Configure Identities

Identity Cloud lets you configure how the Identity Cloud Admin UI behaves when managing identities.

The configuration settings are applied to the UI for administrator users and delegated end users. They are global so apply to all realms.

View configuration

The configuration settings are grouped by identity profile, so they can be set independently for users, roles, assignments, and so on.

To view the configuration for an identity profile:

  1. In the Identity Cloud Admin UI, go to Identities > Configure to view a list of identity profiles.

  2. Click on an identity profile. For example, if you want to configure the UI for managing user identities, click Users.

General settings

Require UI Search Filter

This setting will apply a minimum length filter to an identity search field before performing a search operation. This speeds up the time to retrieve records where there is a large identity data set.

To apply a UI search filter to an identity profile:

  1. Follow the steps above to view configuration for the identity profile you want to change; for example, user identities.

  2. Check the Require UI Search Filter checkbox.

  3. Enter a number greater than zero in the Minimum Characters field.

  4. Click Save.

Then, to check that the UI search filter has been applied:

  1. Go to Identities > Manage, and select the identity profile that corresponds to the one you configured in the previous steps.

  2. Enter a term in the Search field, and ensure that results are returned only when the minimum number of characters have been entered.
