20:09 jjpp hi.
20:09 jjpp https://bugster.forgerock.org/jira/browse/OPENAM-9651 has a comment that says "Triage: ssoadm is being superseded in OpenAM 14." -- is there anything more about that somewhere?
20:10 MegaMatt Search for amster
20:14 jjpp hm, okay, thanks for the tip.
20:18 jjpp although, i can only find bugreports agains amster (and some against ssoadm which now clearly say it is going to be replaced). is there a page or talk or perhaps even a bug that explains the rationale?
20:19 jjpp s/agains/against
20:19 MegaMatt Probabaly not much until 14 is released officially
20:19 jjpp hm, okay.
20:19 jjpp is it going to be something more like dsconfig?
20:20 MegaMatt In what way?
20:20 jjpp with interactive mode, if you don't specify anything more specific as parameters?
20:20 MegaMatt I believe it will have an interactive mode — although don’t quote me on this, but I’m pretty sure it does, or will… And it will be able to used from machines that are not running the instance that you want to configure
20:21 MegaMatt OPENAM-10943 is a good hint that interactive mode will exist
20:24 jjpp ookay.. it seems a bit different than dsconfig's "here are your choices, pick a number" menus. will it need running openam or will it connect to config store directly?
20:25 MegaMatt It talks to AM via REST interfaces
20:25 MegaMatt The interactive mode might have help screens, but yeah, it’s different from pick X style I think
20:26 MegaMatt I don’t really know though, I don’t know much about it yet
20:27 jjpp will the parameters and command names be somewhat compatible with ssoadm's? :)
20:27 jjpp well.. we will find out then, though.. :)
20:27 MegaMatt No idea ;)
20:27 MegaMatt I know it’s supposed to have all the functionality, but I don’t know how the params and commands look
20:27 * jjpp thinks . o O ( have to go and read some bedtime story, it seems.. afk for a while.  )
20:56 jjpp hmyeah. we have a few thousand lines of shell as a installer and configuring system. replacing ssoadm would change that a bit. then again the client has a new architect who seems to be a bit afraid of openam (people are usually afraid of things they do not understand) and forgerock's recent steps have been anything but encouraging as well..
20:56 MegaMatt ssoadm will still be there
20:57 jjpp but not updated and have some weird bugs that are not fixed "because it will be replaced with amster" as we can read from jira?
20:57 MegaMatt probably true, but if it’s working for you now, it should still work
20:58 MegaMatt And allow you to move things over to REST or amster slowly
20:58 jjpp that is probably true.
