IDM/IdentityApps 472 - Configure Username in Search Results

Dear community,

we recently migrated a customer environment to 472, including der Identity Applications.

We now face a new requirement regarding the usability/customization of the Identity Apps:
When searching for users in one of the new functionalities, e.g. the User Catalog or Role Catalog, search results to User entities are being listet with [GivenName] + [„ “] + [Surname], which is the default.
In the „old days“ of UserApplication it was possible to modify the FullName Entity in DAL (per locale) to customize the displayed Username for „most“ search results. Additionally, we had the possibility to add a UIControlRegistry_CustomProps.xml in tomcat/conf for Typeahead fields.

In 472 however, we can’t get this to work properly. We observed the following behaviour: Modifications to the FullName Entity locales in DAL will only display properly if only GivenName and Surname are being used. As soon as we make use of additional attributes (since this is a calculated attribute value), these will not be displayed in the search results. Interestingly though, the values will show up in the User detail views, but not in the desired search results/list views.

We tried to follow the documentation, but without any success so far:
https://www.netiq.com/documentation/identity-manager-47/identity_apps_admin_472/data/netiq-identity-manager-configure-user-names.html

What are we missing here?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
Philipp

setting the expression to

attr.getValue("Given Name") + " " + attr.getValue("Surname") + ", " +
attr.getValue("CN")

worked for me to be able to discern users with the same first and last
name in request on behalf.

Hi Norbert,

thanks for your input!

Have to try out this one and check if the customer is satisfied with the results.

I am still curious though, as to which settings are crucial for the displayed results/values in the various (other) search fields in the new dashboard...

Best regards,
Philipp

Re: IDM/IdentityApps 472 - Configure Username in Search Resu

Hi Phillip,

We do support customizing full name of an user by editing locales of Full Name in DAL entity in 4.7.x too.

Did you try what Norbert suggested?

In your message (#1) you are saying If I add any attribute to Full Name expression is not working. Did you try by giving access to the attribute? If still not working let us know what is the attribute and in which page it is not working.


Thanks,
Sriram

Hi Sriram,

thanks for your reply!

Let me give you some examples:

- Our customized Full Name DAL Entity

attr.getValue("Given Name") + " " + attr.getValue("Surname") + + ", " + attr.getValue("customAttr") + ", " + attr.getValue("CN")


Under Access > New Request > Others
https://pasteboard.co/IdWkXwu.png
--> Expression is fully displayed in the result list

Under Administration > Roles > Add Role Assignment
https://pasteboard.co/IdWmreI.png
--> Expression is NOT fully displayed in the result list

Under People
https://pasteboard.co/IdWntpP.png
--> Expression is NOT fully displayed on the left but in the details on the right

Under Access > Permissions
https://pasteboard.co/IdWoB1k.png
--> Expression is NOT fully displayed on the left but in the details on the right

Is this the default behaviour for the pages listed above or are we missing some configuration options here?

Thank you and best regards,
Philipp

Hello,
I have a similar requirement from the customer and I can duplicate the issue, can we get a confirmation that this is a bug in 4.7.2 ?
