    Sentinel Identity Tracking Driver


    Hey All,

    Having a look at Sentinel, and have configured several event sources,
    all IDM and eDirectory to report into Sentinel. All good so far.

    I'd like to install the Sentinel Identity Tracking Driver, and have done
    so in a development environment. I have attempted to configure the
    driver and upon start up see an error starting the following;

    [07/30/14 15:06:34.561]:Sentinel Identity Tracking ST:SentinelSub:
    execute
    [07/30/14 15:06:34.562]:Sentinel Identity Tracking ST:SentinelSub: GET :
    https://sentinelserver:8443/Sentinel...objects/schema
    [07/30/14 15:06:34.600]:Sentinel Identity Tracking
    ST:SubscriptionShim.execute() returned:
    [07/30/14 15:06:34.600]:Sentinel Identity Tracking ST:

    <source>
    <product build="22" instance="Sentinel Identity Tracking"
    version="2.0.0.0"/>
    <contact>NetIQ Corporation</contact>
    </source>
    <output>
    <status event-id="query-driver-ident"
    level="retry">com.netiq.idm.sentinel.shim.error.Re tryConnectException:
    Unable to connect to the Sentinel server: Connection error
    The underlying error is
    com.novell.sentinel.client.bean.BeanSerializationE xception:

    Line 1, column 414: error from JSON handler: Invalid value name
    'value-format' for object type 'attr-schema'

    Is there any configuration required in IDM or Sentinel prior to starting
    the driver? I've tried to find any steps or other that I have missed but
    haven't had any luck as yet.

    Sentinel 7?
    IDM 4.0.2?

    Patched with 'IDM 4.0.2 Sentinel Driver version 4.0.0.0'
    (http://download.novell.com/protected...d=7SNQSpTZtKQ~)
    and followed instructions about copy client libraries?

    Re: Sentinel Identity Tracking Driver


    btw, you also aware that Sentinel IdT is licensed separately?

    Just because a customer owns Sentinel 7 and IDM 4, doesn't mean they get
    a connector that joins the two for free (can you sense the irritation in
    my typing?)... I think its rediculous, but that's how it rolls...

    Re: Sentinel Identity Tracking Driver


    Brand new install of Sentinel 7.2, with IDM SE 4.0.2.

    I've just created a new driver from Designer, and checked but have no
    further package updates related to the driver...

    Not so concerned about the licensing for the moment, as I'm more looking
    at what the product and driver is capable of. Although it would have
    been nice not to have to pay extra for the driver

    The core here, is to transfer the contents of DirXML-Accounts to
    Sentinel, for Identity Injection, via REST.

    So sounds like the getSchema() function call is failing, based on your
    error:

    The underlying error is
    com.novell.sentinel.client.bean.BeanSerializationE xception:
    com.novell.sentinel.json.java.JSONParserImpl$JSONP arsePositionException:
    Line 1, column 414: error from JSON handler: Invalid value name
    'value-format' for object type 'attr-schema'

    So my guess is that with 7.2 they might have changed the REST interface?
    Specifically what it returns as schema?

    Looks like it is parsing wrong.

    As long as client libraries are updated with current version.... 7.2
    release also renamed the client libraries with version number, so makes
    it more fun making sure you only have 1 copy of the right ones.....

    But in Java, file name is almost irrelevant. Did they version the class
    names as well?

    Thanks guys,

    The patch seems to have resolved the error which is great.

    The comments regarding the DirXML-Accounts has thrown me a little and
    I'm unfamiliar with this attribute. We have the attribute, but no users
    have this attribute on their user objects.

    Do we need policy to write this attribute / value? Should it be already
    set?
