Incremental Resource Fetching

Incremental resource fetching describes one method used by the Identity Manager server to directly query a resource for information over a network connection or by other means. Typically, when an administrator edits a user using the default user form, all resources that are owned by a user are fetched at the moment an administrator begins editing a user account. In contrast, the intent behind the design of scalable forms is to limit fetching by fetching only those resources that the administrator wants to view or modify.
