Groovy script to update User status

Hi groovy people. I am trying to run an event in Agile that runs once a day.
It finds all LDAP users that have been recently created in the past 3 days and are not Active yet.  I then want the groovy script to make them Active.

The event monitor gives me this output:

Message: Begin event – me testing
…before exec query…
…after exec query…
User: bsmith
Insufficient privilege.

So, it does find the AGILEUSER records, but then fails with that privilege message.
In the Event Handler, I put this in the Role field: Administrator;User Administrator
Is this not the correct privilege?

The groovy code in the Event Handler looks like this:

import com.agile.agileDSL.ScriptObj.*;

import com.agile.api.*;

import com.agile.px.*;

import com.agile.util.sql.*;

import java.sql.*;
void invokeScript(IBaseScriptObj obj) {
Connection connection = null;

PreparedStatement statement = null;

ResultSet rows = null;

IAgileSession m_session = obj.getAgileSDKSession();
obj.logMonitor( "Begin event - me testing" );
try {

connection = ConnectionFactory.getFactory().getConnection();


obj.logMonitor( "...before exec query..." );

rows = statement.executeQuery();

obj.logMonitor( "...after exec query..." );

while( {

// modify user status

obj.logMonitor( "User: " + rows.getString("LOGINID") );

IUser user = (IUser)m_session.getObject(IUser.OBJECT_TYPE, rows.getString("LOGINID"));

obj.logMonitor( "...after IUser..." );

IAttribute attr = (String)user.getValue(UserConstants.ATT_GENERAL_INFO_STATUS);

obj.logMonitor( "attr = " + attr );

if ( attr == "Inactive" ) {

user.setValue(UserConstants.ATT_GENERAL_INFO_STATUS, "Active");

obj.logMonitor( rows.getString("LOGINID") + " Activated" );


} catch (Exception e) {

obj.logMonitor( e.getMessage() );

I see roles like My User Profile and Creator can discover object he or she created missing. Please make sure this event has all the roles a regular “User administrator” in your company would have

What user account is the PX running as??? Does that user have all needed user administrator privileges and roles?

And I agree with Raj, make darn sure you always add default roles to the user before you make them active.

Thank you Raj and Kevin.  I added more roles to the Event Handler and then it worked.  And I also needed to change  IAttribute  to  String .  I had found that code somewhere, maybe in one of these forums.  When a user gets created from LDAP, it is automatically giving it the Roles ‘Creator can read and discover object he or she created’ and ‘My User Profile’.  Now, I also want to update the User Category to ‘Concurrent’ and also add the user to a User Group.
