I'm just getting to try this out now. It would be pretty useful for setting up and fine tuning the subject properties. It's good that it's calling the same UI functions as the regular pages do. We have customized icons and label strings for various sources, and this page is displaying them correctly.


The source ID drop down list doesn't really show the "IDs" but rather the names. As an admin, I would be able to pick out subjects easier from an ID like "pid" or "app" instead of "person source" or "application source". The order also seems random, so it takes a while to find the right source. I didn't notice before, but the source drop down in the Search for an Entity form is the same way.


The _javascript_ that fills in the fields with default values gets in the way, as it erases anything I have entered in the fields, whenever I change the source option. For me, it would be better to have the fields blank, but mention what the default CheckConfig search terms are in the field label or description.

I put out a patch which includes this, let me know if you have comments:


If you have an account on the demo server you should be able to see it in action here:


So yes, in the future when people have trouble configuring sources, hopefully this will help J

I am working on an admin tool in the UI which would help set up subject sources and identify problems with them.


I would like to add a section that shows what subjects look like in the UI in various places (and why).


Any comments or anything else you would like to see?








Here is the full report (note passwords are not displayed, only admins can see the link and page):
