    Hi Trinath,

    This is specific from UWL.

    The UWL uses people picker. Unfortunately UWL (people picker) does not support multitenancy.

    You have some customizing options, by users attributes:

    1) If you want to use the company attribute of the users for the

    searches in the people picker,

    then you have to activate the company concept:


    The company attribute of the user is visible (and edditable) in the

    You can do this by setting

    ume.tpd.companies to

    Also if you set


    The defined companies will be visible as UME groups in the \useradmin
    and you can assign a user to a company by simply assigning him to group

    Please check the link explaining how to change UME properties:

    2) You can set additional user attribute and name it company_attr for example.
    You just have to set:
    ume.admin.addattrs to

    and you can map this attribute to already existing attribute of the user
    in the ldap.

    The company_attr will be editable in the \useradmin in the "customised
    information" tab

    I hope this helps you.



    PS.: If this information helps you, please assign the concerning SDN points 😉

    You can use FM "SWW_Substitution_Define". Here if you define n no ofusers then only those users will appear for the user who is trying to maintain substitute.
