Dynamically Populating the Organization Field

If the user store that CA IdentityMinder manages includes organizations, the default Create User task includes an Organization field. An administrator must search for and select the appropriate organization before creating a user profile.

To simplify the Create User task, you can configure CA IdentityMinder to populate the Organization field dynamically, based on the administrator who is executing the task. In this case, the administrator does not have to specify an organization. The user is created in the organization where the administrator's profile exists. For example, if an administrator, whose profile exists in the Employees organization, creates a user profile for a new hire, CA IdentityMinder creates the new profile in the Employees organization. If an administrator in the Suppliers organization uses the same Create User task, the profile for the new user that the second administrator creates would exist in the Suppliers organization.
