Creating Custom Plugins for User Management Templates

Foundations enables you to create user management template data for licenses, permission sets, and permission set groups to users. These categories are stored as FDN plugin metadata records.

If you want to create user management template data for other items, you can create your own ApexClosed Salesforce's object-oriented, on-demand programming language. class. This enables you to create or update custom items when the Apply User Information job runs. For information about creating an Apex class, see the SalesforceHelp.

To use your own Apex class, create a record for it in the FDN Plugin custom metadata type:

  1. On the Custom Metadata Types page, click Manage Records next to the FDN Plugin custom metadata type.
  2. Click New.
  3. Enter a label for the plugin.
  4. Enter a unique name for this plugin in the FDN Plugin Name field.
  5. Enter the name of the Apex class to use for this plugin.
  6. Click Save.

You can now add data to the template.
