Hi all,

We are facing an issue when on user creation through Adaxes web service.

The problem is, we have special characters (ampersand) in some company name : e.g M&L

I'm escaping ampersand character in spml request as following :

<attr name="company" xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:DSML:2:0:core">
          <value>M&L</value>
        </attr>

And get following erros in :

  • xml response :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Envelope xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <Body>
    <addResponse status="failure" error="customError" xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:SPML:2:0">
      <errorMessage>The name reference is invalid. (Server: eu.loi.net)</errorMessage>
    </addResponse>
  </Body>
  • Adaxes server event log :
Command Processor 'Business Rules' has set an incorrect state 'OPERATION_STATE_PROCESSING' to the following command: Create 'SAWYER Tom (eu.loi.net\EU90-Other Objects\Users)'. Full Name: 'X', First Name: 'Tom', Last Name: 'SAWYER', Description: 'User created via Adaxes SPML provider.', User Logon Name (pre-Windows 2000): 'tsawyer', User Logon Name: 'Tom.SAWYER@loccitane.com', Password Last Set: '-1', Company: 'M&L', Department: 'IT/IT INFRA-SYSTEMS-NETWORK', Office: 'FR Factory Manosque Grandes Terres', Manager: 'john.smith2@loccitane.com', Employee ID: 'YYYY', Employee Type: 'Permanent', Mobility Policy: 'False', Category: 'Office User', Name: 'SAWYER Tom', Display Name: 'SAWYER Tom', Password: '******', Extension Attribute 9: 'O.k6qC[T', Country: 'FR', City: 'Manosque'.

   at Softerra.Adaxes.SpmlWebService.Executors.BaseExecutor.Execute(Request request)

We use this company string for years with no problem through Adaxes form.

Is there another way to pass this special character in my request ?

Thank you in advance

Regards

Hello,

The error is caused by an invalid value of a property. According to the record in Adaxes Event Log, you passed a username into the Manager property (Manager: 'john.smith2@loccitane.com'). You need to replace the username with a valid Distinguished Name of the user that should be a manager of the new user account. For example: CN=John Smith,OU=IT,OU=Departments,DC= loccitane,DC=com.
To copy the distinguished name of the user:

  1. Launch Adaxes Administration Console.
  2. Navigate to and right-click the user.
  3. Click the arrow next to Copy option.
  4. Click Copy DN.
0

Oh my bad..Sorry!
You're right. It worked well with the fqdn instead of upn..

Is it possible to use another value for manager attribute (GUID,...) ?

Many thanks for your help

No, only DN is supported by the Active Directory schema.

Due to some of the systems we have, we must limit our logon names to 8 characters. When I set the Value Length to Maximum 8, the result when creating a new account ... get a popup "Invalid Value Length". Is there a way to autopopulate with only 8 characters?
