Manager DN


Hi All

I'm using the delimited text driver to create temp users that can be
provisioned for internet. I needed to build the manager dn for approval,
the manager is the financial approver. Does anyone see any problems with
constructing the manager dn using the GCV and manager operation
attribute.
I have in the creation policy, reformat opp attribute"manager"-GCV
users+"\"+operation attribute"manager". It works perfectly and I can
approve the auto started workflow. I know there are massive limitations
if I were to use placement policies, but this is a second vault
specifically for temp users that get removed at the end of the
conference and new users created as needed.

Cheers

Re: Manager DN

That seems more than reasonable given the context of your need.

If you know that the value coming in is really unique, rather than
simply trusting its placement, you could search for it first, (set local
variable MANAGER, as a nodeset, to a Query for the manager object. Then
set local variable MANAGER-DN as XPATH $MANAGER/@src-dn and if you need
LDAP, ParseDN (from qualified-slash to LDAP based on XPATH of
$MANAGER/@qualified-src-dn).

Re: Manager DN


Thanks, I couldn't see any issues when the users are placed within the
gcv placement value. The search may be something that I will have to
look at, if and when they want to expand on the control of placement.
Cheers
