The object selector style adds a Browse button to a field. Users can click the button to search for and select an object to populate the field.
The object selector can be applied to fields for single value or multivalue attributes.
To Configure an Object Selector
Select the attribute that is associated with the field.
For example, if you are configuring the field that specifies a user manager, select the attribute in the user store that stores that information.
Note: If you are configuring a field for an attribute that stores multiple values, be sure that the attribute is defined as multivalued in the directory configuration file (directory.xml). See the Configuration Guide for more information.
Select the Object Selector style.
Specify the type of object that the user will search for. For example, if you are configuring an object selector for the Manager field, select the Users object type.
Allows administrators to select only a single value when they search for an object.
Note: This option is available only when you specify a multi-valued attribute in the Attribute Name field.
Select the attribute of the selected object that is displayed when the value is selected.
In the Manager example, select Full Name or User ID so that users can easily identify the manager.
Note: The unique identifier of the object is stored in the attribute.
Select the search screen that administrators use to search for the object.
Specifies the number of items to show in the list box.
Note: This field is available only when you specify a multi-valued attribute in the Attribute Name field.
Select the default object that CA Identity Manager uses when no other object is selected.
CA Identity Manager adds the object selector to the field that you edited.
CA Identity Manager saves the changes to the screen.
