Add Custom Schema Attributes

If you are creating your own user interface, and you do not find a schema attribute that you need in the base Oracle Identity Cloud Service schema attributes, you can add your own custom attribute using the Oracle Identity Cloud Service user interface.

  1. In the Identity Cloud Service console, expand the Navigation Drawer, click Settings, and then click Schema Management.
  2. Click the Action menu for the User schema, and then select Edit Schema.
  3. Click Add.

    Important:

    Once you create a custom schema attribute, if data exists for that attribute, you cannot delete it.
  4. Complete the attribute details.
    • Display name: The attribute name that appears in the Attributes page.
    • Name: The attribute name that is recognized by the Oracle Identity Cloud Service server.
    • Description: Provide further information related to its usage and other details that helps the user identify this attribute.
    • Data type: Select String for numerical values or String array for alpha numeric values.
    • Min length: Select the minimum length of the attribute value. Minimum value allowed is 1.
    • Max length: Select the maximum length of the attribute value. The maximum allowed value is 4000.
    • Searchable: If this check box is selected, then the values for this attribute can be used in searches. If it's not selected, then the values can't be used for searches.
  5. Click Save.
The custom attribute is created.

Tip:
