Possible to use 'Contributor' presentation as a dependent enumeration?

Hi There,

Is it possible to use 'Contributor' presentation as a dependent enumeration? Under the Value Set configuration, I would like the source attribute to be an Enumeration that I've set up (Target Environment), then the dependent enumeration to be a list of 'Contributors' that I could select.

For instance, if Targe Environment A is selected, the dependent attribute should automatically show Bob.

Is this possible?

As far as I know you can not use a contributor attribute in dependent enumeration. You could try to use a Java Script based default value provider that looks at the enumeration value and returns a contributor ID. Unfortunately there is no API in the scripts today that would allow you to find a contributor ID by for example name. You would have to get the ID in the script and print it to find it out and then use it in the script.

Like the answer to your similar other question you could probably use a custom Advisor plug-in to fulfill your requirement.
