6 Developing Process Forms

The information required to provision resources to a target user or organization cannot always be retrieved from an existing Oracle Identity Manager form. You can use the Form Designer form in the Development Tools folder of the Design Console to create a form with fields that contain the relevant information. After creating the form, you assign it to the process or resource object that is associated with provisioning resources to the user or organization. Figure 6-1 shows the Form Designer Form.

Oracle Identity Manager displays a resource object or process form that a user creates by using the Form Designer form for the following reason:

When the process form is attached to the appropriate provisioning process, and the Launch Form menu command is selected by right-clicking the process from the Object Process Console tab of the Organizations or Users forms.

For example, when Oracle Identity Manager or one of its users attempts to complete the resource object or process, the assigned form is triggered. When this occurs, either Oracle Identity Manager or a user populates the fields of this form. After the data is saved, the corresponding process or resource object can achieve a status of Completed, and Oracle Identity Manager can provision the appropriate resources to the target organizations or users.

Figure 6-1 Form Designer Form

Surrounding text describes Figure 6-1 .

For example, the Solaris form (represented by the UD_SOLARIS name in the Table Name field) has been created and assigned to both the Solaris resource object and provisioning process.

Note:

The table name contains a UD_ prefix, followed by the form name. For this example, because the name of the form is SOLARIS, its table name is UD_SOLARIS.

Table 6-1 describes the data fields of the Form Designer form.

Table 6-1 Fields of the Form Designer Form

Field Name Description

Table Name

The name of the database table that is associated with the form.

Note: The table name contains the UD_ prefix, followed by the form name. If the name of the form is SOLARIS, its table name is UD_SOLARIS.

Description

Explanatory information about the form.

Important: The text that is displayed in the Description field is the name of the form.

Preview Form

When you click this button, the form is displayed. This way, you can see how it looks and functions before you make it active.

Form Type

These options are used to designate if the form is to be assigned to a process or a resource object.

If you select the Process option, the form is associated with an approval or provisioning process.

Object Name

This is the name of the resource that can be provisioned (for example, a database, server, software application, file, or directory access). Also, referred to as a resource object name.

Double-click this field to see the available resource object names.

Latest Version

The most recent version of the form.

Active Version

The version of the form that is used with the designated process or resource object.

Note: After a version of the form is displayed in the Active Version field, it cannot be modified.

Current Version

This version of the form is being viewed and contains information, which is displayed throughout the various tabs of the Form Designer form.

Create New Version

If you click this button, you can assign an additional name to the existing version of a form. As a result, you can modify this version, without effecting the original version of the form.

Note: If you create a new version of the form and click Refresh, the name that you provided for this version is displayed in the Current Version box.

Make Version Active

By clicking this button, you can specify that the current version of the form is the one that is to be assigned to the process or resource object. In other words, this version is now active.

Note: After a version of the form is active, it cannot be modified. Instead, you must create another additional version of the form (by clicking the Create New Version button).


The following sections describes how to work with forms:

6.1 Creating a Form

To create a form:

  1. Open the Form Designer form.

  2. In the Table Name field, enter the name of the database table that is associated with the form.

    Note:

    The table name contains the UD_ prefix followed by the form name. If the name of the form is SOLARIS, its table name is UD_SOLARIS.

  3. In the Description field, enter explanatory information about the form.

  4. Select the Process option. This is because the form is assigned to a provisioning process.

  5. Click Save.

    The form is created. The words Initial Version are displayed in the Latest Version field. This signifies that you can populate the tabs of the Form Designer form with information, so the form is functional with its assigned process or resource.

Note:

When you create an application instance, associate a process form with it and publish the sandbox, and then make some changes to the process form in the Design Console, such as add new fields or prepopulate adapters, then the changes are not reflected in the application instance. To reflect the changes in the application instance, create a new process form and associate it with the application instance. The recommended method to do so is by using the Form Designer in Oracle Identity System Administration, and not the Form Designer form in the Design Console. See "Managing Forms" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager for details.

6.2 Tabs of the Form Designer Form

After you open the Form Designer form, and create a form, the tabs of this form become functional. The Form Designer form contains the following tabs:

6.2.1 Additional Columns Tab

You use the Additional Columns tab to create and manage data fields. These data fields are displayed on the associated form that is created by using the Form Designer form.

