Configure Object-based Navigation

Tasks that are configured for object-based navigation include only a search screen. Users search for an object to manage, and then use pop-up task menus to view all the tasks that they can perform on that object.

When you configure object-based navigation, note the following:

To configure object-task navigation

  1. Complete one of the following steps:

    Note: To simplify configuration, consider creating a copy of an existing Manage task, such as Manage User. The default Manage tasks include the configuration settings required for object-task navigation.

    CA IdentityMinder displays the tabs to configure for the task you selected.

  2. Configure the settings for the Profile tab as needed. Set the Action for the task to Search.
  3. Select the Search tab and click Browse to configure the search screen for the task.

    CA IdentityMinder displays a list of search screens that you can apply to this task.

  4. Select the search screen that you need.

    Note: To simplify configuration, consider creating a copy of an existing Manage search screen definition with the same object type, such as Manage Users Search. The default Manage search screens are configured to support object-task navigation.

  5. Complete the fields in the search screen configuration screen as needed.

    Note: If you do not want to include separate tasks in the menus for creating an object or deleting multiple objects, you can configure the search screen to have buttons to launch these tasks. You can then hide those tasks in the menus.
