Using SailPoint IdentityNow v3 API’s with PowerShell

The SailPoint IdentityNow SaaS product is evolving. I’ve previously posted about integrating with the IdentityNow API’s using PowerShell;

IdentityNow now has v3 API’s which are essentially the v2 and non-Published API’s with the added benefit of being able to obtain an oAuth token from a new oAuth Token endpoint.… [Keep reading] “Using SailPoint IdentityNow v3 API’s with PowerShell”

Leveraging v1, v2 and non-Published SailPoint IdentityNow API’s with PowerShell

UPDATE: 18 Dec 2018 Please see this new post on 
accessing v3 / non-published SailPoint 
IdentityNow API's using PowerShell.
The details in this post will still work for v1 
& v2 API's.

This post supersedes (see above) my previous posts on leveraging the IdentityNow API’s in relation to API Authentication/Authorization;

Using this Compass document as my guide (which takes a bit of finding) I’ve automated the process of being able to use PowerShell to leverage the non versioned/published API’s.… [Keep reading] “Leveraging v1, v2 and non-Published SailPoint IdentityNow API’s with PowerShell”

How LUIS can help BOTs in understanding natural language

Since bots are evolving, you need a mechanism to better understand what user wants from his/her language and take actions or respond to user queries appropriately. In the days of increasing automation, bots can certainly help provided they are backed by tools to understand user language both naturally and contextually.
Azure Cognitive Services has an API that can help to identify what user wants, extracts concepts and entities from a sentence (user input) using an intelligent service name Language Understanding Intelligent Service (LUIS).… [Keep reading] “How LUIS can help BOTs in understanding natural language”

API Mocking for Developers

API is the most common practice to exchange messages in a microservices architecture world. There are actually two different approaches for API development. One is called Model First and the other is called Design First. Usually the latter, AKA Spec-Driven Development (SDD), is preferred over the former.
When is the Model First approach useful? If you are running legacy API applications, this would be a good example of using this approach. If those systems are well documented, API documents can be easily extracted by tools like Swagger which is now renamed to Open API.… [Keep reading] “API Mocking for Developers”

Automate the archiving of your CloudHub application logs

CloudHub is MuleSoft’s integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that enables the deployment and management of integration solutions in the cloud. Runtime Manager, CloudHub’s management tool,  provides an integrated set of logging tools that allow support and operations staff to monitor and troubleshoot application logs of deployed applications.
Currently, application log entries are kept for 30 days or until they reach a max size of 100 MB. Often we are required to keep these logs for greater periods of time for auditing or archiving purposes.… [Keep reading] “Automate the archiving of your CloudHub application logs”

[Updated] Yammer group and user export via Yammer API to JSON, then converted to CSV

 
Update: awesome pro-tip
Big shout out to Scott Hoag (@ciphertxt on Twitter) with this pro-tip which will save you having to read this blog post. Yes, you don’t know what you don’t know.
Part of a Yammer network merge (which I am writing a blog post about.. WIP), you would lose data, posts, files etc as that can’t come across. You can however do an export of all that data to, depending on how much there is to export, usually a large .zip file. This is where Scott showed me the light. In that export, there are also two .csv files that contain all the user info in the first, and in the second all the group info. Knowing this, run that export process and you probably don’t need to read the rest of this blog post. #FacePalm.
HOWEVER, and that is a big however for a reason. The network export process does not export what members there are in groups in that groups.csv file. So if you want to to export Yammer groups and all their members, the below blog post is one way of doing that process, just a longer way… 


Yammer network merges are not pretty. I’m not taking a stab at you (Yammer developers and Microsoft Office 365 developers), but, I’m taking a stab.
There should be an option to allow at least group and group member data to be brought across when there is a network merge. Fair enough not bringing any data across as that can certainly be a headache with the vast amount of posts, photos, files and various content that consumes a Yammer network.
However, it would be considerably much less painful for customers if at least the groups and all their members could be merged. It would also make my life a little easier not having to do it.
Let me set the stage her and paint you a word picture. I’m no developer. Putting that out there from the start. I am good at problem solving though and I’m a black belt at finding information online (surfing the interwebs). So, after some deliberation, I found the following that might help with gathering group and user data, to be used for Yammer network merges.
