Dynamic form - localization

The aim of this tutorial is show the way, how to add localization for dynamic form.

  • You need to install CzechIdM 8.1.0 (and higher). We have CzechIdM installed for this tutorial on server http://localhost:8080/idm.
  • Create an identity, which has permission to work with dynamic forms (at least read form definitions and attributes). We are using the default admin:admin identity.

We will create new dynamic form for identity. From will be shown on identity detail on 'More information' tab.

Go to menu 'Settings' → 'Form definitions' and add new definition:

  • Type - eu.bcvsolutions.idm.core.model.entity.IdmIdentity
    • type is spinal-casedeu-bcvsolutions-idm-core-model-entity-idmidentity and used as section in localization file under eav section.
  • Code - myform
    • code is spinal-casedmyform and used as section in localization file under type eu-bcvsolutions-idm-core-model-entity-idmidentity section.
  • Name - Awesome form

Define form attributes as bellow (required is code and name only, other attribute properties are optional for this tutorial):

On form definition detail new tab 'Form localization' was added:

Copy form definition section from how-to, then go to core module frontend localization files (src/locales/…) and paste it under eav.eu-bcvsolutions-idm-core-model-entity-idmidentity section (or create her, if doesn't exist). Then localization values (attribute labels, helps, placeholders) can be edited:

"myform": {
  "label": "My awesome form",
  "help": "This is my new awesome form",
  "attributes": {
    "phone": {
      "label": "My phone",
      "help": "Enter your phone",
      "placeholder": "Enter your favorite phone"
    "email": {
      "label": "My email",
      "help": "Enter your email",
      "placeholder": "Enter your favorite email"

Go to identity detail and More information tab, you can see:
