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.

[SOLVED by case] Direct update of WF Repository?

We have found by matching WF Oracle respository WF_MRUSERS to Active Directory that we have almost 100 users that are no longer active.

I've noticed that the Oracle tables use the CASCADE DELETE on the tables with foreign keys to WF_MRUSERS. I can easily write an Oracle DELETE statement to get rid of the inactive users, my question is if this is safe or do I have to go through the Web Interface? The Oracle part is pretty straight forward, but I do not know what WebFocus may be doing "under the covers" using the Web User Administration Console.

Any help appreciated, Thanks.

Our WF Technical rep strongly suggests that we use the Administrative GUI rather than direct update to the backend repository. He says there are some folder names and other "stuff" in the background that need to be maintained via the GUI.

Dave,
You can safely do this with WebFOCUS Client web service calls if you wish.

Take a look at MREDeleteUser.

Web Services Manual

If you don't already program in Java, or .NET VB.net is pretty easy to pickup and Microsoft has Visual Basic Express 2010 for free.

You can do everything you need to do with the free version of Visual Basic Express.
