    Can we have the Catalog Items have a variable that will 1) do a people picker from AD or another SAML type connection and 2) pull some base attributes from that lookup?

     

    For instance, a transfer form would not need to have all of the current information about a user to be entered because it is already set as attributes, we would only need the submitter to fill out the new information.  So the requester (assuming that it is not the same as the person being moved) would be picked from a lookup.  Their job title, location, office, Manager type and cost center would be pulled and displayed in the form.  The necessary items would be changed in normal text variables.

    What problem will this feature solve?:
