Creating Custom Attribute in OIM PS3


This post covers the process of creating custom User Defined Field (UDF)

  1. The searchable property controls whether or not the attribute can be used to perform searches. 
  2. For user defined attributes, setting this property will result in the attribute being shown in the Search form. 
  3. Default attributes do not support this property.
Creating the UDF

Log in to Oracle Identity System Administration.

Create and activate a sandbox

To create a UDF for the user, organization, role, and catalog entities, click the component under System Entities on the left navigation pane of Identity System Administration

In the Custom section of the Fields tab, click the Create icon. The Select Field Type dialog box is display

  • Text: Select this option to create a text field.
  • Number: Select this option to create a numeric field.

  • Date: Select this option to create a date type field.
  • Lookup: Select this option to create a lookup field in which users can search and select the value. 
The Field Type selected is Text in this example and click on Ok

Provide the new user defined filed details and Click on Save and Close. 
  • Display name : Director
           The custom field label that is displayed in the form
  •  Display Width : Director
The display width in characters. If you do not specify a value for this field, then the length of the field is taken as default.
