Trigger Happy Oracle Identity Manager - part 7 - enable user or disable user

When a user is enabled all the tasks that have the attribute "Enable Process or Access to application" are triggered. The attribute is set with a special drop down list box in the task definition form of the process definition.
All the tasks in all the resource objects linked to this OIM user are triggered. One could question why Oracle development hasn't chosen the construction with the lookup.usr triggers like has been described in an other post. But that is the wonderful world of OIM.
For this series is good, yet another way to trigger tasks in the Oracle Identity Manager world.

The drop down list box also contains the option "Disable Process or Access to application" and the "No effect" option.
This is a trigger just setup for the enabling the user.
