    I have deployed the repo(UseCases) for DeploymentXpress and deployed the useCase Create Employee by HR.

    The Task ran successfully. But i have questions:-

    Q1. How does the Login Id been generated and where does it generated ?

    Q2. Why the User ID been set with unique_id value ? Can this be change to follow Login ID ?


    Note: I tried to search PX, AdminTask & Screen, can't find where these 2 value been set, anyone know ?

    Hi William,



    All of this is generated by Logical Attribute Handlers that you will find in your IM Management Console, in your environment's Advanced Settings:



    Yes, Login ID and User ID can be set to the same value.

    You can find more information about the Logical Attribute Handlers in IM 14.1 here:

    Thanks for the Info, Russi.


    Just wonder, we can find & obtain the source code on "User ID Builder Handler" from IM and then modify it to become

    version 2, is that possible ?


    Am asking this question, is because customer have different logic on building/generating their UserID

    Does the User ID builder handler check on UserStore for existing userid before generate new userid ?

    and can we add additional function to check on "reserved table for userid" ? where generated new userid will not use the userid(s) in reserved table


    I understand that we can configure different User ID Format for the handler, like %L,3%%F,3%%C,3% .
