We are running OS400 in our Prod environment. Which runs on V6R1 release. When we are trying to configure the Template we get the following error.


  Cause: Account for Global User 'ca12345' on OS400 Endpoint 'PMIAS02' creation failed: The length for attribute'eTAS4JobDescription' is greater than the maximum of 40 Action: Assign user "Profile Tester (ca12345)" provisioning role "DDIC_CSR2_CONTRACTOR_PMIAS02"


Pl let us know if there is any fix for this. We are running on CA IDM 12.6 SP3.

At customer site we got a similar problem for another filed: eTAS4JobTitle

ERROR REPORTED: The length for attribute 'eTAS4JobTitle' is greater than the maximum of 40


Customer said me that is not possible to truncate this field to 40 chars.


Any input ?

Can't see how this would stop you for creating accounts in OS400?

All that is needed is to restrict this field to not be longer than 40 chars.

This can be done a couple of ways. For example with a LAH in IM or directly in the account template by utilising rulestring on the format %UT:1,40% (i.e. only expand the first 40 chars)

Thanks for your reply. Currently we are having issues in creating an new user in OS400. How are we going to fix this issue? This is the show stopper for the user account being created in OS400.

Thanks for submitting the idea. The use case is clear, however, at this stage we have not seen a high volume of requests for this enhancement. The idea will be moved to the Wish List bucket for further monitoring and consideration in the future.
