Insight field to autopopulate based on previous insight field

Hi, I posted this on a previous thread but didn't get an answer, hoping someone can help. 

I have a custom insight field referencing the User object in my cmdb, and I wanted to use a custom referenced insight field to display the "Employee ID" field from the User object. So when a user is selected from the first custom field, the referenced field will populate with the employee ID from that User selected. 

On the previous thread I linked above, they say to use a normal insight field instead of the referenced one, and use the IQL to fetch the other field.
I have an insight field for the user. So am I creating a read only insight field for the employee ID? How do I link these 2 fields?

My user field is an insight object custom field with:
objecttype = User

And then I have an insight readonly field that I am trying to pull the Employee ID field from the previous chosen user, not sure what I am supposed to put in her to link it to the other field:


Does the Employee ID need to be it's own object in the CMDB for me to reference this? Or can anyone advise how I can do this? Thanks.

I don't think there is a way to create a custom field that is *just* an insight object attribute.  If you want to display the employee ID as a separate custom field, you'll need to add Employee ID as a totally separate custom field, each employee ID would need to be a separate Insight object. 




Hi Kian, 

Thanks for the response!

Do you think something like this could be achieved using a Scripted Field - custom field?
