NetIQ Identity Applicaiton Rest API to Delete permissions from NetIQ REST driver


NEtIQ IDM 4.7.3 AE


DELETE /assignment/permissions

Delete permissions assigned to an assignee.


We are doing  add and delete permissions from NetIQ REST driver towards NetIQ Identity Application REST service, in our experience

1) Add permissions just works fine, both from NetIQ REST driver and from Postman.

2) Delete permissions has some strange behavior


from postman:

   doing HTTP method delete with the following payload:


"permissions": [
"domainType": "ROLES",
"dn": "CN=12353,CN=Level10,CN=RoleDefs,CN=RoleConfig,CN=AppConfig,CN=UA,CN=DriverSet,OU=IDM,OU=Services,O=ORG",
"permission": "nrfAccessViewRole",
"objType": "Role",
"objClass": "nrfRole"
"assignedToDN": "CN=jamesbond,OU=EU,O=ORG"

gives sucessfully reply, but it has no affect, permissions are still there when looking from UX within Identity Applciaiton. Even catalina.out shows delete permissions messages in logs.

2020-04-29 19:50:42,695 INFO [com.novell.idm.security.authorization.service.AuthorizationManagerService] (https-jsse-nio-8443-exec-9) [RBPM] [Delete_Authorization] Initiated by cn=bobAdmin,ou=EU,o=ORG; Auth Object ID: CN=12353,CN=Level10,CN=RoleDefs,CN=RoleConfig,CN=AppConfig,CN=UA,CN=DriverSet,OU=IDM,OU=Services,O=ORG; Message: Authorization deleted successfully


but doing samethign with NETIQ Rest driver comes 500 error;

with following HTML as response:


<p> </p>
<div style="margin-left: 3%; margin-right: 3%; width: 100%; max-width: 94%;">
<table border="0" width="100%">
<td><a href="/IDMProv"><img src="/IDMProv/images/netiq.gif" alt="NetIQ Corporation." border="0" /></a></td>
<td align="right"><a href="/IDMProv">Home</a></td>
<!--hr--><br /><span class="portlet-error-msg">An Error has occurred:</span>
<table id="errorMessage" border="1" width="100%" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2">
<td class="nv-fontMedium nv-color1 nv-fontBold" valign="top" width="20%">Message</td>
<td class="nv-fontSmall" width="80%">An error has occurred while processing your request. Please contact the administrator, or click the back button and try again.</td>
<br /><br /><br /><br /></div>



I am already in doubt that NetIQ REST driver does not handle DELETE with Body, whereas NetiIQ Identity Application REST  API developer preferred to use DELETE for remove permissions in Identity application requiring Body 😞


What to do? Removing ACL directly from eDirectory is another option.
