11:48 jonny_science hi
11:49 aldaris Hi
11:49 MegaMatt Hello
11:49 jonny_science Is it possible to change a user's password policy using the Rest API?
11:49 jonny_science version 11
11:49 jonny_science If so where should I look?
11:51 MegaMatt Isn’t the password policy defined in your IdRepo?
11:52 jonny_science yes there is one defined, but under certain conditions I would like change it to a different one.
11:54 MegaMatt So why can’t you change it at the user store? .. I think changing it through OpenAM is probably not a great idea…
11:57 jonny_science Why is changing it through OpenAm not a great idea?   I'm a dev, new to OpenAM.
11:58 MegaMatt Because your ID repo can be almost anything….
11:58 aldaris The data store is a very abstract way to deal with user/group/role identities, and it's not technology specific
11:58 aldaris things like password policies are very LDAP-specific
11:59 jjpp aldaris: not really. everything that has passwords might have policies to deal with them. :)
11:59 MegaMatt Yeah, but the point that we’re both trying to make is that the way they handle policies can be arbitrary ;)
11:59 jjpp that is true.
12:01 jjpp otoh, .. if that imaginary backend has a way to change active password policy by setting profile fields, there might be a way to set that policy via openam's rest api. it would still be a hack, though.
12:09 aldaris managing operational attributes with OpenAM usually does not result in anything good
12:11 jjpp well. I would say that there is a whole lot of things that openam is capable of. most of them tend to be wrong or not recommended in some sense. but one can still do many of those provided he can understand what happens and accepts that he is on (mostly) his own then. :)
12:12 jonny_science In this case OpenDJ is the backend.
12:13 MegaMatt I’m guessing you can use REST direct to DJ then
