Role Participant Resolvers

With role type participant resolvers, CA IdentityMinder retrieves all of the members for that role and returns those members as participants.

If no resolver type is specified in the UserData parameter of the Activity dialog box, the role type resolver is used by default.

If you do not specify any participant resolvers in the User Data tab of the WorkPoint Activity Properties dialog box, by default, CA IdentityMinder finds all available roles containing this approval task and returns back those role members as participants.

To configure role participant resolvers

  1. Start WorkPoint Designer.
  2. Click File, Open, Process.
  3. Select a workflow process and click Open.
  4. Right click the activity node in the process, and select Properties.
  5. Select Text from the Type drop-down menu.
  6. Enter the following in the User Data tab:
  7. Click Add.

    Note: This role does not need to contain any approval tasks.

  8. Select Text from the Type drop-down menu.
  9. In the User Data tab, enter the following name/value pair (optional):

    Value—APPROVERS_REQUIRED

    Value—YES.

  10. Click Add.

    Note: The default approval setting is APPROVERS_REQUIRED=NO. In this case, an activity is approved automatically if no participants are found.

    If APPROVERS_REQUIRED=YES and CA IdentityMinder finds no participants, the activity is not successfully completed.

  11. Click OK to save your changes.
