Using #LD notation in process tracking

For language-dependent representation of process information, a relevant template must be defined to display the captions in the active languages.

The captions for language-dependent text are entered in DialogMultiLanguage when the script is compiled. A key (column Entrykey), the language and the translation (column EntryValue) are entered into the table. The key should be in the corresponding default language. If a language caption has not been entered, the key is used as the display text. Use the Language Editor to add translations for the captions in other languages.


A change is made to an employee. The language-dependent process information could be formulated as follows:

  • Value template for the process information on the Update event

    Value = #LD("Change of properties of person {0}.", $InternalName$)#

  • Templates for the display texts in the DialogMultiLanguage table




    Changed properties of employee {0}.

    English - United States [en-US]

    Changed properties of employee {0}.

    Changed properties of employee {0}.

    German - Germany [de-DE]

    Änderung der Daten der Person {0}.

With InternalName = UserA, the following display texts are produced in the process view.

Current user's language

Display text in the process view

English - United States [en-US]

Change of properties of person UserA.

German - Germany [de-DE]

Änderung der Daten der Person UserA.

Example of specifying the language or language variant

#LD notation supports the specification of a language or language variant. This is particularly useful in cases where users need to receive system messages in their preferred language.

  • Output in the default language:

    Value = #LD("Test: {0}", <parameter>)#

    Value = #LD[""]("Test: {0}", <parameter>)#

  • Output always in English

    Value = #LD["en-US"]("Test: {0}", <parameter>)#

    Value = #LD["english"]("Test: {0}", <parameter>)#

  • Using a variable:

    Dim lang As String = "en-US"

    Value = #LD[lang]("Test: {0}", <parameter>)#

You do not need to enter the language in square brackets, it is optional. However, it is important that the language statement is a String expression. If the language is not specified or the resulting String expression is empty or Nothing, the language currently set for the application is used for translation.

Script library

The script library contains source code for the scripts used in One Identity Manager. The default scripts that we supply cannot be edited. These scripts are overwritten during schema installation even if they are used in custom scripts.

NOTE: You can find detailed examples for syntax and usage of scripts on the installation medium in the QBM\dvd\AddOn\SDK\ScriptSamples directory. You can find examples of unit tests under QBM\dvd\AddOn\SDK\UnitTestSamples.

Scripts are displayed under Script Library in the Designer. You can gather all the information about usage, for example, in column definitions, processes, or other scripts, in the script overview.

Use the Script Editor to create, edit, and test scripts. To use Visual Studio's more extensive debug and edit options, edit, and test the scripts in the System Debugger.

NOTE: Scripts for synchronization projects from the Synchronization Editor's script library are not available in the Designer. For more information about the Synchronization Editor script library, see One Identity Manager Target System Synchronization Reference Guide.

Syntax highlighting

The input fields support syntax highlighting depending on the syntax type.


You can use auto-completion when you write script code. The amount of scripted code to enter is reduced by displaying the names of properties or functions that can be used. To use auto-completion, use the shortcut Ctrl + SPACE in the relevant positions within the input fields. The contents of the list is determined by the key words in the code.

Entering code snippets

Input fields that require data in VB.Net syntax support code snippets. In the Visual Basic category, general code snippets are provided. The Object Layer category contains special code snippets for the One Identity Manager object layer. In the SQL Formatter category, code snippets database queries are formatted from VB.Net.

You can insert code snippets using the following options:

  1. Using the icon
    1. Select the icon.

    2. Select the Object Layer, SQL Formatter, or Visual Basic category.

    3. Select the code snippet.

  2. Using a shortcut
    1. Press F2.

    2. Select the Object Layer, SQL Formatter, or Visual Basic category.

    3. Select the code snippet.

  3. Using an aliases

    1. Enter an alias.
    2. Use Tab to insert the code snippet.

      NOTE: Be aware of case sensitivity when you enter the alias.

NOTE: If you select a code snippet directly using a shortcut or the icon, a short description and the shortcut name are displayed in a tooltip.

Custom code snippets

You can use custom code snippets. To do this, create a CustomSnippets directory in the One Identity Manager installation directory to store the code snippets. Use Visual Studio documentation to develop your own code snippets.

To sort custom code snippets, use the following syntax to enter a sort order in the code snippet header in the code snippet file. When the code snippet is entered, the numbering is hidden.

<Title>(1) Your title for the code snippet</Title>

<Title>(2) Your title for the code snippet</Title>

Inputting values using dollar ($) notation

In input fields where a VB.NET term is expected, a help list opens when you enter $. All properties of the current object are displayed. You can also see a tooltip with a detailed description of the property. When you select a foreign key (FK) column, you can navigate to the columns in the relevant table using the arrow keys. To end the selection in the target column, press Enter or double-click. The complete $ notation for your selection should now be shown in the input column. To close the help list without copying any data, press Esc or leave the input field.