Table 6-2 describes the data fields of the Additional Columns tab.

Table 6-2 Fields of the Additional Columns Tab

Name Description

Name

The name of the data field that is displayed in the database and is recognized by Oracle Identity Manager.

Note: This name consists of the <TABLENAME_> prefix followed by the name of the data field.

For example, if the name in the Table Name field of the Form Designer form is UD_PASSWORD and the name for the data field is USERNAME, the data field name that is displayed in the database and that Oracle Identity Manager recognizes, would be UD_PASSWORD_USERNAME.

Variant Type

From this lookup field, select the variant type for the data field. The variant type denotes the type of data that the field accepts.

This data field must be one of nine variant types: Byte, Double, Date, Byte Array, Boolean, Long, String, Short, and Integer.

Length

The length in characters of the data field.

Field Label

The label that is associated with the data field. This label is displayed next to the data field on the form that is generated by Oracle Identity Manager.

Field Type

From this lookup field, select the data type of the data field. The data type represents how the data must be displayed in the field.

You can select one of the following data types:

  • TextField: This data field is displayed on the generated form as a text field.

    If the text field is display-only (the text in the field is displayed in red font), a user can use the field only to run a query. Otherwise, the user can also populate the field with information, and save it to the database.

  • LookupField: This data field is displayed on the generated form as a lookup field.

    If this lookup field is display-only, a user can use the field only to run a query. Otherwise, the user can also populate the field with a value from the associated Lookup window, and save this value to the database.

  • TextArea: This data field is displayed on the generated form as a text area.

    If this text area is display-only, a user can only read the information that is displayed in it. Otherwise, the user can also populate the text area with data, and save this information to the database.

  • ITResourceLookupField: This data field is displayed on the generated form as a lookup field. From this lookup field, a user can select a lookup value that represents an IT resource, and save this value to the database.

    Note: If you select this data field, you must specify the type of server for the IT resource from the Property Value field.

    For more information about adding a property value to a data field, see "Adding a Property and Property Value to a Data Field".

  • DateFieldWithDialog: This data field is displayed on the generated form as a text field.

    If this text field is display-only, a user can use the field only to run a query.

    Otherwise, the user can also populate the field with a date and time (by double-clicking the field and selecting a date and time from the Date & Time window). Then, this date and time can be saved to the database.

  • CheckBox: This data field is displayed on the generated form as a check box.

    If this check box is display-only, a user can only see whether the check box is selected or deselected. Otherwise, the user can also select or deselect the check box, and save this setting to the database.

  • PasswordField: The text entered in this field is displayed as a series of asterisk (*) characters.

    If the name of the column with field type as Password Field is PASSWORD and a password policy is attached to the associated resource object, the password entered in this field is verified against the password policy.

  • RadioButton: This data field is displayed on the generated form as an option.

    A user can select or deselect the radio button, and save this setting to the database.

  • DataCombobox: This data field is displayed on the generated form as a list.

    A user can select an item from the list and save this selection to the database.

  • DisplayOnlyField: This data field is not enabled for the user to enter a value. This type of fields can only display data based on values in other fields.

Default Value

This value is displayed in the associated data field after the form is generated and if no other default value was specified from the following scenarios:

  • A pre-populate adapter, which is attached to the form field, is run.

  • A data flow exists between a field of a custom form assigned to one process and a field of a custom form associated with another process.

  • A resource object, which has been requested for an organization, has a custom form attached to it. In addition, one of the fields of this custom form has a default value associated with it. It is strongly recommended that you do not specify default values for passwords and encrypted fields.

Order

The Order field is not used in Oracle Identity Manager 11g Release 2 (11.1.2).

Application Profile

This check box designates if the most recent value of this field should be displayed on the Object Profile tab of the Users form after the resource associated with this form has been provisioned to the user and achieved the Enabled status.

If this check box is selected, the label and value of this field is displayed on the Object Profile tab of the Users form for users provisioned with the resource.

Encrypted

This check box determines if the information, which is displayed in the associated data field, is to be encrypted when it is transmitted between the server and the client.

If this check box is selected, the information that is displayed in the data field is encrypted when it is transmitted between the client and the server.


6.2.1.1 Adding a Data Field to a Form

To add a data field to a form:

Note:

Password fields are encrypted by default. When a data field of password field type is created, the value is displayed as asterisk (*) characters, and the data is encrypted in the database.

