MidPoint is known to work well in the following deployment environment. The following list is list of tested platforms, i.e. platforms that midPoint team or reliable partners personally tested this release. The version numbers in parentheses are the actual version numbers used for the tests. However it is very likely that midPoint will also work in similar environments. Also note that this list is not closed. MidPoint can be supported in almost any reasonably recent platform (please contant Evolveum for more details).

  • Oracle 11g (11.2.0.2.0)

Unsupported Platforms

Following list contains platforms that midPoint is known not to work due to various issues. As these platforms are obsolete and/or marginal we have no plans to support midPoint for these platforms.

Background and History

midPoint is roughly based on OpenIDM version 1. When compared to OpenIDM v1, midPoint code was made significantly "lighter" and provides much more sophisticated features. Although the architectural outline of OpenIDM v1 is still guiding the development of midPoint almost all the OpenIDM v1 code was rewritten. MidPoint is now based on relative changes and contains advanced identity management mechanisms such as advanced RBAC, provisioning consistency, etc.

For the full project background see the midPoint History page.

Known Issues

  1. Consistency mechanism fails to operate correctly in case new user is added (under some cirmustances) (https://jira.evolveum.com/browse/MID-1056)
  2. Provisioning script arguments can only be static (https://jira.evolveum.com/browse/MID-1194)
  3. Policy changes require application server restart in some scenarios (https://jira.evolveum.com/browse/MID-1187)
  4. Export creates data that do not comply to schema in some situations. Workaround: turn off schema checking during reimport. (https://jira.evolveum.com/browse/MID-1197)
  5. Import falsely displays a referential error in some cases (https://jira.evolveum.com/browse/MID-1198)
  6. Reimport of deep organizational structure may fail to create proper structure (https://jira.evolveum.com/browse/MID-1199)
  7. Use of consistency mechanism may cause application of a value of a weak mapping even if it should not be applied under some circumstances (https://jira.evolveum.com/browse/MID-1201)
