IG Custom Connector with Connector Xpress

  • 1.  IG Custom Connector with Connector Xpress

    Posted 02-18-2021 03:16 PM
    Hello,

    I was able to develop a custom JDBC connector using Connector Xpress and deploy it on JCS, i can register the connection on IG side, but I need to Import the Resources and Roles from the target endpoint, but I'm not able to see any Object Type at the association screen:


    If I select others endpoint types, like MS SQL Server the object type appears, but with my custom connector no option here. I have to flag some attribute at the connector metadata to IG recognize the type of my users and role classes?

    Regards
    Felipe

    When developing the dynamic connector using Connector Xpress, each attribute has a new flag named Interesting for Compliance. The attributes with this flag represent privileges that must be certified in IG.  See the Extended Metadata Properties section of the Connector Xpress section.

    Best regards,

    Frank

    Hello Yuan,

    Thanks for the reply, I suppose you are talking about this option?

    I enable that options for some attributes, but no lucky with that, the Object Type still doesn't appear on the Governance side.

    Anyone have an idea of what I'm missing in this configuration?

    After you checked interesting for compliance, did you generate new screens? And also re-imported the data with the new connector version?

    Hello,

    I have re-imported content from the connector after make the attribute change.

    About the screens, I think i need screens only for the Identity Manager side, isn't that correct? Maybe i'm missing something here, but for custom connector on Identity Manager we have to generate this screens to mange the endpoint from de UI, but I don't know about IG, where do I import this screens on IG side?

    Regards

    AFAIK, that is the only attribute that need to be changed and then redeploy it on IDM.  From the IG perspective, you don't need to import the screen from IDM.  Restart the IM  (e.g connector/Provisioning server)  and IG service.

    Can you describe how you have set up your "Associations".  If I remember correctly, IG only sees the associations if they are set up on the User Account side.  (If you have no associations, IG has nothing to certify)

    I'm not using IM to make this connector, only using Connector Xpress and Connector Server and deploying and try to connect directly from IG.

    I've try with Indirect Association, I'll try with direct association.
