IDM 7.2.0

Call a script from the IDM configuration

To call a script from the IDM configuration, edit the configuration object. For example:

Provide a script source
{
    "type" : "text/javascript",
    "source": "scriptSource",
    "resourceBindings" : [{
        "resource" : "resourceName",
        "version" : "1.0",
        "binding" : "customName"
    }]
}

or

Provide a file reference
{
    "type" : "text/javascript",
    "file" : "file location"
}

Script variables are not necessarily simple key:value pairs, and can be any arbitrarily complex JSON object.

type

string, required

The script type.

IDM supports "text/javascript" and "groovy".

source

string, required if file is not specified

Specifies the source code of the script to be executed.

resourceBindings

JSON object, optional

Allows specifying a resource, a vanity binding for that resource, and the API version the script should use. For example:

{
    "source" : "var response = consent.action(\"getConsentMappings\", {}); response[0];",
    "resourceBindings" : [{
        "resource" : "consent",
        "version" : "1.0",
        "binding" : "consent"
    }],
    "type" : "text/javascript"
}

This can improve the legibility of your scripts, by no longer needing to pass additional information within your script function.

file

string, required if source is not specified

Specifies the file containing the source code of the script to execute. The file path must be relative to project-dir. Absolute paths are not supported.

In general, you should namespace variables passed into scripts with the globals map. Passing variables in this way prevents collisions with the top-level reserved words for script maps, such as source, file, and type. This example uses the globals map to namespace the variables passed in the previous example.

"script": {
    "type" : "text/javascript",
    "file" : "script/triggerEmailNotification.js",
    "globals" : {
        "fromSender" : "admin@example.com",
        "toEmail" : "user@example.com"
    }
}

Examples

The following example script (in the mapping configuration) determines whether to include or ignore a target object in the reconciliation process based on an employeeType of true:

"validTarget" : {
    "type" : "text/javascript",
    "source" : "target.employeeType == 'external'"
}

The following example script (in the mapping configuration) sets the __PASSWORD__ attribute to defaultpwd when IDM creates a target object:

"onCreate" : {
    "type" : "text/javascript",
    "source" : "target.__PASSWORD__ = 'defaultpwd'"
}

Often, script files are reused in different contexts. You can pass variables to your scripts to provide these contextual details at runtime. You pass variables to the scripts that are referenced in configuration files by declaring the variable name in the script reference.

The following scheduled task configuration calls a script that triggers an email notification, but sets the sender and recipient of the email in the schedule configuration, rather than in the script itself:

{
    "enabled" : true,
    "type" : "cron",
    "schedule" : "0 0/1 * * * ?",
    "persisted" : true,
    "invokeService" : "script",
    "invokeContext" : {
        "script" : {
            "type" : "text/javascript",
            "file" : "script/triggerEmailNotification.js",
            "fromSender" : "admin@example.com",
            "toEmail" : "user@example.com"
        }
    }
}
