Identity Broker for chris21 errors when attempting to write to fax attribute

Nick Mathas 8 years ago in UNIFYBroker/Novell Identity Manager • updated by anonymous 3 years ago 8

Here is an error I am getting when I attempt to write the fax attribute (alttele) to CHRIS21... I think this is the same error reflected twice.

Identity Broker Errors:

Fixed by Version:

For some reason the "Facsimile Telephone Number" has some additional attributes; here is a copy of the XDS document prepared by NIM:

Problem is actually unrelated to chris21, and appears to be because NIM is sending the fax number to Identity Broker in a different format.

Here is a copy of the NIM rule that strips the additional attributes from Fax Number (This has been applied as a Command Transformation Rule on the Subscriber Channel):

FaxNumber Convert Policy, the paste of the policy left out some key syntax

Just saw your email about this Patrick and had already spoken to Nick. Looks like he has worked out how to extract a componenet of a structure attribute with XPATH.

Awesome, thanks Eddie. Hope it wasn't too much trouble!

Updated billing key, fix version.

Hi Nick,

Please close this issue if you're satisfied with the fix you put in place, or re-open if you'd like me to revisit some kind of a fix in the adapter.
