Connect OpenDJ LDAP service to Websphere federated repositories

Nice that it is possible ­čÖé

1. Add repository:

Global security > Federated repositories > Manage repositories > Add
Directory type: IBM Tivoli Directory Server
SAVE
Directory type: Custom
SAVE

2. Add base entry to realm:

Global security > Federated repositories > Add Base entry to Realm

Name: EXT
Distinguished name of a base entry that uniquely identifies this set of entries in the realm
DC=EXT
Distinguished name of a base entry in this repository
dc=ext,dc=host,dc=pl

3. If required – modify Group attribute definition to your LDAP member naming standards

4. If required – modify LDAP entity types to your LDAP ObjectClass settings, base dn and search filter

5. Restart Was Manager

6. Edit
Global security > Federated repositories > EXT > LDAP entity types

Group groupOfUniqueNames

7. Configure VMMSYNC on IBM Control Desk to fetch users/groups

8. Restart JVM-S on which login should be possible

Error: CWWIM4537E No principal is found from the ‘cn=wasadmin,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm’

Maximo Integration – Object Structure create/update

As written in previous post it is needed to create or extend Object Structure to have possibility to read, add or update record connected mboSets.

Example definition:

Object Parent Object Object Location Path Relationship
ASSET ASSET
ASSETUSERCUST ASSET ASSET/ASSETUSERCUST ASSETUSERCUST
ASSETSPEC ASSET ASSET/ASSETSPEC ASSETSPECCLASS

After create object structure You should “Generate Schema”.

Add worklog to record by REST Api

Problem:

Adding comment to to record by simply create WORKLOG mbo through the rest Api is not possible.

Such action results in Error 400: comlog#ownerNull.

Solution:

Right way to do this is adding WORKLOG from parent record, using custom object structure (which has to have relation to WORKLOG enabled).

Tasks:

1. Choose  (or create) Object Structure for Integration, which will have relation to WORKLOG object.

2. Fetch record using that object structure

3. Add workload in form of attributes list:

WORKLOG.index.DESCRIPTION

(…) where index will be number of existing comments + 1
