Custom Defined Columns on the Pending Approvals or Other Views Disappear (Doc ID 2771033.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 30, 2023

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version to [Release 11g]
Identity Manager - Version to [Release 12c]
Identity Manager - Version to [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You've updated one of the views to include one or more additional columns.  For example, using steps like:

  1. Added a new task parameter to the ApprovalTask in a custom composite, deployed the custom composite and created a rule in OIM to use the custom composite for some type of approval task.
  2. Created a label and mapped it to the task parameter as a mapped flex-field in BPM Worklist. *
  3. Updated the Pending Approvals view in BPM Worklist to use your newly mapped flex-field.
  4. Verified in OIM that the new column is visible in the Pending Approvals tab for all users.

    *Steps 2-4 are similar to those documented in Note.2485130.1 How to Add Additional Attributes to the List of Tasks Displayed on the Pending Certifications Page.


After the first time that a task is created using your custom composite - the new column disappears from the Pending Approvals view.

However, if you deploy a new version of that same custom composite, the issue will occur again after the first time a task is created using the new version of the composite.
