Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

User Enrollment Process

When a user logs on to the User interface, that user can request an account by clicking Request Account on the login page.

Identity Manager displays the first of two registration pages, which requests a first name, last name, and employee ID. If the Enable Validation attribute is set to yes (the default), then this information must be validated before the user can proceed to the next page.

The verifyFirstname, verifyLastname, verifyEmployeeId, and verifyEligibility rules in EndUserLibrary validate the information for each attribute.

Note –

You may need to modify one or more of these rules. In particular, you should modify the rule that verifies the employee ID to use a Web services call or Java class to verify the information.

If the Enable Validation attribute is disabled, then the initial registration page does not display. In this case, you must modify the End User Anonymous Enrollment Completion form to allow the user to enter information normally captured by the initial validation form.

From the information provided on the Registration page, Identity Manager generates:

If the information provided by the user on the Registration page validates correctly, then Identity Manager presents the user with the second Registration page. Here the user must enter a password and password confirmation. If the Require Privacy Policy attribute is set to yes, then the user must also select an option to accept the terms of the privacy policy.

When the user clicks Register, Identity Manager presents a confirmation page. If the Enable Notifications attribute is set to yes, then the page indicates the user will receive email notification when he account has been created.

The account is created after the standard Create User process (including approvals required by the idmManager attribute and policy settings) is complete.
