Just wanted to inform about the status of the user defined group ids. We left it off hanging in the following situation:
Currently the key for groups is logically a composite: (groupName,groupType). There is a groupId (String), but for IDM to work properly, a fixed function must be abailable to split the groupId (String) into (groupName,groupType)
jBPM needs freely user defined group ids. So in the current API design, we are forced to introduce a jbpmGroupId <--> idmGroupId mapping table as part of jBPM. Since JBoss IDM's purpose is to become the unified component for identities, this looks kind of silly to me.
Is there an option that the freely user defined group id's still make it in the IDM component ?
