(2011-01-23) Searching For Objects When Populating Reference Attributes In FIM (Part 1)

Posted by Jorge on 2011-01-23


Within FIM you search for and select objects be specified in another object’s reference attribute. Examples of this are:

  • A person being specified as someone’s manager;
  • A person being specified as someone’s assistant;
  • A person being specified as the owner of something;
  • One or more persons being specified as the member(s) of a certain group.

In all cases, you of course want to select the correct objects to be specified in the other object’s reference attribute (e.g. manager, assistant, owner, member).

Within FIM you have two options to choose from that you can use in RCDCs when configuring the UocIdentityPicker control. Both options of course have their advantages and disadvantages.

  • Option 1: Through a Filter Property
  • Option 2: Through a UsageKeyword Linking To A Search Scope

REMARK: You can only use one of the options at a time. Unfortunately it is not possible to use both at the same time and therefore combine their powers (advantages).

The best way to go through this is by using examples to make sure it is best understood. I will explain this in the next two posts.

Part 2 can be found here.
