Dear Experts,

Usually we run mass load jobs via identity center, through input file. similarly can we upload the file from std ui and then run the mass load jobs. Can you kindly help me out how is it possible?

I see that in attribute properties -> Presentation Tab -> File option in IDM 8.0.

So using this attribute i can be providing the file location. Now how to run the job and how the data in the input file will be saved.

how to customize the job such that it updates only particular attribute?

Hi DP,

what we usually do is create a web UI with a custom attribute created as a file type (as you mentioned). This allows the end user to search for a file on his/her own computer and upload it to idm.

Then we attach a process to this form (on submit), containing a script that will write the file on the server (using standard IDM functions uToHex / uToFile) and then trigger a job (uRunjob) that will read the file and write corresponding data into the IDstore.

All of this using different custom constants with filename, filedirectory, jobid to run etc etc...

Does that answer your question?
