Is it possible to add a user using web services? I am trying to do this using .net but I am getting errors. I was able to search and delete users!
The users are controlled through the synchronization with an LDAP source. You should be adding the users through that means and doing a synch with that LDAP source.
You can use the java api to add local users to LiveCycle.
If that code is in a servlet, you can use a HTTP post from .Net to invoke it.
If you create a custom component and deploy it as a service in LiveCycle, you'll be able to invoke it as a web service.
I will look into this. The only thing is, I was able to update, remove and search users using web services in .net, but I don't understand why can't I add a user using the same web service? The method of creating a local user is available in the web service! I even tried adding a user and I get the following error:
org.xml.sax.SAXException: Unable to create JavaBean of type com.adobe.idp.um.api.infomodel.User. Missing default constructor? Error was: java.lang.InstantiationException: com.adobe.idp.um.api.infomodel.User.
doesn't this mean it is trying to create a user?
Web service function:
public stringcreateLocalUser(UserlocalUser, string password);
<xsd:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="localUser" type="impl:User" />
<xsd:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="password" type="xsd:string" />
Any one reading this I have worked on it and it is possible:
The main things you will need are the following:
1. Create the web service reference:
2. Set credentials to log in to the Live Cycle
DirectoryManagerServiceService DirectoryManager = new DirectoryManagerServiceService();
DirectoryManager.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("LiveCycleUser","LiveCyclePassword");
3. Create an instance of the class of UserImpl newUser = new UserImpl();
4. You will need to give the following data:
newUser.canonicalName = " UserName";
newUser.userid = "UserName";
newUser.domainName = "DomainName";
newUser.principalType = "USER";
newUser.local = true;
newUser.locked = false;
newUser.system = false;
newUser.disabled = false;
5. Now call string NewUserID = DirectoryManager.createLocalUser(newUser, "12345678")
6. You should have now a new user in Live Cycle Rights Managment
I hope this helps you. This was written in C# and .net, but I am sure you can use this in any language J
Have a great day
Does anyone know if there is a way to do this via straight HTTP request, versus via Java or some other programming language. Like, is there a way to specify the UserImpl in the SOAP Envelope? Thanks.
