11.1 About Extended User Attributes Services

A typical Extended User Attributes service entry is similar to the following:

UserService 0 null null null !csUnableToAddExtendedAttr(dName)
  • The first line indicates the service name: ADD_EXTENDED_USER_ATTRIBUTES

  • The second line lists the service's attributes:

    • Service class: UserService

    • Access level: 0

    • Template: null (none used)

    • Service type: null (not a subservice)

    • Subjects Notified: null

    • Error message: Unable to add new extended attributes for user

  • The remainder of the entry lists the service's actions, each line designating one action:

    • action type: for example, 3, indicating a Java method.

    • action name: for example, modifyExtendedUserAttributes

    • action parameters: for example, IuserExtendedAttribute. If no parameters are specified, double-colons (::) are included.

    • action control mask: for example, 8, indicating the end of a database transation. The double-colon indicator (::) can also be included.

    • action error message: for example, null if no message is available.

Each element of the service's action is separated by a colon (:).


All services have at least one required parameter. The IdcService parameter takes the name of the service as its argument. If other parameters are required, they are noted in the description of the service.

See "Customizing Services" for details about a service's attributes and actions.
