Search filters limit which objects the search returns. For example, if the object is users, you can limit the search to find only contractors. You can configure a filter to find users with the Employee Type of Contractor.
You can configure the following fields for searches:
Defines additional criteria to be combined with the user-defined filter to constrain the search.
Note the following when using this field:
For example, if you configure the search screen to display only roles where the Enabled attribute is set to Yes, remove the Enabled attribute from the list of attributes that users can specify in search criteria.
Otherwise, the user-entered criteria is ignored.
Defines a filter that appears by default when an administrator uses the search screen. For example, if you are configuring a search screen for the Modify Contractor task and you know that administrators typically search for contractors based on the contract firm name, you can set the default filter to Contract Firm = *. Administrators can override the default filter by specifying different search criteria. Setting a default filter improves performance by limiting the number of results returned if an administrator does not specify a filter before beginning a search.
Specifies that all search results are selected by default. If you select this check box, all the objects in the search results list appear with a checked box next to the object name.
Specifies that a search field is displayed with the search results.
Sets the primary object of the task automatically when only one object matches the search filter.
For example, suppose that this option is selected for a user search screen which is associated with the Modify User task. When an administrator opens the Modify User task and enters a search filter that returns only one user, CA Identity Manager opens the Modify User task for that user. The administrator does not have to select the user to open the Modify User task.
Note: For this setting to apply, Automatically perform search must also be selected.
Specifies that the search filter for the task is saved for the user in the current session. The next time that user searches in the task, the saved search filter will be displayed.
Note: CA Identity Manager saves the search filter for the duration of the user session. When the user logs out, the search filter is cleared.
Displays an organization filter on the search screen. If this check box is selected, administrators can specify a filter that limits the organizations in which CA Identity Manager searches for an object. You can specify defaults for the organization search filter by specifying a search screen in the Organization Search field.
Specifies that the organization for the task is saved if an organization was established for the search. The next time a user searches in the task, the organization will be displayed.
Specifies the search screen that CA Identity Manager uses to allow administrators to search for an organization.
Specifies the default organization search scope that appears when an administrator uses a search screen. The search scope determines the levels in an organization tree that are included in the search. Administrators can override the default organization search scope by specifying different search criteria on the search screen.
For example, if you configure a search screen for a custom Modify Contractor task in an environment that stores contractor information at various levels in the organization tree, you can set the default organization search scope to And Lower.
Defines the type of search filter that appears on the search screen. When you select this checkbox, users can specify a single search filter, such as <attribute><comparator><value>. When you clear this checkbox, users can specify multiple search filters. For example, <attribute1><comparator><value1> AND <attribute2><comparator> <value2>. Objects that meet the conditions in all the filters are returned in the search results. In the previous example, objects that include <value1> and <value2> would be returned as search results.
Prohibits administrators from using search operators other than equals.
Displays the number of matching search results. When this check box is selected, all searches return the message, "There are X number of results".
Adds a link to another task to the search screen. The link is displayed as a button.
This field is typically used to add a Create task to a search screen that is configured for object-task navigation.
Specifies a label for the task that you selected in the previous field. This label appears on the button for the task.
Adds a link to a task that allows administrators to select multiple objects to delete. The link is displayed as a button.
This field is typically with object-task navigation.