  1. In the Additional Columns tab, click Add.

    A blank row is displayed in the Additional Columns tab.

  2. In the Name field, enter the name of the data field, which is displayed in the database, and is recognized by Oracle Identity Manager.

    Note:

    This name consists of the <TABLENAME_> prefix, followed by the name of the data field.

    For example, if the name that is displayed in the Table Name field is UD_PASSWORD, and the name for the data field is USERNAME, the data field name that is displayed in the database and Oracle Identity Manager recognizes, would be UD_PASSWORD_USERNAME.

  3. Double-click the Variant Type lookup field.

    From the Lookup window that is displayed, select the variant type for the data field.

    Currently, a data field can have one of nine variant types: Byte, Double, Date, Byte Array, Boolean, Long, String, Short, and Integer.

  4. In the Length field, enter the length (in characters) of the data field.

  5. In the Field Label field, enter the label that will be associated with the data field.

    This label is displayed next to the data field on the form that is generated by Oracle Identity Manager.

  6. Double-click the Field Type lookup field.

    From the Lookup dialog box that is displayed, select the data type for the data field. Presently, a data field can have one of nine data types: Text Field, Lookup Field, Text Area, IT Resource Lookup Field, Date Field, Check Box, Password Field, Radio Button, and box.

    See Also:

    Table 6-2 for more information about data types

  7. In the Default Value field, enter the value that is displayed in the associated data field once the form is generated, and if no other default value has been specified.

    See Also:

    Table 6-2 for more information about the scenarios where a default value could be set

  8. In the Order field, enter the sequence number, which will represent where the data field will be positioned on the generated form.

    For example, a data field with an order number of 2 is displayed below a data field with an order number of 1.

  9. If you want a specific organization or user's values to supersede the value that is displayed in the Default Value field, select the Application Profile check box. Otherwise, go to Step 10.

  10. If you want the information that is displayed in the data field to be encrypted when it is transmitted between the client and the server, select the Encrypted check box. Otherwise, go to Step 11.

  11. Click Save.

6.2.1.2 Removing a Data Field From a Form

To remove a data field from a form:

Note:

While adding a new field, if you assign it the same name as a field that was removed, the variant type (data type) of the new field remains the same as that of the field that was removed. For example, suppose you remove the Addr1 field to which the String variant type was applied. You create a field with the same name and apply the Boolean variant type to it. Now, when you view or use the form on which the new Addr1 field is added, the variant type of the field is String and not Boolean.

  1. Delete all properties that are associated with the data field you want to remove by following the instructions in Section 6.2.4.3, "Removing a Property and Property Value From a Data Field".

  2. Select the data field that you want to remove.

  3. Click Delete.

    The data field is removed from the form.

While adding a new field, if you assign it the same name as a field that was removed, the variant type (data type) of the new field remains the same as that of the field that was removed. For example, suppose you remove the Addr1 field to which the String variant type was applied. You create a field with the same name and apply the Boolean variant type to it. Now, when you view or use the form on which the new Addr1 field is added, the variant type of the field is String and not Boolean.

6.2.2 Child Table(s) Tab

Sometime you might have to add the same data fields to multiple forms that are created by using the Form Designer form. There are two ways to do this:

  • You can add the data fields to each form manually, through the form's Additional Columns tab.

  • You can group the data fields together and save them under one form name. Then, you can assign this form to each form that requires these data fields.

If this form contains the data fields that are required by another form, it is known as a child table.

Assigning child tables to a form increases your efficiency as a user. Without child tables, for every form that needs data fields, you would have to set the parameters for each field. For example, if five forms require the identical data field, you would have to set the parameters for this field five, separate times (one for each form).

If you use a child table for one form, and decide that you want to apply it to another form, the Design Console enables you to do so. Remove the child table from the first form, and assign it to the target form. This way, the child table that you assign to one form can be reused for all forms created with the Form Designer form.

You can configure Oracle Identity Manager to perform one of the following actions in a column of a child table:

  • Insert: Adds a new value to the designated column of the child table

  • Update: Modifies an existing value from the corresponding column of the child table

  • Delete: Removes a value from the designated column of the child table

See Also:

See Section 5.3, "Process Definition Form" for more information about setting up Oracle Identity Manager to insert, edit, or delete a value from in a column of a child table

For example, suppose that the UD_SOUTH child table is assigned to the Results of 1Q 2004 Sales form (represented by the UD_SALES2 table name). After this form is started, the data fields in the UD_SOUTH child table are displayed in the form.

