Input validation in object form

Hi all,

Need your input regarding our daily operational problem. User can input their user id when requesting for a resource. And there's one resource that didnot include employee number in user id to be generated, so there's a possiblity there will be a duplicate user id in that resource which is not allowed.

So if there's any way to validate user id which already inputted by user in object form, in order to avoid failed provisioning (meaning that if he/she input already existed user id in target application, it is not allowed)

Thanks a lot.

    Assuming you can automatically generate a new and valid id you can basically do the validation at any step of the approval and provisioning process. Another option would be to fail the approval.

    If you need on form validation you might be able to do it with a GUI customization but that is more complex and will result in maintenace issues.

    Thanks for the response.

    Unfortunately the procedure was to let user to decide/input user id they like, that's why we can not generate user id.

    About option to fail the approval, how to make it happen ? Thanks.

    Just build in a validation step first in the approval process and fail if the login is a duplicate.

    If you need validation on the page you would need to do GUI customization using AJAX or similar technologies.
