The user view is a data structure that contains all available information about an Identity Manager user. It includes:
Attributes stored in the Identity Manager repository
Attributes fetched from resource accounts
Information derived from other sources such as resources, roles, and organizations
Views contain many attributes, and a view attribute is a named value within the view (for example, waveset.accountId is the attribute in the user view whose value is the Identity Manager account name).
Most form field names are associated with a view attribute. You associate a field with a view attribute by specifying the name of the view attribute as the name of the form field. For more information, see Field Display Properties.
For more information about the user view, including a reference for all attributes in the user view, see Chapter 3, Identity Manager Views
