Inter-object relationship in the Portal RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have an HR system that contains many different objects: Person, Position, Department, etc

    Naturally the Person object allows us to create employees; the Position object allows us to create positions, etc. in the HR system.

    We have imported the employees to FIM & FIM Portal.

    Next we extended the FIM schemas, and now are importing the various Positions into the new Position object in FIM & FIM Portal.

    The FIM Portal, however, will be used to create new 'contractors' that do not exist as records in HR. However, the Positions these 'contractors' will be assigned to are to be the ones imported from HR.

    Can we therefore expose the Positions available in a drop down / object picker when creating /editing 'Contractors' in the FIM Portal? Also, when new Positions are created/updated/removed in HR, these should be reflected in this drop down/object picker.

    If yes, is there an explanation/guide somewhere we could look at?

    Thank you,
