    Hi Aron
    Just a quick note to suggest that you put the Home link at the top the page of your HTML documentation as well as the bottom.

    Hi @RobertLapes,

    FYI, I’ve opened a JIRA (ticket) for your suggestion, DOCS-234.

    As a member of our community, you should be able to add comments to that ticket.

    If you have additional suggestions, you’re welcome to post them here, or create your own JIRA.



    I noticed a typo in openIDM installation guide in 1.3.2 under create user in windows

    From installation Guide
    C:\> curl ^ –cacert self-signed.crt ^ –header “Content-Type: application/json” ^ –header “X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin” ^ –header “X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin” ^ –request POST ^ –data “{ \”userName\”:\”joe\”, \”givenName\”:\”joe\”, \”sn\”:\”smith\”, \”mail\”:\”[email protected]\”, \”telephoneNumber\”:\”555-123-1234\”, \”password\”:\”TestPassw0rd\”, \”description\”:\”My first user\” \”_id\”:\”joe\” }” ^ https://localhost:8443/openidm/managed/user?_action=create

    Corrected one
    C:\> curl –cacert self-signed.crt –header “Content-Type: application/json” –header “X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin” –header “X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin” –request POST –data “{ \”userName\”:\”joe\”, \”givenName\”:\”joe\”, \”sn\”:\”smith\”, \”mail\”:\”[email protected]\”, \”telephoneNumber\”:\”555-123-1234\”, \”password\”:\”TestPassw0rd\”, \”description\”:\”My first user\”, \”_id\”:\”joe\” }” https://localhost:8443/openidm/managed/user?_action=create

    Highlighted difference in bold( cap^ and comma,)

    Thanks for your report on our Windows-based REST call. We wrote them for the Windows command line, and need to update them for PowerShell. I’ve opened OPENIDM-8746 for that purpose, and we’ll backport it appropriately.

    (Best I can tell, your report was from the 4.0 version of our documentation).



    I followed the “Report documentation feedback” link on top of the documentation which opens an email template addressed to [email protected]. After submitting I got a delivery failure, saying:

    We’re writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (docs) may not exist, or you may not have permission to post messages to the group.

    Cheers, Benedikt
