The Object Selector style allows administrators to add search functionality to a field on a profile screen. Users can use this functionality to search for and select an object to associate with the attribute described in the profile. For example, an administrator may add an object selector to the Manager field to allow users to search for a new user's manager in a Create User task. When the user selects a manager and submits the Create User task, CA Identity Manager stores information about that manager in the new user's profile.
In most cases, the object selector search allows users to select and store a single value. However, administrators can also configure the object selector to allow users to search for and select multiple values. In this case, the selected values are stored in a multi-valued attribute on the object.
