How to use parameters in OIA reports

Firstly, download the fire add on live http headers as it will allow you to see what is getting passed through the HTTP headers.
December 23, 2014
OIA-11g

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/live-http-headers/

Follow the guide to install the add-on (its pretty simple to install)

Go to the OIA Report URL where you are about to run the report. Before pressing the run button to run your report go to TOOLS - LIVE HTTP HEADERS within Firefox (This will open up a new window, which will allow you to see the http information passing to the app server within the http header). Request for the report with the date range parameters. You will see something like this when executed correctly

It shows that it is passing 2 string values. 2 first rows show the values, the { } brackets reference those values

c0-e1=string:08%2F01%2F2011 c0-e2=string:08%2F02%2F2011 c0-param1=Object_Object:{startDate:reference:c0-e1, endDate:reference:c0-e2}

This means that the startDate and endDate is being passed Go into ireports and design your

For testing purposes, I created a SQL script below which I used in the ireport wizard.

SELECT name, period
FROM rbacxservice.ID_CERTS WHERE period
between to_date ('08%01%2001', 'mm/dd/yyyy')
AND to_date ('08%01%2011', 'mm/dd/yyyy')

Note: '08%2F01%2F2011' is getting passed through within the string though to test this in SQL it has to be '08%01%2011 not '08%2F01%2F2011'

When you have your report working and connected to the OIA database, go to the right hand side and add a new parameter called endDate and startDate

Put the values in as string When go to the report query to look at the query you have created

SELECT name, period
FROM rbacxservice.ID_CERTS WHERE period
between to_date ('08%01%2001', 'mm/dd/yyyy')
AND to_date ('08%01%2011', 'mm/dd/yyyy')

SELECT name, period
FROM rbacxservice.ID_CERTS WHERE period
between to_date ($P{startDate}, 'mm/dd/yyyy')
AND to_date ($P{endDate}, 'mm/dd/yyyy')

Save and push through to OIA and watch it work

HOW TO provision AD group membership from OpenIDM

OpenIDMICFAD-connector

June 15, 2018
Created by: Daniel Redfern
For what I see, there's not too many supportive documentations out there that will demonstrate how provision AD group membership with the ICF connector using OpenIDM. The use of the special ldapGroups attribute is not explained anywhere in the Integrators guides to to the date of this blog. This quick blog identifies the tasks required to provision AD group membership from OpenIDM to AD using the LDAP ICF connector. However this doesn't really explain what ldapGroups actually does and there's no real worked example of how to go from an Assignment to ldapGroups to an assigned group in AD. I wrote up a wiki article for my own reference: AD group memberships automatically to users This is just my view, others may disagree, but I think the implementation experience could be improved with some more documentation and a more detailed example here.
