Sun Identity Manager Deployment Reference

Understanding Method Context

Any FormUtil method that needs to access the Identity Manager repository will need a context object.The Lighthouse context represents an authenticated session, which is subject to authorization checking to enforce visibility and action restrictions.

Fetching Context

Most FormUtil methods require that a LighthouseContext or Session object be passed as the first argument by referencing the view attribute display.session. Since forms are often used with a base context prefix, it is recommended that the display.session reference always be preceded with a colon (:display.session) to remove the base context prefix.
