FIM Portal - User Creation RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi,

    Some questions when Creating Users from the FIM Portal

    1. Can you setup mandatory fields? E.g. First, Last Name etc. must be completed before you are able to submit the form? I have noticed that you don't have to complete any field and FIM will still successfully submit and create the user.

    2. If question 1 is possible, can you configure that when you select Employee Type as contractor the employee End Date is mandatory but a Full time Employee it is a optional field?

    3. Is there any tip / best practices when using the User creation function within FIM.

    4. Can you create a lookup on the account name to check that it is unique?

    5. Can the photo that is uploaded in FIM be exported as is to AD?

    Thanks,

  • Hello,

    Here my answers.

    1. Yes, you can setup mandatory fields. You have two way to do it:

          - In the RCDC file for user creation

          - On the binding of fields in the FIM Schema, setting it to required

    2. No, it's not possible out-of-the-box.

    3. It's not best practice, but for me you need to keep it as simple. You can't have different creation form for the different employee type. So you need to define a generic form for all user and setup workflows to achieve some actions for a specific employee type.

    4. Yes, in the RCDC file for user creation, you can setup a XPATH Query to check the uniqueness of a fields

    5. Yes, it's possible

  • 5. Short answer is "Yes", you will need an outbound flow of metaverse attribute photo either to AD jpegPhoto or thumbnailPhoto attribute though certain restrictions will apply (thumbnailPhoto is limited to 100k size, for example).

    Also, if you're uploading photo via FIM Portal you have to import it from FIMMA to metaverse as well (Photo -> photo).
