How to create a user with future start date

Hi Guys,

What is the best practice when you use the HR LDAP Extract program to create a user in SAP IdM and target systems with a future date?

I have declared the WRITE_FUTURE_DATED_HIRES = TRUE and replaced the script sap_importTimeValues with sap_cutDate.

I need attributes such as MX_LASTNAME, MX_FIRSTNAME to create the user in ACtive Directory.

Anyone done this before and could give some advice as I am still testing?

Regards,

Ridouan

    Hi Ridouan,

    Not sure what else to do except make sure that Valid from/to are populated so that the IDM tasks with Date related validity from the framework will execute.

    Sorry if you already considered and accounted for this.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Just let IdM write the mandatory attributes without the pending value.

    I think last time I did this, I had two event tasks in Staging Id Store; one for creating the user to Productive Id Store (cuts the date off mandatory attr values) and the other one (standard) for updating the user in Productive Id Store.

    All of the config was done based on the SAP Note that I guess you're already following(?).

    regards, Tero