The following sections describe how to assign a child table to a form and how to remove a child table from a form.

Note:

If the form, which is represented by the child table, has not been made active, you cannot assign it to the parent form.

6.2.2.1 Assigning a Child Table to a Form

To assign a child table to a form:

Note:

If the form that is represented by the child table is active, it will not be displayed in the Assignment window, and you will not be able to assign it to the parent form.

  1. Click Assign.

    The Assignment window is displayed.

  2. From this window, select the child table, and assign it to the form.

  3. Click OK.

    The selected child table is assigned to the form.

6.2.2.2 Removing a Child Table from a Form

To remove a child table from a form:

  1. Select the child table that you want to remove.

  2. Click Delete.

    The child table is removed from the form.

6.2.3 Object Permissions Tab

You use this tab to select the user groups that can add, modify, and remove information from a custom form when it is instantiated.

When the Allow Insert check box is selected, the corresponding user group can add information into the fields of the user-created form. If this check box is not selected, the user group cannot populate the fields of this form.

When the Allow Update check box is selected, the associated user group can modify existing information in the fields of the user-created form. If this check box is not selected, the user group cannot edit the fields of this form.

When the Allow Delete check box is selected, the corresponding user group can delete data from instantiations of the user-created form. If this check box is not selected, the user group cannot delete data from fields of this form (when it is instantiated).

Suppose the SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS user group can create, modify, and delete information that is displayed in the Results of 1Q 2004 Sales form (represented by the UD_SALES2 name in the Table Name field). The IT DEPARTMENT user group can only delete records of this form (its Allow Insert and Allow Update check boxes are not selected). The HR DEPARTMENT user group can create and modify information from within the Results of 1Q 2004 Sales form. However, because the Allow Delete check box is not selected, this user group is not able to delete this information.

The following section describes how to assign a user group to a user-created form, and remove a user group from a user-created form.

6.2.3.1 Assigning a User Group to a User-Created Form

To assign a user group to a user-created form:

  1. Click Assign.

    The Assignment dialog box is displayed.

  2. Select the user group, and assign it to the form that was created by a user.

  3. Click OK.

    The user group is displayed in the Object Permissions tab.

  4. If you do not want this user group to be able to add information into a record of the user-created form, double-click the corresponding Allow Insert check box. Otherwise, go to Step 5.

  5. If you do not want this user group to be able to modify information from within a record of the user-created form, double-click the associated Allow Update check box. Otherwise, go to Step 6.

  6. If you do not want this user group to be able to delete a record of the user-created form, double-click the corresponding Allow Delete check box. Otherwise, go to Step 7.

  7. Click Save.

    The user group is assigned to the user-created form.

6.2.3.2 Removing a User Group From a User-Created Form

To remove a user group from a user-created form:

  1. Select the user group that you want to remove.

  2. Click Delete.

    The user group is removed from the user-created form.

6.2.4 Properties Tab

You use the Properties Tab of the Form Designer Form to assign properties and property values to the data fields that are displayed on the form that is created through the Form Designer form.

For example, suppose that the Results of 1Q 2004 Sales form has two data fields: User Name and Password. Each data field contains the following properties:

  • Required, which determines whether or not the data field must be populated for the generated form to be saved. The default value for the Required property is false.

  • Visible Field, which establishes whether the data field is displayed on the form, once Oracle Identity Manager generates the form. The default value for the Visible Field property is true.

Because the property values for the Required and Visible Field properties are true for both data fields, once the Results of 1Q 2004 Sales form is generated, both of these data fields are displayed. In addition, each field must be populated for the form to be saved.

The following sections describe how to add a property and property value to a data field, and how to remove them from the data field.

Note:

The Properties tab is grayed out until you create a data field for the form by using the Additional Columns tab.

For more information about the properties and property values you can select, see "Rule Elements, Variables, Data Types, and System Properties".

6.2.4.1 Adding a Property and Property Value to a Data Field

To add a property and property value to a data field:

  1. Select the data field to which you want to add a property and property value.

  2. Click Add Property.

    The Add Property dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 6-2.

