Validation Framework: Bug in 7.2 Version


we are currently upgrading from SAP NW IDM 7.1 to 7.2 and encountered a problem with validation extension provided by SAP. Maybe this is a bug an should be filed as OSS message.

The Validation API delivers a list of IdmValueChanges to the custom validation class (I've provided an example implementation in the attachment).

I've now created an UI task containing


P_COMMENT (initially empty)

P_INITIAL_PASSWORD (already set, encrypted)

I've hooked up the debugger to get this:

You can see the instances of those IdmValueChanges. Each of those are holding an mOperation Attribute which indicates the operation performed on this attribute.

Also, there are constants defined in the class IdmValueChange:






So all of those attributes are considered to be an OPERATION_PROPERTY_CHANGE, although those should be like this:



This is how it was in 7.1 version.

I've also added some debug code to see the operations:

Do you encounter the same problems?

best regards

    I am also facing similar problem

    IdMValueChange[] changes = validate.getChangeList();

    for (int i = 0; i < changes.length; i++) {

    IdMValueChange aIdmValue = changes[i];

    String aAttr = aIdmValue.getAttributeName();

    if (aAttr.equalsIgnoreCase("MXREF_MX_ROLE")) {

    loc.infoT("Operation type :"+ aIdmValue.getOperation());



    Here Operation Type always comes as 3 irrespective of if i add/remove role from UI.

    Is it a bug ? Our environment is IDM 7.2 SP7
