So as I finished writing the first two installments in this blog series, I realized that there was one thing that I had not yet described how to customize, the search grid. Let’s take a look at the default grid when searching for users, as we can see, it’s fairly basic.
As usual, this is configured from the Entry Type being displayed. As in the case of the previous entries in this series, we are working with MX_PERSON.
Now what if we want to change things up a bit. Again, very simple, just select the attributes that need to be displayed. The Up and Down buttons will help set the attributes in the correct order. Note that in this case, moving an attribute “up” in the listing will result in the attribute being displayed more toward the left in the search grid, “down” moves the attribute to the right.
Here is our display. Note we can sort the results by clicking on the column headers. He we are sorting by Organization (MX_DEPARTMENT)
Here’s another listing sorted by description.
Hopefully this short series will help in the customization of your SAP IDM display. I just noticed that IDM 7.2 SP8 was released to day, which should bring about some new UI elements. Hopefully I’ll be discussing that soon.
