    Hi,

    We have scheduled the job named "DAP - Synchronize New and Changed Users" in order to create and update automatically resource in our Clarity system.
    The job is working well except that I have to update manually each resource created because some values are not setup automatically at creation such as :
    - Time zone
    - Locale
    - Language
    - Input type code
    - Financial department
    - Financial location
    - Transaction class
    - Resource class

    Is there a way to do this automatically?

    Hi Patrick,
    The LDAP job does not update the values you mention.
    You could update by a XOG update to the users
    - Time zone
    - Locale
    - Language
    Here a thread below:
    https://community.broadcom.com/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MID=764088

    - Input type code
    - Financial department
    - Financial location
    - Transaction class
    - Resource class
    The ones above you could default therm through studio > objects > resource object by giving attribute default values.
    Otherwise by updating the resources via XOG.

    Hi Joxi,

    I tried to setup a default value  in the input type code (via studio > objects > resource object then attributes) but it didn"t work.
    Other financial parameters are not available in the resource object :-(

    Using XOG is of course a solution but it require manual operation when I was expecting to do this automatically.

    Any other idea ?

    HI Patrick,
    If not XOG, I wonder if you could do it by a process.
    Auto-start a process on a given condition.
    Then use a system action to set field values to whatever value required.
    If values will vary, maybe use step pre/post conditions for the process to update what/when

    Hi Jose,

    This sounds a better approach for me compared to XOG because it can be automatically scheduled.
    I never implemented a process but it's the good time to do it.

    Thank you Jose !
