Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Resources Reference


The Shell Script adapter implements actions as shell script files that execute on the resource host. These scripts must be written to run on the shell that has been configured for the account running the scripts on the resource host.

Scripts should follow conventions and exit with a return code of 0, which indicates success. Returning a non-zero code (chosen by the script writer) indicates the operation may not have been correctly completed.

Scripts may output text to the standard error or standard output stream. Depending on the nature of the operation, the context of the operation, and the type of failure, the text may be displayed in the results for that operation.

For the getUser and getAllUsers operations, this text is parsed in the standard output stream to determine the attributes of each user.

The following types of environment variables can be exported to the scripts:

The following code example illustrates an example-generated environment:


WSRSRC_Host=’’; export WSRSRC_Host
WSRSRC_Port=’22’; export WSRSRC_Port
WSRSRC_Login_User=’root’; export WSRSRC_Login_User
WSRSRC_password=’074B7E28F5927C90:1C65216:108540A69DE:-7FFD|zGEBDGD3VRs=’; export WSRSRC_password
WSRSRC_Login_Shell_Prompt=’]#’; export WSRSRC_Login_Shell_Prompt
WSRSRC_Root_User=’root’; export WSRSRC_Root_User
WSRSRC_credentials=’074B7E28F5927C90:1C65216:108540A69DE:-7FFD|zGEBDGD3VRs=’; export WSRSRC_credentials
WSRSRC_Root_Shell_Prompt=’]#’; export WSRSRC_Root_Shell_Prompt"
WSRSRC_Connection_Type=’SSH’; export WSRSRC_Connection_Type"
WSRSRC_Maximum_Connections=’10’; export WSRSRC_Maximum_Connections"
WSRSRC_Connection_Idle_Timeout=’900’; export WSRSRC_Connection_Idle_Timeout"
WSRSRC_Display_Name_Attribute=’accountId’; export WSRSRC_Display_Name_Attribute"
WSRSRC_NAME=’ShellTest’; export WSRSRC_NAME"
WSRSRC_ID=’#ID#074B7E28F5927C90:B122A1:108E3E4CFAA:-7FFC’; export WSRSRC_ID"
WSRSRC_TYPE=’Resource’; export WSRSRC_TYPE"
WSRSRC_CLASS=’class com.waveset.object.Resource’; export WSRSRC_CLASS"

Generally, if an attribute’s value is null, you can omit the corresponding environment variable instead of having the value of a zero-length string.
