A nested task is an admin task that can be opened from the Profile tab of another task. Users of the first task open the nested task by clicking a link or button. For example, you can add a Delete User button to the Modify User task. If the user account is no longer valid, an administrator can click the Delete User button to remove the account without having to return to the navigation pane to select a new task.
Note: The nested task does not appear if the administrator does not have adequate privileges to access it.
To add a nested task
CA Identity Manager adds a new field above the field you selected.
The Field Properties dialog opens.
CA Identity Manager displays new configuration fields in the Field Properties dialog.
The number of columns that the field will span (excluding the label)
Specifies the task that is added to the existing task.
Specifies the name of the task link or button that will appear in the Profile screen for the active task.
Determines whether the nested task appears as a link or a button.
When this option is selected, Identity CA Identity Manager uses the subject of the active task as the subject of the task. For example, suppose the Modify User task includes a link to the Delete User task. An administrator uses the Modify User task to modify John Smith's profile. The administrator decides that John Smith's profile is no longer necessary, so she uses the Delete User link to open the Delete User task. When the task opens, CA Identity Manager asks the administrator if she wants to delete John Smith's profile. She does not need to search for the profile to delete.
Determines how CA Identity Manager opens the task.
Opens a new task before the active task completes. The new task replaces the previous task. When the nested task completes, users are not returned to the original task.
Submits the new task before the active task completes. When users complete the new task, they are returned to the original task.
Submits the new task after the original task completes. This is called a post-task.
