RapidIdentity Product Guide: New UI

RapidIdentity Connect Standards

Action Set

Use proper case with no punctuation. Always start with a capital letter to distinguish from Core Actions.

  • Globals

  • DBToAD

When naming system-to-system Action Sets, use the system names. If there is more than one system of the same type, describe it with the system type.

  • TextStaffToAD

  • ADIdautoToGoogle

  • DBStudentsToEdirAcme

For alternate actions, use the module and action name

  • ACTMChangePassword

  • SPMCreate

For workflow actions, preface the Action Set name with "WFM"

  • WFMProvisionAccount

  • WFMDeprovisionAccount

  • WFMManageGroupMembership

For special purpose Action Sets that act like a "function", use an "Fn" prefix

  • FnGeneratePassword

  • FnHasRecordChanged

Action Set Category

The following are the standard Action Set categories (folders)

  • “lib” - Contains helper Action Sets (e.g. Global, HasRecordChanged)

  • “Tools” - Support provided Action Sets (e.g. ArchiveLogs)

  • “Identity” - System to system related Action Sets that provide identity and access management functionality (e.g. TextStaffToAD)

  • “Reports” - Action sets that create reports and/or report data

  • “Manual” - Action sets that are run periodically or ad-hoc basis

For alternate actions, place by their module:

  • “ARMS|SPM”

  • “ARMS|GMM”

The “|” character creates subfolders.

Input Properties

Use lower case with underscores

  • key_field

  • key_value

  • log_only

Local Variables

Use lower case with underscores

  • current_time

  • default_password

Global Variables

Always start with “Global”

Use system prefix with camel case

  • Global.adHost

  • Global.ldapUser

  • Global.armsURL

General Standards
  • Do not store values in core schema that doesn’t describe the data. For example, don’t store a job code value in the physicalDeliveryOfficeName attribute.

  • Verify the use of custom attributes with a Solution Architect (or Manager of Services) to ensure proper use

  • Requests for new custom attributes must be made to Solution Architect (or Manager of Services)

  • Use “employeeID” attribute for storing employee ID’s and student ID’s.

  • If there is a chance of overlap, add a prefix of “E” for employees or “S” for students. Store the *original* value in the “employeeNumber” attribute. For example, an employee with an employee ID of 1234 would have employeeID=E1234 and employeeNumber=1234.

  • Always use double quotes (“) when referring to strings

  • The only exception is when you have a string within a string, in which case you will use a single quote for the inner string (‘). e.g. “INSERT INTO table (‘column1’) VALUES (foo’)”

  • Always refer to record fields using record[‘field’] syntax. (i.e. refrain from using record.field)

  • Using consistent syntax helps everyone understand the usage.

    • record[‘givenName’].toUpperCase() <-- standard

    • record.givenName.toUpperCase() <-- not standard
