Triggers: Script Tips

Triggers: Script Tips

Here we will show you some tips about how to use scripts.

For more information you can visit the official documentation of Soffid

Write into a sync-server log

System.out.println("what you want......");

Recover data from a Soffid object when synchronizing

* source only can be used in outgoing triggers. That object will be Soffid format.

* newObject and oldObject can be used in outgoing and incoming triggers. Those objects will be target system format in outgoing triggers and will be Soffid format in incoming triggers.

Recover data from Soffid object to synchronize

Recover user name

name = source{"userName"};
Recover a custom attribute

Recover company (company could be a user custom attribute defined on metadata page)

comp = source{"attributes"}{"company"};
Recover the attribute value that will be sent
no = newObject{"userName"};
gn = newObject{"givenName"};
Recover the attribute value from the select

That info comes from the target system. In a synchronization process, the first thing that Soffid does, is to query if the account exists on the target system.

no = oldObject{"userName"};
gn = oldObject{"givenName"};

Use  existing services


Create a new Soffid object

mailDomain = new com.soffid.iam.api.MailDomain();
newUser = new com.soffid.iam.api.User();
newRol = new com.soffid.iam.api.Role();

Loop an object list

for(role : roleList){
  out.print(" Role: " + role.roleName + "\n");

Recover response

if (response!=null) {
  for (o : response.getObjects()) {
    if (o!=null && o{"result"}!=null) {

Send a text email 

serviceLocator.getMailService().sendTextMail("", "Subject", "Mail message");

Send a HTML mail 

serviceLocator.getMailService().sendHtmlMailToActors(<to>, <subject>, <html-body>);
