Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

"I'm trying to create a pushback rule on password changes on a eDir2eDir driver with a distribution password. I have pushback rules working on regular attributes, but I can't get it to work here. Is this possible to do?"

And here's the response from Jeff Johnson ...

Solution

Here is a rule I have on the publisher-matching of an eDir2eDir driver. If a certain criteria is met on this match, the password is pushed back. This may help you.

	<rule>
	<description>If match found on ADD force Vault password back to NOS if Staff or Faculty</description>
	<conditions>
		<or>
			<if-op-attr mode="nocase" name="StudentADD" op="equal">true</if-op-attr>
		</or>
		<or>
			<if-op-attr mode="nocase" name="eduPersonAffiliation" op="equal">staff</if-op-attr>
			<if-op-attr mode="nocase" name="eduPersonAffiliation" op="equal">faculty</if-op-attr>
		</or>
	</conditions>
	<actions>
		<do-set-src-password>
			<arg-string>
				<token-dest-attr class-name="User" name="nspmDistributionPassword"/>
			</arg-string>
		</do-set-src-password>
		<do-break/>
	</actions>
</rule>
