Connect Action

Use this feature to run an action set through Connect. The Connect Action Set must be set up before the Workflow can contain it.

Table 34. Connect Action Menu Fields




Enter a name for this Connect action.


Provide an optional description.

Previous Action

This is a read-only reference field that displays which action will happen immediately before this one in the workflow.

Next Action

Choose the action to perform next after the Connect Action Set has run.

Connect Action Name

Enter the name of the Connect Action Set you want to perform.


There is no search or dropdown function for this field, so ensure the Action Set name is entered correctly.

When referencing an Action Set that is not in the MAIN Connect project, ensure it is referenced by its Fully Qualified Name in the format <project>.<actionset>.

Value Pairs

Enter a value pair: data to send to RapidIdentity Connect if the Action Set requires input parameters. To include more value pairs into this action, click Add Another Value Pair and populate the new field with another set.


Value Pairs are input parameters passed to Connect for the Action Set being invoked. To pass string values, the value would need to be contained within single or double quotes. Boolean values should remain unquoted.

Value Pairs can be static, hard-coded values or Workflow Expressions. For example, if the Action Set needs the idautoID of the Workflow recipient passed as an input parameter {recipient_id}, one option would be to use recipient_id='%{recipient_id}'. If the Action Set needs the full name of the requester, that could be sent as requester_name='%{requester.givenName} %{requester.sn}'.

*Connect Base URL

The base URL of the RapidIdentity Connect system.


Connect Base URL, Connect Action Username, Connect Action Password, and Enable Trace are only required if Global Connect Integration settings have not been configured or if the URL and credentials required to invoke this Action Set are different.

*Connect Action Username

Enter the username credential to be used for the Connect Action Set authorization.

*Connect Action Password

Enter the password credential to be used for the Connect Action Set authorization.

*Enable Trace

Click this checkbox to enable Detailed Tracing of the Action Set.

Validation Regular Expression

Enter a regular expression to use to validate the results from RapidIdentity Connect. If the expression matches the results, the action will be resolved as true. If the expression and the results do not match, the workflow fails, and the entitlement status will change to GRANT_FAILED or REVOKE_FAILED, depending on whether the workflow is for an entitlement GRANT or REVOKE.
