User App 4.7.2 - Use of Entities (Portlets deprecated)

Jump to solution
Hi Everyone,

We have upgraded to IDM and Identity Applications 4.7.2 with eDir 9.1.2 and we have some quetions about the use of Entities in idmdash.

In Identity Applications 4.5.6 we used to use Portlets to create objects in eDir, so now we want to replace them (because portlets are deprecated) with Entities, and we have this issues:


  • If we have an attribute as a global list, it does not displayed as a list in 4.7.2
  • If we open the tab "Entities" the entities are displayed with its ldap name, is there any way to change it for its Display Label?
  • If we have a DN attribute, the lookup only shows user and group classes (the attribute is not from either user or group class), but in 4.5.6 showed the correct classes, how can we change it?


If anyone needs additional information just ask for it!

Thanks.

Sorry to see you did not get any responses to this problem as we have a similar one.

We would like to use the entities to have a standard solution for creating and managing virtual identities. But with no possibility to use DNLookups for other-than-User-entities or show global lists, it is not a satisfying option. 

We have 4.7.3 installed, but apparently there was not the slightest improvement in this feature with the last patch.

How did you manage to tackle the problem? Is it necessary to build own custom PRDs or could you share another way of solving this issue?

Thanks & best regards,
Katharina

4.7.3 did add a new way to get at Entities...

As a UA Admin, upper right hand, Settings.

Then under Customization, there is a Navigation selection drop down for each defined entity. If you click the + sign you can add a new one for anything in the DAL.

Hey Geoff,

thanks for your reply. We actually already tried some configurations with this entities you described (in Settings / Customization)

But the defined DN Lookup and global/local lists for the attributes of the entity do not work. DNLookup does not refer to the in the DAL defined Entity; the list is not shown. So the behaviour is still as described for 4.7.2 and does not really allow creation / modificytion of any objects that need more than a few values which can be added as free text.

Best regards,
Katharina

Playing with Entities, it makes me wonder why I cannot expose the Group or Role entity from the list that is in my DAL...  Seems like DAL entries outside the default set. Odd choices.
