[SOLVED] Obtaining user email
Hi all,

I'm trying to make an 'email-me' button. ( Managed Reporting )

But I'm unable to retrieve the user's emailaddress. ( yes, we do supply it when adding users )

It's not in the &IBIMR_ parameters I have.
Perhaps I can add it ( pass etc.. )
But I'm unable to find a complete list of all parameters that are passable?
only : "Useful variables include".


I'm able to get it using this:
http:///ibi_apps/WFServlet?IBFS1_action=getUser&IBFS_name=dave


But I need it in FEX, not script.
Although I know a workaround to get it, I find it very odd that I can not query the repository nor find it in the internal parameters?


greets,Dave

If you add it to the user via the security centre, then you'll locate it in UOA_USERS.

However, if you are using external authentication then I am not sure if this is brought in to the repository or not.

The email does get populated with external security, at least with our external security set up.

Thanks so far...

We use single-signon with WIA ( AD ), whatever you call it.

Windows-account.

But we do explicitly add users to Webfocus.
We, manually, provide email-address there.

only thing to do is find out how to access UOA_USERS.
[ have to talk to the admin's ]

Hi Dave,

UOA_USERS is a table withn the WF Repository, so it depends on what RDBMS you use - If you use the standard Derby then you would need a JDBC adapter licence otherwise the adapter licence for the RDBMS that you use.

Also see if "Synchrobise User Information" is available on the release that you are using.

Is there any prospect of you upgrading? Or are you planning on sticking on 8.0.09?

Hi, Tony,

thanks for the swift reply.

I think the repository is in SQL-server somewhere. ( or even Teradata ).
I'll have to talk to the admins.



We're right in the middle of upgrading to 8203
Client and Servers installed, but some trouble getting it up and running. ( authorisation, dmz, ports, ip's etc. )

Then we're going to 'sandbox' it for a while, see what we can do.
After that's we'll move to 8203.

I use the word 'move' because we will not migrate 'as is'.
New autorisations, new portals, etc.etc.

We did a migration from 7 to 8, and now we're stuck with a lot of legacy WF7 stuff. E.g. autorisation based on Domains etc.

Great oppurtunity to get rid of that...
