6.5 Creation - Set Default Attribute Value

This rule allows you to set default values for attributes that are assigned during the creation of User objects. Implement the rule on the Subscriber Creation policy or Publisher Creation policy in the driver.

There are two steps involved in using the predefined rules: creating a policy in the Creation policy set, and importing the predefined rule. If you already have a Creation policy that you want to add this rule to, skip to Importing the Predefined Rule.

6.5.1 Creating a Policy

  1. Open the Identity Manager Driver Overview for the driver you want to manage.

  2. Click the Creation Policy object on the Publisher or Subscriber channel.

  3. Click Insert.

  4. Name the policy, make sure to implement the policy with the Policy Builder, then click OK.

    The Rule Builder is launched.

  5. Continue with Section 6.5.2, Importing the Predefined Rule.

6.5.3 How the Rule Works

This rule is used when you want to populate default attribute values when creating a User object. When a User object is created, the rule adds the specified attribute values if and only if the attribute has no values supplied by the source object.

If you want more than one attribute value defined, right-click the action and click New > Action. Select the action, set the default attribute value, and follow the steps above to assign the value to the attribute.
