Need recommendations to override a reference type HR/SQL attribute with a Portal entry during AD Export RRS feed

  • Question

  • We need to implement an override attribute flow from Portal-->MV-->AD that will overwrite the manager set from the usual HR/SQL-->MV-->(Portal-->MV)-->AD route. The manager attribute from AD does not need to be flown back into the OverrideManager attribute in Portal using inbound SR.

    Currently considering the following, and need confirmation/ suggestions for an optimum solution

    Create a reference type attribute in portal, OverrideManager.  In the AD Export SR use IIF statement to flow OverrideManager to AD.manager if available otherwise use manager.

  • Hi,

    You can do this just with manager attribute and setting flow precedence on the attribute (higher precedence on the flow from the portal). So if portal manager value will be provided than it will win over HR manager value.

    However if you want to be able to show both manager and override manager in the portal then you can implement it in the way you proposed.
