Transformation scripts

Often, CzechIdM transform data from source system to managed system. For example CzechIdM wants to fill Active Directory's attribute diplayName that is of format <firstName + LastName>. CzechIdM offers using a transformation script during Synchronization and Provisioning.

 Transformation during provisioning

Filling one attribute from 2 entity (identity in our case) attributes, the script is as simple as that:

entity.firstName + " " + entity.lastName
