    Hi Team 

    we are using the PD admin rest API to fetch all the user from the ISAM system 

    Method : Post
    POST_DATA: { "user_id":"The user id", "user_pwd":"The userpassword", "commands": [
    "user list * 0"
    ] }

    But the API response is very slow ,For Fetching the complete user List of 4 Lakh User , It is taking more than an Hour , Could you please help us with the following 
    1) Is there any way to  improve the performance For example does it support concept like Page Size / Offset 
    2) Is there any alternate approach to fetch all the user from ISAM system

    Narottam,

     

    Unfortunately the pdadmin interface is not the best option when you want to return so many users.  There are no real options which you can use to improve the performance.  You do however have a number of different options, namely:

    1. You can write a Java program which uses the ISVA Direct Registry API to access the user records;
    2. You can go directly to the user registry;
    3. You can use the SCIM API which is provided as a part of the Advanced Access Control offering.

     

    I hope that this helps.

    Again thank you very much for your response !

    Narottam,

     

    I don't have any data available, but it should perform much better than the pdadmin Web Server.  You also have much greater control over which user records are returned.

     

    I hope that this helps.

    Hi Scott 
    Thanks again for quick reply , Could you please confirm whether we can retrieve the GSO cred with SCIM API https://<runtime_listening_address>:<port>/scim/Users

    Narottam,

     

    The GSO credentials are not accessible via the SCIM API.

    Hi Scott 

    Thanks a lot for your help and pointer , we were able to configure SCIM API and get response on all the endpoints /Users,/Groups ,//Schemas and /ResourceTypes 

    But in User schema /scim/Schemas/urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:isam:1.0:User we are not able to see any Groups attribute , Also /Users is not returning as the Group assigned to a User which are visible in /Group End point  , Could you please help us confirm whether is this as designed or we are missing something in our configuration .

    Regards
