Hi Dmitri:

Yes, we are evaluating ways of provisioning users and their group
memberships for Joiner, Mover, Leaver (JML) events.

We were thinking of your suggestion as an option and your reply was very
helpful.

Our expected real-time scenarios is probably 5 mins latency.

Is it viable to explore provisioning accounts/group to the destination tree
via LDAP calls and a subsequent cron job runs, identifies the newly
provisioned accounts, and applies modifications to create the IPA-specific
attributes? Or is the temp folder the only option?


Thank you for all your great help.
