Identity Manager calling ECMA Script from Health Job causing Exception

This document (7014364) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Identity Manager 4.0


Calling an ECMA Script from the Driver Health Job configuration causes an exception when the health job is running.

ECMA Script:
function HealthGreen( ) {
    var s1 = "Green Health";
    return s1;
HealthGreen( );
When the Health Job is being processed it will result in:

3866531584 DVRS: [2013/12/12  1:11:33.963] Health Job JT:: Processing object '\SLES11IDM\system\driverset1\EntitlementDriver'

Modifying the Driver Health Configuration Action in iManager will fix the issue.


The reason is that when Designer is deploying the Health Driver configuration it will set the action DN (ECMA Script) incorrectly.

Created with iManager:
    <execute-ecmascript resource-dn="Health.EntitlementDriver.driverset1.system"/>

Created with Designer:
    <execute-ecmascript resource-dn="Health.EntitlementDriver.driverset1.SLES11IDM"/>

This have been reported to engineering.
