countIdentitiesBySearchableIdentityAttribute method of IDN Rule Util

Does this method take care of searching on multi valued attributes?
public int countIdentitiesBySearchableIdentityAttribute(String attributeName, String operation, String value)

For example: If an identity has department : {Finance, HR, IT} where department attribute is multi valued, we want to check if there are identities with Finance as one of the values, does the above method give non zero results?

Hi @rash_sarathi

An Identity Attribute can’t be multivalue, you are talking about a single value concatenated like this: “value1, value2, value3”.
supported operations for method countIdentitiesBySearchableIdentityAttribute() are “StartsWith” or “Equals” and in your case “StartsWith” can help you to solve the problem.
