Introduction

MidPoint objects are quite a social animals. They like to be grouped together. There is often need to show collections of objects, such as employees, active users, new proposed roles and so on. MidPoint has a flexible search and filter functionality that can be used for this purpose. However, those collections are used so often that they deserve a special place in the system. Those collections deserve its own definition, its own name and its own form of presentation. That is the reason why midPoint supports functionality for object collections and views.

Collections and views are two concepts that are very related, but still somehow distinct:

Although collections and view have different purposes and they are based on different mechanisms, they are almost always used together.

Configuration
