Allow manager to edit certain attributes for subordinate in FIM Portal RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    How can I allow a manager to be able to edit / update only certain attributes in the FIM portal for people reporting to the manager? The manager should not be able to edit or update attributes for people not reporting to him or her.

    All people in the portal have the manager attribute populated. I know that it should be done with a MPR. but the questions is How.

  • Hi,

    It was actually easier than I thought. Here are the steps for someone else interested in this:

    1. create request MPR

    2. For requestors, select "Relative to resource" and add "Manager" attribute

    3. Select the rigts, in this case "Read resource" and "Modify a single-valued attribute"

    4. Select "Grants Permission"

    5. Target resources will be "All People"

    6. Select the specific attributes that the manager should be able to change

    7. Save and submit MPR
