The custom participant resolver is a Java object that determines workflow activity participants and returns a list to CA Identity Manager, which then passes the list to the workflow engine. Typically, you write a custom participant resolver only if the standard participant policies cannot provide the list of participants that an activity requires.
Note: You create a custom participant resolver using the Participant Resolver API. For information, see the Programming Guide for Java.
To configure a custom participant resolver
Defines the fully qualified domain name of the server where CA Identity Manager is installed. For example, myserver.mycompany.com:port.
Specifies the custom participant resolver name, for example, GroupFinder.
Specifies a description of the custom participant resolver.
Specifies the Java class name, for example, com.netegrity.samples.GroupFinder
Specifies a unique name for the custom resolver. This must match the name you entered on the Custom Type Participant Resolver screen in the Management Console, for example, GroupFinder.
Note: The default approval setting is APPROVERS_REQUIRED=NO. In this case, an activity is approved automatically if no participants are found.
If APPROVERS_REQUIRED=YES and CA Identity Manager finds no participants, the activity is not successfully completed.