    Figure 6-2 Add Property Dialog Box

    Add Property Window

    Note:

    The text that is displayed in the Column Name and Column Type fields are the names and types of data fields you selected.

    In this example, the User Name data field was selected (as indicated by User Name displayed in the Column Name field). In addition, the data type of this field is a text field.

    Table 6-3 lists the fields of the Add Property dialog box.

    Table 6-3 Fields of the Add Property Dialog Box

    Name Description

    Column Name

    The name of the data field.

    Column Type

    The data type of the data field.

    Property Name

    From this box, select the property for the data field.

    Property Value

    In this field, enter the property value, which is associated with the property that is displayed in the Property Name box.


    Note:

    The menu items displayed in the Property Name box reflect the data type of the selected data field.

  3. Set the parameters for the property and property value that you are adding to the data field. Figure 6-3 shows the Add Property dialog box with values.

    Figure 6-3 Add Property Dialog Box - Filled

    Add Property Window - Filled

    For this example, because the value of the Required property for the User Name data field was set to true, once the associated form is generated, this field must be populated. Otherwise, the form cannot be saved.

    See Also:

    See "Rule Elements, Variables, Data Types, and System Properties" for more information about the parameters and property values to select

  4. From the Add Property window's Toolbar, click Save.

  5. Click Close.

    The property and property value are added to the data field.

6.2.4.2 Adding a Property and Property Value for Customized Look up Query

To add a property and a property value for a customized lookup query:

  1. Select the data field to which you want to add a property and a property value.

  2. Click Add Property.

    The Add Property dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 6-4.

    Figure 6-4 Add Property Dialog Box

    Add Property Window

    Note:

    The text that is displayed in the Column Name and Column Type fields shows the name and type of the data field you selected (from the Properties tab of the Form Designer).

    In this example, the Name data field was selected (as indicated by Name displayed in the Column Name field). In addition, the data type of this field is a lookup field.

    The boxes of the Add Property dialog box are used to help build the WHERE clause in the custom lookup query. As you select the values for each box (from the menu), the WHERE clause is appended to the custom lookup query.

    Table 6-4 describes the regions of the Add Property dialog box. Initially, all the fields are grayed out. After you have defined the lookup query and clicked Save, the fields become active.

    Table 6-4 Fields of the Add Property Dialog Box

    Name Description

    Column Name

    The name of the data field.

    Column Type

    The data type of the data field.

    Property Name

    From this list, select the property for the data field.

    Property Value

    In this field, enter the property value, which is associated with the property that is displayed in the Property Name box.

    In the case of a lookup query, you must specify both the Oracle Identity Manager form and field, which will be referenced for the query and will be recognized by the database.

    For example, if Oracle Identity Manager is referring to the user's login, you enter select usr_key fromusr in the Property Value field. After clicking Save, the Filter Column is active with all the columns of tables.

    Filter Column

    This is the Oracle Identity Manager form field that is referenced for the lookup query, and which is recognized by the database. This field is populated with all columns of table specified in the Property Value field. If multiple tables are used in the query, all tables are shown.

    For example, usr.USR_LOGIN signifies that Oracle Identity Manager will see the User Login field from the Users form for the lookup query.

    Source

    After the Filter Column variable is selected, the Source field is populated with all possible sources of value. The list of values in this field is dependent upon the type of form, for which the lookup field is being defined. For instance, the list displayed is different if the lookup query is for an Object form or a Process form. The Source field is a user-friendly name for the value that is displayed in the Filter Column box.

    For example, Requester Information refers to the usr.USR portion of the Filter Column value.

    Field

    This field is populated based on what value is selected in the Source field. Use this field to create the SELECT statement, which is needed for the column name.

    For example, the User Login corresponds to the _LOGIN part in the Filter Column value.


    Note:

    The menu items displayed in the Property Name box show the data type of the selected data field.

    The Source and Field boxes of the Add Property dialog box are applicable only when Lookup Query is displayed in Property Name.

  3. Set the parameters for the property and the property value that you are adding to the data field. Figure 6-5 shows the Edit Property dialog box.

    Figure 6-5 Edit Property Dialog Box

    Edit Property Window.

6.2.4.3 Removing a Property and Property Value From a Data Field

To remove a property and property value from a data field:

  1. Select the property and the property value that you want to remove.

  2. Click Delete Property.

    The property and its associated value are removed from the data field.

