UserManagement / Authorization API: Create role => Missing role id in database

pmunerot2

Hello all,

As part of LiveCycle evaluation, I am trying to create roles automatically via the API. On the first invocation, the role gets created. For subsequent runs, I want to check that the role does not exist prior to creating it and thus I use the findRoles() api with a RoleSearchFilter: 

   RoleSearchFilter rsf = new RoleSearchFilter();

   // rsf.setMatchExactCriteria(false);

   rsf.setRoleId(roleName);

   // rsf.setRoleName(roleName);

   // rsf.setRoleType(RoleSearchFilter.ROLE_TYPE_ALL);

   // rsf.setResultsMax(1000);

   List<RoleImpl> foundRoles = amClient.findRoles(rsf); // amClient = AuthorizationManagerServiceClient instance

But the filter run never returns anything. Also, I have to force the roleId criteria otherwise LiveCycle complains: 'key must not be null'. Inspecting the database (EDCPRINCIPALENTITY table), I see that the created role has a null value for the canonical_name field (which apparently maps the role id in the principal's table).

If I update this field for testing, then the filter works.

So now: What can I do to fix this ? I would like to forcefully update the created role by setting the canonical name (via the principal api) but there's no such "update" API.

Any idea?  The issue is that any call to role / permissions lookup APIs fails (I guess because of not finding the role in the first place). For example: amClient.getAllRolePermissions(roleId)

Regards,

Using: LiveCycle ES4 - Version: 11.0.0, GM Service Pack Version: N/A Patch Version: N/A

I'm able to get all the roles using below code :

RoleSearchFilter rsf = new RoleSearchFilter();

rsf.setRoleType(RoleSearchFilter.ROLE_TYPE_ALL);

rsf.setResultsMax(1000);

List roleList = amClient.findRoles(rsf);
Iterator rit = roleList.iterator();
String roleId1 = "";
while(rit.hasNext())
{
// Obtain the role identifier
roleId1 = ((Role)rit.next()).getId();

System.out.println("Role Found  " + (roleId1));

}

Output :

Role Found  BASIC_ROLE_ADMIN_CONSOLE

Role Found  BASIC_ROLE_APPLICATION_ADMINISTRATOR

Role Found  BASIC_ROLE_DOCUMENT_SERVICES_ADMINISTRATOR

Role Found  Document Upload Application Users

Role Found  AdobeFormsAdmin

Role Found  WF.PROCESS.ADMIN

Could you please tell me how you are creating roles using API, to completely test your scenerio ?

Thanks,
