Subject: General Availability Announcement for CA Identity Manager r12.5 SP6

On behalf of CA Technologies, we appreciate your business and the opportunity to provide high-quality, innovative software and services. As part of our ongoing commitment to customer success, we regularly release updated versions of our products. Today, we are pleased to announce that CA Identity Manager r12.5 SP6 is now available.

New features for CA Identity Manager r12.5 SP6 include:

New Certifications

The following new platforms are certified with CA Identity Manager r12.5 SP6:

  • CA Directory r12 SP5, the Identity Manager User store and Connector Xpress JNDI endpoint
  • AIX 6.1 as a supported platform for CA Identity Manager Server
  • SiteMinder on AIX 6.1 (64 bit ) installed with WAS 6.1 and JVM (64 bit) as a supported platform for the Identity Manager Server 

TEWS - Retrieve Related Task Description Field

You can now use TEWS to retrieve the Related Task Description field.

This feature is only applicable to the TEWS API. In the CA Identity Manager User Console, in the System, View Submitted Tasks (VST) task, you can view all inbound tasks associated with a submitted task. For example, a “Create User” task can trigger account creation on an endpoint.

You can now view the details of the account creation by accessing the associated inbound task on the Create User from View Submitted Tasks. The associated inbound task information was not previously available from the TEWS API. This enhancement allows the associated task information to be retrieved using TEWS.

 In addition to the introduction of these features, CA Identity Manager 12.5 SP6 also delivers:

    • Fixes including updated documentation
    • Resolved customer escalations
    • New certifications. Please refer to the support matrix for the certification list.
