CAMIDs. What am I missing?
« on: 27 Mar 2012 05:05:53 pm »
Hi all,

I've been spinning my wheels on this too long...

How do you get the CAMIDs of users that aren't currently in the Content Store? We're planning on using either the SDK or MetaManager (both currently licensed) to administer security going forward. In the case where users aren't already assigned to a group/role in Cognos Connection, I can't come up with an easy/dynamic way to get their CAMIDs.

Anybody care to share how you've address this?

Thank you,
Chris

You can see their CAMID if you go to the Admin Console - Security tab, expand your authentication provider namespace, then go into the properties of the user in the authentication provider. The "View the search path, ID and URL" link on the right will display the user's CAMID in the Search Path.

Regards,

MF.
Meep!

Thank you for the reply. I should have worded my question a little differently. I need a way to get the CAMID without going to Cognos Connection. Our initial intention is to use BSP's MetaManager to assign the Users to the Groups, and our scripts would come from our end users, who don't have the ability to look up the CAMIDs on the portal.

You can do this with the SDK.

Great, thank you. I'll have to see what the SDK can do for us. I did find one of those articles but the other one is very helpful.

Thank you,
Chris
