Improved PRD Integration

IDM Validator 1.2
UserApplication Connector
User Interface, etc.

After setting up a UserApp connection and getting PRDs tested for the first time a few things would really help make this much simpler.

First, allow browsing to the PRD. Designer doesn't provide the DN anywhere convenient, and even finding the CN can be a challenge. Since browsing the vault is already an option (for a different type of connection, of... more »

Create a Windows Service to Run Java Process

The current validator runs a dos batch file that starts the Java Process and all the magic happens. The issue I have is it is easy to accidentally close the DOS box and than you have a mess with the interface open and no process to preform the operations. There has been a user who has provided this as an add on yet each revision has broken it and I am not aware if you can still obtain this for the most recent versions.... more »

Add RegEx Matcher to Every Action Allows Negative Testing

Adding a RegEx Matcher to every Action would allow us to override the default behavior (if desired) of an action so we could evaluate the result message (eg thrown exception) to determine the pass/fail status of that action rather than assuming that all errors are "failed tests". This essentially would allow every action to also function as a true assert, instead of just adopting the default interpretation of the developer... more »

Complimentary Functions

When you copy a function to a complimentary fuinction, for example, Copy an Add Object and change it to a Delete Object, the corresponding fields should be maintained. The DN from the add object should become the DN of the delete object (right now it puts the class name in when you do that).

Integrate Analyzer

The Analyzer product seems to not be used much even though everybody that has access to the Advanced Edition has a license for it. It would be great to tie the existing connections that validator has and allow analyzer to take that connection information and connect to the various connections.

Or it would be great to tie in new functionality into validator that would perform the Analyzer functionality. Compare values... more »

Include ECMA Script functions from drivers

This idea came up in some discussions at Brainshare.

 

The concept would be to be able to import ECMA scripts from drivers and then have those functions available in an Action for a validator test. So you could pass in variables to an ECMA/javascript script, get the result and assign it to another variable.

 

Additionally, we could just allow a javascript action so javascript could be included in any test.

Add Xpath Assertion Actions

It would be nice to have actions that allow you to perform assertions on Xpath results without first setting a variable.

I know you can run "Use XPath and Set Variable", then do an assertion on that variable. However, "Assert XPath Results Contains" and "Assert XPath Results Not Contains" would be very useful, by which you could specify an Xpath expression and do an assertion all in one step.

Use case: I make a SOAP... more »

Assert LDAP Filter is true/not true

We have a case, where we have Sendmail objects that have an attribute, serialNumber, we can query on via LDAP. This would return a list of 1-N objects back.

I do not think we can do multivalued local variables, nor loop over them, but we need to

1) Ensure they are all deleted.
2) Ensure that at least 1 or more are created.

This seems like a new assertion of LDAP Filter returns, with sub options of:
0-n values... more »

Make test suite a Designer Package for drivers

There are test suites that show off the various connectors. However, each driver NetIQ ships should have an Add On Package that has a DirXML-Resource with a text/json or maybe json/validator DirXML-ContentType that stores the test suite,

Then just as you can read the connectors out of the IDV, also look for DirXMl-Resources whose DirXML-ContentType is validator/json and read them back and import the test suite. Buffer... more »

Allow run individual actions

When developing a test, often I find I want to just re-run one specific action.

Could we get a Run icon, inside a test, so that we could run just an "Assert" or a "Create Object" instead of having to run through the entire test. Often I find I disable all the other stuff just to run this one item again and again.

Only run the tick box selected items if the button is pressed. This would go in the toolbar inside... more »
