IDXML – There is no profile configured for this kind of user


24/11/2006

IDXML can be cool. It can also cause one to question one’s future in front of a keyboard.

Take, for example, the error message: “There is no profile configured for this kind of user”. This is usually a very helpful message that tips you off that you have a typo in the DN value of the UID parameter.

But if you are getting this message and you are sure that your request looks perfect there can be another simple explanation for the error: your HTTP client might be sending the request to the wrong application.

That’s right – if you send a perfect Modify User request to /identity/oblix/apps/objservcenter/bin/objservcenter.cgi instead of /identity/oblix/apps/userservcenter/bin/userservcenter.cgi, you will find that ‘There is no profile configured for this kind of user’…

Don’t let this happen to you. Life is short.
