Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Web Services

Configuration: SPMLPerson Object

Each class defined in the Configuration:SPML object typically has an associated form object containing the rules for transforming between the external attribute model defined by the class and the internal model defined by the associated view.

The following example shows how the standard person class references a form.

Example 1–2 Standard Person Class Referencing a Form

<Configuration name='SPMLPerson'>
         <Field name='cn'>
         <Field name='global.fullname'>
         <Field name='email'>
         <Field name=''>
         <Field name='description'>
         <Field name='accounts[Lighthouse].description'>
         <Field name='password'>
         <Field name='password.password'>
         <Field name='sn'>
         <Field name='global.lastname'>
         <Field name='gn'>
         <Field name='global.firstname'>
         <Field name='telephone'>
         <Field name='accounts[Lighthouse].telephone'>

SPML class forms

Each attribute in a class definition contains two field definitions:

The form is processed in such a way that when attributes are returned to the client, only the result of the <Derivation> expressions are included. When attributes are being sent from the client to the server, only <Expansion> expression results are assimilated back into the view. The effect is similar to the schema map of a Resource definition.
