RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.Identity Management JSON-RPC API is now available An API is now available for Identity Management (IdM). IdM also provides an API browser for system administrators to view the API. Previously, the IdM API was enhanced to enable multiple versions of API commands. These enhancements could change the behavior of a command in an incompatible way. Users are now able to continue using existing tools and scripts even if the IdM API changes. This enables the following: * Administrators can use previous or later versions of IdM on the server than on the managing client. * Developers can use a specific version of an IdM call, even if the IdM version changes on the server. In all cases, the communication with the server is possible, regardless if one side uses, for example, a newer version that introduces new options for a feature. For details on using the API, see link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/9/html/using_idm_api/index[Using IdM API].

Description Florence Blanc-Renaud 2022-05-11 14:55:24 UTC
This bug is created to track availability of IdM server stable API feature introduced in RHEL-7, in Bug 1298286 and denote that it is still being offered as TechPreview.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1298286 +++

As a Developer of a Product, I want to call a specific version of API call, without being affected by higher or lower version of the IdM server than my testing instance so that the Product is not dependent on a specific IdM server version and respective changes

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run any 'ipa' command from client newer than an IPA server. E.g. user-find

Actual results:
There is only "one" API, API version is used only for rejecting request and not managing requests.

Expected results:
Client can call API with API version specified. Server will respond according to the specified version(different output/required params, etc.).

The supported versions are yet to be determined.

Comment 2 Florence Blanc-Renaud 2022-06-22 15:08:54 UTC
The release notes for RHEL 9.0 [1] properly document that Identity Management JSON-RPC API is available as Technology Preview. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
