The table entries to be displayed are found through a selection script and an object definition condition.
IMPORTANT: You must compile the database for the selection criteria to come into effect.
Selection script to determine at runtime whether this data record concerns a dummy employee:
Value = $IsDummyPerson:Bool$
Condition (WHERE clause) to select all “dummy employees”:
You can define the following captions to represent each object definition in the administration tool user interface.
The list caption is used in One Identity Manager tools as the title for result lists. The display text of the object definition that you specified through the selected menu item, is used as the list title.
The form caption is used to display the current object definition, for example, in the Manager status bar.
The current object definition is determined when an item in the administration tool result list is selected. Valid object definitions and thereby the possible captions are determined by selection scripts. Of these, the caption of the object definition with the lowest sort order is shown.
|Object definition||Selection script||Sort order||
|Employee dummy||Employees labeled as dummy.||1||Dummy employee|
When you select an employee in the result list, the related caption is Employees. If the employee is labeled as a dummy employee, this object is assigned to another object definition by means of the VB.Net expression and the caption Dummy employees is used.
Predefined configurations are maintained by the schema installation and cannot be edited apart from a few properties.
To define objects definitions
- OR -
Add a new object definition using Object | New in the menu bar.
|Exclusive||Objects labeled with this option are considered exclusive. That means, all other possible matching object definitions are not accepted as valid. If several object definitions of one table are labeled as exclusive, the object definition with the lowest sort order applies.|
|Display template||The display template specifies the form in which the data sets in the administration tool result lists are displayed.|
|Display name||The object's display name is used, for example, to identify the table in a database search or for error output. Display names can be given in more than one language.|
|List caption||Caption used to display the list title in the user interface.|
|Form caption||Caption used to display the form title in the user interface.|
Selection script as a VB.Net term, to determine during runtime whether the database object passed down belongs to this object definition.
Object processing status.
Condition required for the object definition to be used for displaying in lists. You define the condition as a valid WHERE clause for database queries.
|Remarks||Spare text box for additional explanation.|
|Disabled by preprocessor||If an object definition is excluded through a preprocessor condition, this option is set by the Database Compiler.|
Default settings for fields that are assigned when a new data set is added. The input is in VB.Net syntax.
|Background color||Color, with which the control for this object is displayed in the schema overview.|
|Object name||Name of the object.|
Object definitions can have preprocessor conditions added. This means, an object definition is only available when the preprocessor condition is fulfilled.
The sort order is used for displaying the form title when an object is selected. The smaller the sort order magnitude, the stronger the restrictions defined for the object.
|Icon||Icon for displaying the object definition.|
|Table||Table for which the object definition is created.|
