PIM 5.6.1 – Release Notes

May 11th 2021

PhenixID Identity Manager 5.6.1 improves the stability, compatibility and security of your solution, and is recommended for all installations.

1. Post IM 5.6.0 updates

Some of the controls updated in PIM version 5.6.0, for WCAG as well as Look and Feel, had a few pixels wrong in some scenarios. This has been corrected in PIM 5.6.1.

The updated controls are:

  • Date selector
  • Single value select
  • Linked list
  • Combo box

The updates has been made to forms used in Create, Edit, Predefined search and Self Service

2. Added functionality to PIPFilter

PIPFilter is used to send data to PIP using REST. Before PIM 5.6.1 we always sent all data in a form to PIP. With PIM 5.6.1 you can now select what data to be sent. There are two new parameters that can be used, either as policy or as tab parameter.

# For PIM 5.6.1 we added support to specify what controls to send to PIP. The controls not sent will be handled by PIM.
# There are two policies to choose from. If both are used and there is a conflict, ATTRIBUTES_TO_SEND will precede. 
filter.PIPFilter.ATTRIBUTES_NOT_SEND= add controls comma separated
filter.PIPFilter.ATTRIBUTES_TO_SEND= add controls comma separated

For more information about the PIPFilter, please read PSD1162

3. Themes and DirX

If you are running version 8.9 of DirX and have object classes or attributes that is not part of the DirX schema then IM will fail. Scenario where this can be the case is when using MultiDB.
This has now been corrected.

4. Change path of IM app and right click images

By default the path to the IM application is /im. If you change the name of the IM application to something else than /im then right click images in the result set will fail to be located.
This has now been corrected.

5. UI update for some Custom Controls in Tab Designer

To make it easier to position controls in a form some changes has been made to height and appearance. This only affect the IM Configurator and Tab Designer. See picture below.
