      Description

      The release notes for upgrading to IDM 6.5, state to run a script for metadata migration, that creates x2 new tables - 

      https://backstage.forgerock.com/docs/idm/6.5/release-notes/#updates-required

      migrate_metaobjects.sql

      Caution

      This script deletes meta data from the genericobjects table after migrating that data to new tables. We recommend making a backup of your repository prior to running this file.


      This creates two new tables, metaobjects and metaobjectproperties, then moves user meta data from genericobjects into these two tables.

      ---------

      However the 6.5 Integrators Guide still refers to the deprecated use of the genericobjects tables for metadata - 

      https://backstage.forgerock.com/docs/idm/6.5/integrators-guide/#object-meta-data

      resourceCollection

      The resource location in which the metadata will be stored.

      Adjust your repository to match the location you specify here. It's recommended that you use an internal object path and define the storage in your repo.jdbc.json or repo.ds.json file. Use generic objects for metadata storage to avoid creating new schema or table definitions.

      For a JDBC repository, add the following excerpt to the genericMapping in your repo.jdbc.json file:
       
      "internal/usermeta" :

      { "mainTable" : "genericobjects", "propertiesTable" : "genericobjectproperties", "searchableDefault" : false}
