Focal Point Banner


As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hello,

i know there have been similar posts for a bulk user load into MRE. But i can not use the web service. I have to load about 400 users into MRE with the same profile and the same domain, we use a SQL Server 2005 for our repository. Has anybody done this with WEBFOCUS Code before?? I will get the ID,s Names in an excel Sheet.

Regards

Christian

Christian,
Take a look at:

The Following TechMemo

I strongly suggest against doing direct database inserts due to the unpredictable manor in which it can impact your environment if you don't do it properly. I've seen intermittent problems go on for over half a year that were difficult to isolate, that eventually came down to compounded issues created by direct database inserts.

With that said, if you HAVE to do it this way, if you stick to the SQL queries IBI uses you're less likely to get yourself into trouble. You still have questions about NULL vs. blank, etc, which seem inconsequential but can impact the way the software performs.

I'd suggest that in addition to using the SQL statements from IBI, you also create a test user from the admin GUI and verify that after using your SQL inserts the bulk load users are identical to the manually created user. Specifically look for fields that are null vs blank.

Also, all the database queries for all of the different databases can be found here:

One other thing to note is that you'll need to clear the cache in the WebFOCUS Admin Console, or disable the caching under:

WF Admin Console -> Client Settings -> MR Security -> Advanced

Before your new users will show up or work in the GUI. Alternatively you can restart your application server.
