projects in the workspace, so disable unused projects for performance) and that included EVERY UA in every project, which can be 'large'.

So now none of the Prov elements get reloaded i those cases, which really helps.

So Yay!  TOm Burt has suggested he wants to do more to make things faster, but lets all say "yay" for this bit, if only that.  🙂

Also new Form Designer in interesting and I have yet to form an opinion on it.

Re: IDM4.8 released

Don't forget you need eDir 9.2 as well.

9.2 includes the begiinings of the move to REST endpoint to manage eDir objects. 

Not complete in 9.2, more coming in later versions, but an interesting step forward. (Not that I am a huge REST fan, but whatever).

Re: IDM4.8 released

Where do we find the REST API documentation? Is it with the REST container,
once it is deployed?

Maybe the documentation isn't released as the container download isn't
available yet for 9.2 or IDM 4.8.

Re: IDM4.8 released

Why would it be linked to containers?
More likely it just isnt in the documentation yet.

The REST service looks to be a front end. If I recall correctly it is
containerized. Looks like OSP is also containerized, which it also has to
integrate with.

I had heard at one point that it was over LDAP, so probably over extended
controls. Based on the documentation, it looks to be configured via 636.
