Task definitions for the user interface

You use methods to carry out particular actions with objects in the One Identity Manager tools, such as executing copy actions for applications.

Task definitions are created for object definitions so that different tasks can be shown in the user interface depending on the selected objects. These tasks are also available to Quests, taking their permissions group memberships into account, when tasks are also assigned to permissions groups. Apart from these object dependent task definitions, form tasks are provided through the user interface form and cannot be edited.

Predefined configurations are maintained by the schema installation and cannot be edited apart from a few properties. You can disable individual predefined tasks to prevent them being shown in the user interface. They remain disabled even after schema installation.

NOTE: The methods are displayed in the task view of the One Identity Manager in alphabetical order.
