Add/Remove Roles and Groups using Bulk Loader


Article ID: 111765

CA Identity Manager CA Identity Suite


We would like to know how to add/remove the admin roles using bulk loader of users.
Example: Several users have 4 admin roles and we need to remove only 1 admin role, keeping other 3 admin roles.

Can this be accomplished with the Bulk Loader?


All versions of Identity Suite (Identity Manager)


The Bulk Loader requests only support modification of attributes on the IM admin task's Profile tab, meaning you can't add or remove Roles (or groups) in bulk directly using the Bulk Loader.
What you could do is use the Bulk Loader to modify a user attribute that then triggers a PX or Identity policy in IM to add or remove the role (or group) based on that attribute modification.

Bulk Loader cannot remove an existing Role or Group, to achieve the results of removing a Role or group, the bulk load will have to modify an attribute that triggers a Task within IDM which calls a TASK to remove the Rrole from the users.
