You can use a logical attribute to populate a list of field options. Logical attribute values (in this case, the options) are not directly associated with or written to the user store. The logical attribute values are presented in a profile screen field. When a user selects an option and submits a task, the selected value is processed by a logical attribute handler, which stores the value in the physical attribute associated with the logical attribute.
Note: CA Identity Manager includes a sample logical attribute handler, called StateSelector, that you can use as a base for creating a logical attribute handler that populates field options. The StateSelector sample folder is installed under samples\LogicalAttributes in the Administrative Tools. The Administrative Tools are placed in the following default locations:
For information on using the sample, see the readme.txt file in the StateSelector directory.
To use a simple list to populate field options
Note: You use the Logical Attribute API to write a logical attribute handler. For more information, see the Programming Guide for Java.
Note: Logical attributes are indicated by a preceding and trailing pipe (|) character.
The fields in the Field Properties dialog change based on the style selection you make.
An additional field, Selection Options, appears.
Note: For information on required fields, see the User Console online help.
