Many forms are not visible to the user but help process data from an external resource through the resource adapter before passing it into Identity Manager. In visible forms, too, some components can be hidden. These hidden components are used to process this incoming data as well as to transform data in visible forms.
Some hidden processing within forms is carried out by the methods in the FormUtil Java class. These are frequently used when populating lists in forms from information retrieved dynamically from an external resource.
This section discusses the following tasks, which permit you to process data and optionally hide this processing in forms. Typical tasks include:
Adding a Password Confirmation Challenge
Including XPRESS Logic Using Derivation and Expansion elements
Calling Methods to Populate Lists
Building DN strings
Getting a list of object types for which the session owner has access
Getting a list of organizations
Getting a list of unassigned resources
Obtaining a list of resource object names
