  2. Select the system entity type you want to show in the list from the Entity Type drop-down field. Available options are:
    • Group – To show the end user a list of Groups.
      • Selecting this option causes the Associated Group Types field to display. If you would like to filter the list and only show Groups of a specified type, enter the required Group Type into this field and select the required option from the results that display.


    • Organisation – To show the end user a list of Organisations.
    • Org Unit – To show the end user a list of Organisation Units.
  3. Select the Linked Objects expandable section and then complete the following for each place the custom attribute needs to display:


    1. Select the system object from the Object drop-down field. This is where the system entity selection list will display for end users.
    2. Enter text into the Caption field. This text will be the label for the system entity selection list.
    3. Enter text into the Hint Text field (optional). This will provide the end user with a hint when they hover over the Hint question mark icon next to the custom attribute.
    4. Select the Mandatory checkbox to set the system entity selection list as an item that must be completed (optional).