6.2.5 Administrators Tab

This tab is used to select the user groups that can view, modify, and delete the current record of the form that was created by a user by using the Form Designer form.

When the Write check box is selected, the corresponding user group can view and modify information for the current record of the form. If this check box is not selected, the user group cannot view or edit information for this record.

When the Delete check box is selected, the associated user group can remove information from the current record of the form. If this check box is not selected, the user group cannot delete information from this record.

The following sections describe how to assign administrative privileges to a user group for a record of a user-created form and remove administrative privileges from a user group for a record of a user-created form.

6.2.5.1 Assigning Privileges to a User Group for a Record of a User-Created Form

To assign administrative privileges to a user group for a record of a user-created form:

  1. Click Assign.

    The Assignment dialog box is displayed.

  2. Select the user group, and assign it to the record of the user-created form.

  3. Click OK.

    The user group is displayed in the Administrators tab.

  4. If you want this user group to be able to create and modify information for the current record of the user-created form, double-click the corresponding Write check box. Otherwise, go to Step 5.

  5. If you want this user group to be able to remove information from the current record of the user-created form, double-click the associated Delete check box. Otherwise, go to Step 6.

  6. Click Save.

    The user group now has administrative privileges for this record of the user-created form.

6.2.5.2 Removing User Group Privileges for a Record of a User-Created Form

To remove administrative privileges from a user group for a record of a user-created form:

  1. Select the user group that you want to remove.

  2. Click Delete.

    The user group no longer has administrative privileges for this record of the user-created form.

6.2.6 Usage Tab

In this tab, you can see the resource objects and processes to which the current form has been assigned.

For example, the Solaris form (represented by the UD_SOLARIS name in the Table Name field) was created and assigned to both the Solaris resource object and provisioning process.

Note:

The table name contains the UD_ prefix, followed by the form name. For this example, because the name of the form is Solaris, its table name is UD_SOLARIS.

This tab will be populated with information only after you click Make Version Active.

6.2.7 Pre-Populate Tab

You use this tab is to do the following:

  • Attach a pre-populate adapter to a data field of the user-created form.

  • Select the rule that will determine if this adapter will be executed to populate the designated data field with information.

  • Set the priority number for the selected rule.

  • Map the adapter variables of the prepopulate adapter to their correct locations.

See Also:

Chapter 8, "Using the Adapter Factory" for more information about prepopulate adapters, attaching pre-populate adapters to fields of user-created forms, or mapping the variables of a pre-populate adapter

6.2.8 Default Columns Tab

A form that is created by using the Form Designer form is composed of two types of data fields:

  • Data fields that are created by a user (by using the Additional Columns tab)

  • Data fields that are created by Oracle Identity Manager, and added to the form, once the form is created

Through the Default Columns tab, you can see the names, variant types, and lengths of the data fields, which are added, by default, to a user-created form. As a result, by viewing these data fields, you can see all data fields for this type of form, without starting SQL*Plus, or a similar database application.

6.2.9 User Defined Fields Tab

This tab is used to view and access any user-defined fields that were created for the Form Designer form. Once a user-defined field has been created, it is displayed on this tab and is able to accept and supply data.

6.3 Creating an Additional Version of a Form

Sometimes, when you create a form and populate the tabs of the Form Designer form with information, so the form will work with the process or resource object to which it will be assigned, you might want to create a different version of the form. This way, you can modify this version, without changing the original version of the form.

To create an additional version of a form:

  1. Open the Form Designer form.

  2. Search for the specific form of which you want to create a different version.

  3. Click the Current Version box.

    From the drop-down menu that is displayed, select the version of the form of which you are creating an additional version.

  4. Click the Create New Version button.

    The Create a New Version window is displayed.

  5. In the Label field, enter the name of the additional version of the form.

  6. From the Create a New Version window's toolbar, click Save.

  7. From this toolbar, click Close.

    The additional version of the form is created. When you click the Current Version box, the version's name, which you entered into the Label field in Step 5, is displayed. By selecting this version, you can populate the tabs of the Form Designer form with information, without changing the original version of the form.

If you use the new form version to manage all users, then run the Form Version Control (FVC) utility after the new form version is made active. See "Using the Form Version Control Utility" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager for information about the FVC utility.
