Automatic sequence generator for account_id in FIM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Experts,

    I want to give general user access to create user accounts in FIM however I want account_id/employee-id for such users generated sequentially.
    Like xyz1 then xyz2 and so on.

    Is it possible to generate sequence in FIM?

    Thanks,
    Mann

  • Hello Mann,

    This is possible within FIM, but you will need to create a custom workflow activity for this. The main reason is the fact that FIM is a platform and you need to tell it how to function within your own business requirement.

    There are various threads and articles that explains this in great detail. Have a look at the following and shout if you need more input.
