IDM Scripting – tip

When creating scripts (Javascript or VB Script) to be used within Netweaver Identity Management, make it a point to create and refer to global Constants/Variables rather than direct references to values that might change with time or an environment. This simple tip just makes it easier to manage and maintain scripts within your IDM configuration. Without global constants/variables, you would have to comb through each and every script that might possibly use or directly refer to a value that needs to be modified and then change it accordingly within each script. Instead, when you start using a global constant/variable that’s referenced within multiple scripts, you will be able to make the necessary modifications to just one central location and be done with the change; It greatly simplifies script maintenance.
