Starting workflows with :InitiatorOverrideDN through REST

Hi.

I know that it's possible to overwrite the initiator when starting a wf from a driver, with the parameter :InitiatorOverrideDN.

Is this also possible to do when starting af wf from REST (RIS.war)?.

If someone has an Example of this it would be great.

Thanks in advance.

There are a couple of limitations in the REST interface - chapter 32.2.4
of the Admin guide shows the info required to start a wf, other
parameters are ignored.

SOAP has the API startAsProxy which might do what you need.

Hi Wolfgang.

Thank you for your reply. I'll have a look at the SOAP service then.

Please note that RIS.war was deprecated with IDM 4.5.

It's not depricated. It's moved.

What I mean is that REST is not depricated. iths only the file RIS.war that is and will be moved into something else.

Greetings,
The RIS war is depreciated. There will be a completely different
set of REST endpoints that end customers will be able to utilize. Also,
please be aware that it is not a 1-1 replacement. You may not have all
of the same functionality that was in the RIS.war

I'd like to hope that there will be a well documented map of what is the same, what is different, and what is no longer available? Preferably with a recommendation of "if you're using X, you should convert to Y", for the functionality that will be lost. I'd like to see this 6 months to a year prior to the change, with overlap, so that we have time to investigate and change anything that needs changing. Otherwise, it'll be just another roadblock to upgrading, and there are already too may of those.
