HowTo make Task "Copy to New User"

Hi all

I'd like to implement an UI task "Copy existing user to new user" but I have no idea how this can be done using the MMC.

It should behave similar as the SU01 or UME copy-user tasks, I think everybody has used them before.

Any help or hint is appreciated.

    Hi Michael

    Maybe with a ToIdentityStore pass.

    In the job in the UI you give a field "NEW_ID".

    Then you do the To Pass like this




    (and so on)

    changetype add

    So you copy all selected fields to a new user with the new ID:

    • "what rights does the new guy need?" "Same as mine"

      This is a situation I come accross close to everytime someone new starts, be it internally and related to our testing systems or be it at the customer. Am I the only one?

      In any case on topic: I wanted to pull this one back to the top of the list because I'm wondering if anyone came up with an acceptable solution yet. Or does anyone know if this will be easier in upcomming releases of IdM?

      The only solution I have for now is a very crude system where some values of one user get copied to another user but it's no where close to as refined and secure as it should be.

    Task is contained in RDS-package for IdM:

    Hopefully this basic functionality will be available in the standard shipment soon.
