Working with the Designer

Views in the Designer

The following views are displayed in the Designer: There are several editors used for editing data. Their functionality and methods are tailored to the different configuration tasks.

Table 40: Designer views
View Description

Navigation view

The navigation structure of the user interface is hierarchical and allows users to drill down to the selection of an object definition. The top level of the hierarchy is used to classify One Identity Manager data into specified categories.

Document view

Overview forms and selected editors are displayed in the document view. When an object is selected in the navigation view, the corresponding overview form is displayed.

TIP: If quick edit is enabled, you skip the overview and go straight to the first editor available for the object.

Task view

When you select an object in the navigation view, the available editors are displayed together with their executable tasks. The relevant editor is opened in the document view when the object is selected.

Change log

Changes made by the user are recorded in the change log.

Error log

The program’s error log displays all warnings and error messages that have occurred since the program started up. When the Designer restarts, the error log is reinstalled. For detailed information about the error log, see the One Identity Manager Process Monitoring and Troubleshooting Guide.

Change label

In this view, change labels are created and edited. For detailed information about working with change labels, see the One Identity Manager Operational Guide.

On the User tab, configure your user-specific program settings. These settings are stored in the One Identity Manager database user configuration.

  • Show balloon tips: Specifies whether speech bubbles, which provide information about program functionality, are shown in the program.

  • Show large images in navigation panes: Specifies whether smaller or larger icons are displayed on the categories.

  • Show additional icons: Specifies whether icons are shown in the task list in addition to the descriptions.

  • Use single clicks: Specifies whether objects are loaded with a single click or by double-clicking.

  • Show additional navigation information: If this option is activated, additional information is shown for individual interface components.

    NOTE: The option is not saved permanently. It has to be reset each time the program is started.

After starting
  • Visible root nodes: The number of categories to be displayed initially in the navigation view. Changes become effective after a restart.
  • Enable quick edit mode: Specifies whether quick editing is enabled.

    By default, an object‘s overview form is displayed first. You can, however, configure the program to show the edit form for the object first, which allows faster editing. In order to do this quick edit mode has to be enabled. Quick edit mode is indicated by an additional icon in the program’s status bar.

  • Show "Getting Started": Indicates whether the Getting Started category is shown or hidden.

  • Show system data: Indicates whether comprehensive system information such as system tables, script occurrences, preprocessor dependencies are shown.

  • Enable list limit: Specifies whether the number of elements shown in the result list and list items in controls should be limited.

    If this option is enabled, the number of elements must be entered. To do this, you can choose between the global system settings or the local, personal setting for the user.

  • Use system settings: Specifies whether the system settings should be used for the list limit.

    If this option is activated, then the global system settings from the Common | DBConnection | ListLimit parameter is used. If the number of results is greater than the defined number, a filter dialog opens.

  • Objects: Personal setting for the object list limit. If the number of results is greater than the defined number, a filter dialog opens.

  • Form history length: Number of forms available to browse through in the form history. You find the form history in the menus attached to the <Back> and <Forward> buttons in the main toolbar.

  • Entries in the search history: Number of entries available in the search history.

General program settings

On the Program tab, enter the common program settings. These settings are saved in the registry database on the workstation.

Language settings
  • Language: Language used for formatting data, such as date formats, time formats, and number formats.

  • Other user interface language:Language for the user interface. The initial program login uses the system language for the user interface. Changes to the language settings take effect after the program has been restarted.The language is set globally for all One Identity Manager programs, which means the language setting does not have to be configured for each program individually.

Designer database settings
  • Load all system data at program startup: Set the loading behavior for system data.

    If this option is not enable, only the tables that are absolutely necessary are loaded when the Designer starts. The rest of the table are loaded in background and the user can already start using the program. The progress of the filling procedure is shown in the program’s status bar.

    If this option is enabled, all tables are loaded when the program starts. The user cannot start using the program until all the tables have been loaded. The changes take effect once the Designer has restarted.

  • Load BLOB fields from database on program start: If this option is not enabled, the contents of binary fields are only loaded when they are required.

    If the option is enable, this data is already loaded at program startup. The means that program startup takes longer.

    The changes take effect once the Designer has restarted.

  • Save databases locally: If this option is enabled, the internal database is not deleted when the program ends. This accelerates restarting the program the next time since only the changes connected with the One Identity Manager database need to be reloaded.

    If the option is not enabled the internal database is deleted from the hard disk when the program ends. This means that all the data has to be loaded from the One Identity Manager database when the program is restarted.

  • Use RAM to store the system data (no crash recovery): If this option is not enabled, the internal database is saved on the workstation hard disk.

    If the option is enabled, the internal database is loaded into the workstation’s RAM. In this case the database cannot be restore if the program crashes.

    The changes take effect once the Designer has restarted.

  • Database directory: If the Save database locally option is enabled, the internal database is stored in the %LocalAppData%\One Identity\One Identity Manager\Designer\Cache directory. You save the database somewhere else by selecting another database directory.

  • Clear local cache: Click the button to empty the local cache directory %LocalAppData%\One Identity\One Identity Manager\Cache.
