|Oracle Identity Analytics Business Administrator's Guide 11g Release 1|
Custom properties and extended custom properties save custom user information in the Identity Warehouse. Out-of-the-box, Oracle Identity Analytics features twenty custom properties. If you need more than twenty custom properties, you can enable extended user custom properties and use them the same way.
In the user interface, custom properties are displayed by choosing Identity Warehouse > Users > User Name, and clicking the Custom Properties tab, whereas extended custom properties are displayed by clicking the User Defined Properties tab.
Custom properties and extended custom properties can be populated with user data either by importing the data or by using the user interface.
Open the idw-context.xml file located in $RBACX_WAR/WEB-INF.
Scroll down to the section of the file that contains the comment Add Extended Global User Attributes and locate the following lines:
<!-- <value>extendedAttribute1</value>--> <!-- <value>extendedAttribute2</value>-->
Remove the comment tags from around the extended property lines. (Remove the <!-- and --> tags for each extended attribute that you want to enable.)
To create additional extended user properties, copy and paste additional extended property values in the idw-context.xml file and increment the number as needed (for example, extendedAttribute3, extendedAttribute4, and so on).
Change extended attribute label names as needed by editing the rbacxmessages.properties file and adding a line for each extended user property. For example:
user.extendedAttribute1=Sample Label Name 1 user.extendedAttribute2=Sample Label Name 2
See To Modify User Labels for more information.
