Is there a limit on the Groupings Tabs you can create in FIM RCDCs? RRS feed

Answers

  • The tabs are Grouping elements in the RCDC XML. You can have 16. Since you typically have Header and Summary Groupings (although these are optional) you typically can have 14

    <xsd:element name="Panel"> <xsd:complexType> <xsd:sequence> <xsd:element ref="my:Grouping" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="16"/>

  • Hi David,

    Thanks for the response. Any ideas if it is possible to extend this max? If so how?

  • Aelric,

    It is not possible to extend the max. What is it you are trying to accomplish? Maybe there is another way to help you.

    You could create a custom interface.

  • Hi David

    The intention was to have multiple tabs related to databases that users had access too. The tabs would only be visible if the user had an account in the database. Being that the client has over 20 databases (one database per country that they are active in) the 16 max limitation became a problem. 

    I have implemented the same concept by exposing all the Database on the same grouping tab, but hiding the controls if the user is not active in the specific database. 

    Unfortunately creating a custom interface is beyond the scope of the project. Not to mention I am not a professional developer by any stretch of the imagination, so the time effort required for me to learn and dev a new interface make this approach not feasible. 

    I am still confused as to the reasoning behind such a limit in the first place. It really does not lend itself to what is supposed to be an enterprise scale product.
