When you create an account template, you can use rules strings to define the format of many account attributes. Rule strings are variables for the actual value. Rules strings are useful when you want to generate attributes that change from one account to another. When rules are evaluated, CA Identity Manager replaces the rule strings entered in the account templates with data specified in the user object.
A scenario has been identified with the following behavior:
When setting the Account ID equal to %UE% (User Email Address) even with strong sync enabled the Account Id does not get synchronized.
Release : 14.x
Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)
This cannot be achieved through template synchronization. To overcome this issue you must create a PX (Policy Xpress) policy to set the attributes after synchronization.
For more information on Attributes and Rule strings, please refer to the CA Identity Manager Product documentation.
