How to run a metacommand recursively

I have just added a metacommand to User class in order to set some attributes.
How can I run this command for each user?

set cUser = getRoot.User
For Each oUser in cUser
.....?

Re: How to run a metacommand recursively

Hi,

 

since you created a MetaCommand that set Attributes of the User MetaClass, you probably used a macro to do that ( a macro called from the MetaCommand).

 

i think the easiest way is to call this macro from your script:

 

oUser = MegaEnv.GetMacro("Your macro here").

 

By the way, you can use the function SetProp() to set the Attribute values you want on each user

Re: How to run a metacommand recursively

Hello Andrea,

 

can you explain us what you want to do ?

I do not understand what a metaCommand can be usefull for on the "User" metaclass.

 

I what you want to do is a mass treatment to set values for specific attributes of the user metaclass, you only need a simple script in the script editor. No metaCommand is needed. Your script should then look like :

For each objUser in getCollection("User")
  objUser.SetProp "<myAttribute>", "MyValue"
Next

 

If this is not what you want to do, please be more precise :-)

Re: How to run a metacommand recursively

I have added in MetaClass User a new attribute (usorganization) and a MetaCommand that run a Java Macro, that getting data from LDAP sets this attribute.

I would like to recursively run it for all the users.

I tried:

set cUser = getRoot.User
For Each oUser in cUser
oUser=MegaEnv.GetMacro("MyMacro")
Next
but I get this error:
Script Debug : Error at Line 5 : Object doesn't support this property or method: 'oUser'

Thank you

Re: How to run a metacommand recursively

Ciao Andrea,

 

I'm sorry but I really still do not understand why you create a metaCommand.

Then, can you give us a "more complete" code, because you tell us about an error on line 5... but your code example is only 4 lines :-)

 

Furthermore, you cannot write

  oUser = MegaEnv.GetMacro("MyMacro")

 

it does not make sense (since a user is a user, and not a macro :-)

 

It should be :

  oMacro = MegaEnv.GetMacro("MyMacro")

and then, eventually

 Call oMacro.MySuperSub(myParameter1, myParameter2)

 

Maybe that was your question? You created a macro (not a metaCommand) and you want to call it from a script with each user in parameter? If that was your question, well you have the answer above, but to summarize:

Dim oMacro 
oMacro = MegaEnv.GetMacro("MyMacro")
For each objUser in getRoot.User
  Call oMacro.MySuperSub(objUser)
Next

 Where mySuperSub would be a sub of the called macro "myMacro".

 

If that was not your question, please be more precise (and explain me the use of the metaCommand please ! ;-)

Re: How to run a metacommand recursively

I need to set new User attribute "usorganization",  I can read this data from LDAP, so I wrote a Java macro and add a MetaCommand to run it.

Have you other solution to set it?

 

However, to propagate this information, as adviced in one of the first answers, I tried this code:

set cUser = getRoot.getSelection("Select [User] Where [Name] Like '#giova#' And [Repository Access Mode] Not='4' ")
'set cUser = getRoot.User
For Each oUser in cUser
'	print oUser.GetProp("Name")
oUser=MegaEnv.GetMacro("SetDataFromLDAP.Macro")
Next

This is my result:

Script Debug : Error at Line 5 : Object doesn't support this property or method: 'oUser'

Thank you

Re: How to run a metacommand recursively

Ciao andrea,

 

as I already told you, there is no need to create a metaCommand to run a macro.

You can run it directly.

 

Then, if you read my last post, you should have the answer to your problem :

set cUser=getRoot.getSelection("Select User Where Name Like '#giova#' And [Repository Access Mode] Not='4'")
set myMacro = MegaEnv.GetMacro("SetDataFromLDAP.Macro")
For Each oUser in cUser
  Call myMacro.<TheNameOfYourSubInYourMacro>(oUser) 'I guess your sub takes in parameter your user
Next

 

Regards,
