IDM 7.2.1

Google Cloud Platform connector

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is a suite of cloud computing services offered by Google. The GCP connector lets you manage and synchronize accounts between GCP and IDM managed user objects. A GCP administrator account is required for this connector to work.

Before you start

Before you configure the connector, log in to your GCP administrator account and note the following:

Domain name

The domain name of the account on GCP—for example, example.com.

Private key

The private key is required to sign the JWT token used to authenticate with GCP.

Service account

The GCP connector uses a service account with two-legged OAuth to connect to GCP. A service account is identified by its email address, which is unique to the account.

Admin user

The GCP administrator username.

The Admin SDK API must also be enabled to allow viewing and managing users in the Google Cloud Platform.

Install the GCP connector

Download the connector .jar file from the ForgeRock BackStage download site.

  • If you are running the connector locally, place it in the /path/to/openidm/connectors directory, for example:

    mv ~/Downloads/gcp-connector-1.5.20.11.jar /path/to/openidm/connectors/
  • If you are using a remote connector server (RCS), place it in the /path/to/openicf/connectors directory on the RCS.

Configure the GCP connector

Create a connector configuration using the admin UI:

  1. Select Configure > Connectors and click New Connector.

  2. Enter a Connector Name.

  3. Select GCP Connector - 1.5.20.11 as the Connector Type.

  4. Provide the Base Connector Details.

  5. Click Save.

After the connector is configured, it displays as Active in the admin UI.

You can test the configuration is correct by running the following command:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request POST \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/gcp?_action=test"
{
  "name": "gcp",
  "enabled": true,
  "config": "config/provisioner.openicf/gcp",
  "connectorRef": {
    "bundleVersion": "[1.5.0.0,1.6.0.0)",
    "bundleName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.gcp-connector",
    "connectorName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.gcp.GcpConnector"
  },
  "displayName": "GCP Connector",
  "objectTypes": [
    "__ACCOUNT__",
    "__ALL__"
  ],
  "ok": true
}

If the command returns "ok": true, your connector was configured correctly and can authenticate to the Google Cloud Platform system.

For a full list of attributes on GCP user accounts, refer to the GCP documentation.

You can use the GCP connector to perform the following actions on a GCP account:

Create a GCP user

The following example creates a user with the minimum required attributes:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request POST \
--data '{
  "__NAME__": "bjensen@example.com",
  "__PASSWORD__": "Passw0rd!",
  "givenName": "Barbara",
  "familyName": "Jensen"
}' \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/gcp/__ACCOUNT__?_action=create"
{
  "_id": "115637914640083360831"
}

When you create a new user, you must specify at least __NAME__, __PASSWORD__, givenName, and familyName. Refer to the list of available attributes for more information.

Update a GCP user

You can modify an existing user with a PUT request, including all attributes of the account in the request. The following attributes can be modified on a user:

  • primaryEmail

  • __PASSWORD__

  • givenName

  • familyName

  • organizations

  • addresses

  • emails

  • externalIds

  • relations

  • phones

For example, to add a new phone to a user:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--header "If-Match:*" \
--request PUT \
--data '{
  "__NAME__": "bjensen@example.com",
  "phones": [{
    "type": "mobile",
    "value": "+1 888 555 2312",
    "primary": true
  }]
}' \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/gcp/__ACCOUNT__/115637914640083360831"
{
  "_id": "115637914640083360831",
  "givenName": "Barbara",
  "__UID__": "115637914640083360831",
  "phones": [
    {
      "value": "+1 888 555 2312",
      "type": "mobile"
    }
  ],
  "__NAME__": "bjensen@example.com",
  "familyName": "Jensen",
  "__ENABLE__": false,
  "emails": [
    {
      "address": "bjensen@example.com",
      "primary": true
    },
    {
      "address": "bjensen@example.com.test-google-a.com"
    }
  ]
}

The updated data may not appear in the initial response but appears on any future queries of that user.

The following example queries all GCP users:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request GET \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/gcp/__ACCOUNT__?_queryId=query-all-ids"
{
  "result": [
    {
      "_id": "103181194086915091216"
    },
    {
      "_id": "104153234757881174617"
    },

  "phones": [
    {
      "value": "+1 888 555 2312",
      "type": "mobile"
    }
  ],
  "__NAME__": "bjensen@example.com",
  "familyName": "Jensen",
  "__ENABLE__": false,
  "emails": [
    {
      "address": "bjensen@example.com",
      "primary": true
    },
    {
      "address": "bjensen@example.com.test-google-a.com"
    }
  ]
}

While the __PASSWORD__ field is not returned as part of the response, the user object is updated.

Delete a GCP account

You can use the GCP connector to delete an account from the GCP service.

The following example deletes a GCP account:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request DELETE \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/gcp/__ACCOUNT__/115637914640083360831"
{
  "_id": "115637914640083360831",
  "givenName": "Barbara",
  "__UID__": "115637914640083360831",
  "phones": [
    {
      "value": "+1 888 555 2312",
      "type": "mobile"
    }
  ],
  "__NAME__": "bjensen@example.com",
  "familyName": "Jensen",
  "__ENABLE__": false,
  "emails": [
    {
      "address": "bjensen@example.com",
      "primary": true
    },
    {
      "address": "bjensen@example.com.test-google-a.com"
    }
  ]
}

OpenICF Interfaces Implemented by the GCP Connector

The GCP Connector implements the following OpenICF interfaces. For additional details, see ICF interfaces:

Create

Creates an object and its uid.

Delete

Deletes an object, referenced by its uid.

Schema

Describes the object types, operations, and options that the connector supports.

Script on Connector

Enables an application to run a script in the context of the connector.

Any script that runs on the connector has the following characteristics:

  • The script runs in the same execution environment as the connector and has access to all the classes to which the connector has access.

  • The script has access to a connector variable that is equivalent to an initialized instance of the connector. At a minimum, the script can access the connector configuration.

  • The script has access to any script arguments passed in by the application.

Search

Searches the target resource for all objects that match the specified object class and filter.

Test

Tests the connector configuration.

Testing a configuration checks all elements of the environment that are referred to by the configuration are available. For example, the connector might make a physical connection to a host that is specified in the configuration to verify that it exists and that the credentials that are specified in the configuration are valid.

This operation might need to connect to a resource, and, as such, might take some time. Do not invoke this operation too often, such as before every provisioning operation. The test operation is not intended to check that the connector is alive (that is, that its physical connection to the resource has not timed out).

You can invoke the test operation before a connector configuration has been validated.

Update

Updates (modifies or replaces) objects on a target resource.
