Tracking changes on NetIQ eDirectory


Hi,

Is there any way that we can get notified by the NETIQ eDirecotry when
there is a change (like user deletion, or user movement between the
OUS)on the directory side?
We want to design a tool to monitor the directory for any such
changes.Any pointers would be of great help.

Thanks,
Sankar.

You can use NetIQ Identity Manager to perform such tasks. See
https://www.netiq.com/documentation/idm45/policy/data/policytypearc.html
for an overview of its architecture.

Re: Tracking changes on NetIQ eDirectory

You can use:
A) Persistent search
B) LDAP Event Services:

C) As Norbert suggested, IDM

Re: Tracking changes on NetIQ eDirectory


Thanks for the inputs. I will go through those and get back to you if I
need any further clarifications.

BTW, are there any C++ samples available on implementation?

Thanks,
Sankar.

Re: Tracking changes on NetIQ eDirectory

Persistent searches are standard LDAP stuff, so yes I think the C SDK has
examples, but Google should also help, or you can look at the ldapsearch
code from OpenLDAP and that implements it too:

Re: Tracking changes on NetIQ eDirectory

1. Definitely IDM is the best option for this! Product natively designed to "catch" any changes on eDirectory (or application) side.
2. NetIQ has change-log module, used in Bidirectional eDirectory IDM Driver, but technically can be used like changelog LDAP extension. (I'm not sure about licensing)
3. Novell AUDIT, "native" eDirectory XDAS module, Sentinel can "log" all these changes.
4. SkyPRO Audit Dashboard can give you very nice visual Dashboard view of all your changes.


Depend from your real business requirements possible to find solution, that will satisfy all your needs. 🙂
