Hello- I'm working with the Blackberry Administration API version 5.0.3.
I've searched the documents and don't find anything on modifying a user's Access Control Rules using the API. Any help or feedback on the best approach would help.

If you're on BES 5.0.3 I would strongly recommend using BWS as opposed to BAA.
Are you trying to modify the Access Control Policies for applications?

Hi Garett. Thanks for the reply.
FYI I'm not using BWS because of the refresh of users taking up to 24 hours. I checked that post on the forum and there hasn't been any resolution. Not to switch subjects,
For this problem, I'm trying to add a specific Access Control Rule to a specific user, ex: user ID 1000.

Neat thing about BWS, even though the BAS will only refresh the users from the directory once every 24 hours by default, if you try to add a user to the BAS by their Email address using BWS and they are not specifically known to the BAS yet it will automatically scan the company directory and add them to the BAS if found.
Back on subject, what rules are you trying to add?

Hi Garett. Thanks for the quick reply. I'm trying to enable a web page to list all available ACRs, and then select one to apply to a user.There might be one called gmail that restricts users to gmail urls. The idea would be to add that ACR to a user say user ID 1000.

That's not supported in BWS nor BAA. The easy way to check would be to look at the interfaces that include all the supported function calls, for BWS it's just the BWS interface. You can retrieve ACR info from the MDS instance but not modify it currently.

Thanks Garett. I appreciate the advice about checking the main interface. It's unfortunate that you currently can't add an ACR to an existing user via either API. It's important to me as adding a software configuration or IT Policy.
Thanks for the advice about updating the user in BAS!!!

Feel free to log a Feature Request to get this added to a future iteration of BWS. You can use our external Issue Tracker (linked in my sig) to submit the request.
