New self service auth nodes use the term "object" which is ambiguous in the context of AM features and usage


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 7.0.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: None
    • Labels:


      The self service nodes use the term "object" to refer to the user/identity that the node leveraging IDM to mange the user self services functionality. In the context of IDM the term "object" is an established concept to customers and developers but in the context of AM customers and developers its not and is ambiguous to its meaning.

      We should update the terminology both in the customer facing UI and code to be more specific to the feature area of AM and the use case these fields fulfil/relate to.

      Node attributes to change:

      • "Object Type" -> "Identity"
      • "Managed Object Type" -> "Identity"
      • "Identity Attribute" -> "Identity Identifier"?
      • "Patch As Object" -> "Perform as Identity"? Not sure on this one yet...
      • Display Username node has attribute: "User Name" -> "User Name Attribute"
      • Identity Existing User node has attribute: "Identifier" -> "Shared State Identifier"

      Nodes using "object" term:

      • Platform Username:
      • Platform Password
      • Identify Existing User
      • Email Template Node
      • Email Suspend Node
      • Time Since Decision
      • Terms and Conditions Decision
      • Required Attributes Present
      • Query Filter Decision
      • Profile Completeness Decision
      • Patch Object - Rename to `Update Identity`
      • KBA Verification
      • KBA Definition
      • KBA Decision
      • Display Username
      • Create Object -> Rename to `Create Identity`
      • Consent Collector
