  • Question

  • Hi All

    Where and how to configure the list of attributes that is displayed in the destination and under "Concatenate Value"

    For example, I want to set something like this

    [//Target/CustomAttributX] = CustomAttributeY + " " + CustomAttributZ

     

    TIA

  • After some more research, this looks like it could be a known problem. I was able to work around this by adding the custom attribute that I want to view to existing resource type. I chose person. After doing this, I ran IISRESET on portal, now the attribute is available in dropdown list.

  • Sachin,

     

    The list of attributes for destination is based on what the destination is. If this is inbound sync rule, then the destination is the Metaverse. If this is outbound sync rule, the destination is what attributes are in the schema of the connected directory. i.e. AD, SQL, text file, etc......

  • Thanks Glenn for the reply. Here is the scenario...

    On "Create Workflow" page,

    1. "Workflow Type" as "Action"

    2. "Activity Picker" as "Function Evaluator"

    3. Click "Select"

    4. Click "Lookup"

    5. Workflow Parameter as "Target"

    6. Parameter Attribute: <drop down>  -> How is this list populated? I have not specified any sync rule type or object type

    7. Under "Value"/"Name" <Please select an item> -> How is this list populated? I have not specified any sync rule type or object type

    TIA

  • Sachin,

     

    I looked at my environment, this list is determined by the schema of the FIM portal. I made a new attribute, called Delegate, and created binding for this attribute to person object. When I go to workflow and select function evaluator and choose 'Target' for Workflow Parameter, I now have 'Delegate' available for Workflow Attribute. I also notice that the list includes attributes for multiple object types, including group.

  • Thanks Glenn for the reply.

    I noticed that only those attributes which are bound to the existing resource types are available for the workflow attribute.

    However, if you create a new attribute and bind it to the new custom resource type then it is not availabe.

  • I have a custom attribute attached to a New Resource, and I wish to send email to that distribuition group in the attribute, I am trying to do this in a approval activity

    Can I set the target as \\target\custom_attribute and where I can allow it happen? It must be create a MPR or some kind of filter like for \\target\owner?

  • Have you found a solution to this problem Lucas? This is exactly what I am attempting to do!

  • Jerry,

    I was able to find one more way around this issue (other than binding the custom attribute to another resource).  If you select the CustomExpression option, you can simply type in the attribute you wish to access.  For example: [//Target/MyCustomExpression].  You can check out my blog post at http://www.apollojack.com/2011/05/custom-attributes-in-function-evaluator.html for more information.
