Change labels for the schema extensions

Assign a change label to the schema extensions. Change labels are offered as export criteria in the Database Transporter when you create a customer transport package.

To assign a change label in the Schema Extension

  • On the Define change label page, choose one of the following options.

    • No change label

    • Add new change label: In the Change label box, enter the name of the change label.

    • Use existing change label: Select a change label from the Change label menu.

For more information about working with change labels, see the One Identity Manager Operational Guide.

Adding schema extensions to the database

In this step, you add the schema extensions to the One Identity Manager database.

To add schema extensions in the Schema Extension

  1. Changes to the schema are displayed on the System modifications page.

    1. Set Attach statements to existing file to add the statements to an existing file.

    2. Select Save to file and enter a file name. The statements are saved as an XML file.

  2. Click Continue.

  3. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

    The schema extensions are added to the database and the necessary extensions are made to the One Identity Manager system data model. This make take some time.

  4. The current DBQueue Processor calculation tasks are displayed on the System queue page. After the calculation tasks have finished processing, click Next.

  5. On the Compilation page, click Next.

    The compilation process can take some time.

  6. Click Next after compilation is complete.

  7. On the last page, you return to the beginning of the wizard to enter more extensions or click Finished to end the program.

After completing the schema extensions, you can access them with One Identity Manager tools and make further changes.

Recommendations for advanced configuration of custom schema extensions

Once you have added custom tables or columns to the One Identity Manager schema, some additional steps are necessary to display the extensions in the Manager user interface.

General recommendations
  • Edit the object layer using the One Identity Manager tools. This ensures that the data generated have the expected format.

  • Always edit the object layer in the default language of a One Identity Manager installation, for example, English - United States [en-US]. For this purpose, set the login language to English (USA) in the One Identity Manager tools.

  • The Designer contains a variety of consistency checks. Run these consistency checks and apply the repair methods after carrying out a schema extension and after making changes to table and column definitions. For more information about checking data consistency, see the One Identity Manager Operational Guide.

Recommendations for table definitions, column definitions and table relations.

The properties include, for example, display names, descriptions, display templates for tables and columns, value templates, formatting, required field definitions. For more information, see One Identity Manager schema basics.

  • Use the Designer‘s Schema Editor to edit the table definitions and column definitions.

  • Set the table usage types in the Designer. The table's usage type provides the basis for reports and the selection of tasks for daily maintenance.

  • In the Designer, edit the display name and icon for the tables. These properties are used when you create object definitions for the table.

  • In the Designer, define a display pattern to present table entries for instance in the result list of the One Identity Manager tools or in reports.

    NOTE: You do not need to enter a display template for many-to-many tables. For these tables, the viDB.DLL forms the display template from the foreign keys.
  • If there is a column combination for a table that needs to be unique, you define multi-column uniqueness in the Designer.

  • In the Designer, arrange the tables in the schema overview of the Schema Editor. Otherwise, the schema overview shows all new tables in the upper left corner of the module. The colored module background will be automatically adjusted upon re-loading objects.

  • In the Designer, record the display name for each column as well as a comment regarding display in the One Identity Manager tools.

  • In the Designer, you can label columns containing passwords with Encrypted.

  • The syntax type of the column definition is used to give the One Identity Manager tools the appropriate syntax highlighting or input assistance.

  • In the Designer, flag columns containing a user account name with the Central user account value in the Table lookup support property.

  • In the Designer, flag columns containing an email address with the Email address value in the Table lookup support property.

  • To include tables when determining employees for user accounts or email addresses, in the Designer, enter the path to the Person object in the Person object path for table lookup support property. The resulting data is mapped in QBMSplittedLookup.SplittedElement. If an employee should not be determined for a table, enter the value no.

Recommendations for permissions

When you extend a schema using the Schema Extension program, you already assign permissions to permissions groups. You can carry on editing permissions in the Permissions Editor‘s Designer and also create permissions groups with the User & Permissions Group Editor. Permissions groups can be linked to application roles. The users are assigned to application roles and therefore receive the permissions they require. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

Recommendations for object definitions

The data in the user interfaces is represented by means of objects. A generally applicable object definition without any limiting selection criteria is already created with the Schema Extension program. You can create other object definition constraints in addition. You create object definitions in the Designer. For more information, see Object definitions for the user interface.

Recommendations for navigation structure

Expand the menu to display the data in the Manager. Use the Designer's User Interface Editor to create menu items for navigation and result lists. For more information, see User interface navigation and Recommendations for editing menu navigation.

Recommendations for user interface forms

Create or extend the forms for editing and displaying in the Manager. For more information, see Recommendations for editing forms, Editing user interface forms, Forms for custom extensions, and Working with overview forms.

Recommendations for task definitions

If you want to offer particular tasks for the objects in the Manager, you must create task definitions in the Designer. For more information, see Task definitions for the user interface.

  • Create new task definitions if required.

  • Task definitions are created for object definitions so that different tasks can be shown in the user interface depending on the selected objects. If required, create more object definitions.

  • Assign the task definitions to the permissions groups for non role-based and role-based login.

  • If required, assign a program function to the task definition. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

Recommendations for analyzes

For data analysis purposes, you need to create statistics definitions and reports and incorporate these in the user interface. For more information, see Statistics in One Identity Manager and Reports in One Identity Manager.

Recommendations for localizing texts

For language-dependent display of texts in the Manager such as column names, comments, menu items, and form names, translate the texts using the Designer‘s Language Editor. For more information, see Language-dependent data representation.

Managing custom database objects within the database

To create transport packages with the Database Transporter program and to create reports about the system configuration, information about database objects such as customized database tables and database columns, database procedures, features, triggers, indexes, or view definitions is stored in the database. The DBQueue Processor checks and updates this data.

NOTE: It is not usually necessary to edit the data manually although you might edit the comment for use in reports.

To customize database objects

  1. In the Designer, select the Base Data > Advanced > Modified SQL category.

  2. Select the database object.

  3. Modify Remarks.

Table 178: Database object properties
Property Description

Processing status

The processing status is used for creating custom configuration packages.


Additional comments, for example, for using in system configuration reports.


Database object name.


Specifies whether the database object has been changed.

Sort order

Order in which the data is presented.


Type of database object, for example, procedure, function, trigger, index, view, custom table, custom column.

For more information about creating transport packages, see the One Identity Manager Operational Guide.
