Using dollar ($) notation

Dollar ($) notation is used to access object properties in One Identity Manager.


$<definition>:<data type>{<format>}$

If you are using dollar notation you need to ensure that the value is allocated the correct data type. Dollar notation returns a String type by default.

Permitted data types are:










String (default)


The format specification is optional. If the format is specified, the target type of the expression is a string. If the format is not specified, it is the specified data type.

The format specifications correspond to the format strings of the string.format function for the individual types. For more information about the format string, see



with the value 42 give the result "042"


gives "11:16"

NOTE: If you want to use a dollar $ sign in scripts, without it representing access to a column name, you must mask it by doubling.


In Windows PowerShell scripts, instead of:

theScript.AppendLine("foreach ($Domain in $Domains)")


theScript.AppendLine("foreach ($$Domain in $$Domains)")

Accessing local object columns


$<column name>:<data type>{<format>}$

Examples for use in templates

The Active Directory user display name should comprise of the first and last name of the Active Directory user. The template for ADSAccount.Displayname is:

If $Givenname$<>"" And $Surname$<>"" Then

Value = $Surname$ & " " & $Givenname$

ElseIf $Givenname$<>"" Then

Value = $Givenname$

ElseIf $Surname$<>"" then

Value = $Surname$

End If

If an employee is disabled, the leaving date should be set. The template for Person.Exitdate is:

If $IsInActive:bool$ Then

Value = Date.Today

End If

Accessing columns of an object connected by a relation

The only relation currently permitted is the foreign key relation.


$FK(<foreign key column>).<column name>:<data type>{<format>}$

Example for use in templates:

An Active Directory user’s first name should based on the assigned employee. The template for ADSAccount.Givenname is:

Value = $FK(UID_Person).Firstname$

Accessing the old column value



Example for use in process step parameters:

Optional process step parameters are not generated if the value is set to Nothing or not assigned in the value template. This makes it possible to limit the number of parameters for target system components. If such a value should be cleared, an empty string should be transferred instead of Nothing.

A value template may look like this:

If $Lastname[o]$ <> $Lastname$ Then

Value = $Lastname$

End If

NOTE: For some standard columns such as XDateInserted, XDateUpdated, XUserInserted, XUserUpdated, XOrigin, XIsInEffect, and XMarkedForDeletion, the new values are only mapped after saving the object. This means that when processing the templates, the new column value is always the same as the old value (for example, $XDateUpdated[o]$ = $XDateUpdated$).
