ProcedureTo Determine Provisioning Date and Time by Evaluating a Rule

This section provides instructions to help you determine the provisioning date and time by evaluating a specific rule.

  1. Select Rule from the Determine sunrise from menu.

    The following options become active:

    • Sunrise Rule menu. Provides a list of rules currently defined for your system.

    • Specific Date Format checkbox and menu. Enables you to specify a date format string for the rule’s returned value (if necessary).

    If you do not enable the Specific Date Format checkbox, date strings must conform to a format that is acceptable to the FormUtil method’s convertDateToString. Consult the product documentation for a complete list of supported date formats.

  2. Select a rule from the Sunrise Rule menu.

  3. If necessary, enable the Specific Date Format checkbox and when the Specific Date Format field becomes active, enter a date format string.

    For example, to provision a new user based on the Email rule using a year, month, day, hours, minutes, and seconds format specify the information shown in the following figure.
