Which groups are associated with a domain

Hi,

I'd like to know if there is a way to find out which groups are associated with a specific domain in MR Admin.

My problem is that we were two admins for the R&D period and now I am the single admin on the server and I figured out that some groups may be doubled.

So I'd like ot list the groups per domain and then restructure the whole thing.

Thanks,

Pascal,

You can view the domains and groups in MRE User Administration (but then you already know that).

You may also create flat file extracts of the MRE information by executing Drive:\ibi\WebFOCUS76\utilities\mrextract.bat (this produces flat files containing data about domains and programs - I think it will also do domains, groups and users.

Alternatively, you can browse file Drive:\ibi\WebFOCUS76\basedir\user.htm, which is where all the domain, group and user information is stored.

I hope this helps.

If you set up MR to use RDBMS then you could query the WF_GRPDOMTB table.

I am very curious about where "set up MR to use RDBMS" is documented. I have found only two links on Tech Support that discuss "WF_GRPDOMTB":

How to setup Managed Reporting REALM Driver for MYSQL

How to migrate users when using Realm Driver with RDBMS

Thanks very much Chanah. Too bad the domain information cannot also be stored in a RDBMS table.

I'll have to make sure that the Master file still works for 7.6

I believe that someone after you posted an update for 7.6 and it seemed to work well.

Thanks for the info. I will look into it.

I tried mrextract.bat and it didn't gave much more than MRadmin console.

That didn't help very much... Tedious task to analyze this document.

it's a bummer that IBI did not build a cross-reference tool.

I couldn't agree with you more...

They claim that in the next big release, the whole security and architecture is being revamped and it'll be easy to write your own queries to get this information.

The Groups extract file provides that info. It's mfd is given as:
IBIMRGRP.MAS Master File
$-----------------------------------------------------------------------
$ IBIMRGRP.MAS
$-----------------------------------------------------------------------
FILE=IBIMRGRP, SUFFIX=COM
SEGNAME=IBIMRGRP, SEGTYPE=S0
FIELD=GROUP_HREF, ALIAS=E01, ACUTAL=A13, USAGE=A13, $
FIELD=GROUP_DESC, ALIAS=E02, ACUTAL=A256, USAGE=A256, $
FIELD=DOMAIN_HTM, ALIAS=E03, ACUTAL=A21, USAGE=A21, $

in the "Managed Reporting Extract Utility" chapter of the MR Admin manual.
These are basically junction records, with one instance per group-domain association. So

table file IBIMRGRP print GROUP_DESC by DOMAIN_HTM by GROUP_HREF ...

should produce the list you need.
