I’ve implemented a number of PRD’s that allow an admin to modify attributes on a User, or other object, to facilitate provisioning. The motivation to write this arose mostly out of the difficulties in setting/displaying a Boolean, and in “deselecting” a pick list. Enjoy.
Finding all the steps to create and maintain a UserApp/RBPM custom theme (or themes) took me a while. I thought that if I could save even one other person the pain of digging up all of the steps, then writing a Cool Solution would be worthwhile. I hope this helps make your life a little easier.

Having poked Jeff, I now only hope that my content is accurate and I won’t be raked over the coals by him. (I also hope reward points are calculated on tip value, not on word count. )
