The following tutorial explains how to configure field dependencies that tailor the selection list for a User field. Dependencies will be set that limit the selections available in an Employee field depending on the selection made in the Manager field. For example, if a user selects Kathy Manager from the Manager field, Chris Tester and Hans Tester are available selections for the Employee field; if the user selects Joe Manager from the Manager field, Laura Engineer and Newton Engineer are available as selections for the Employee field.
In this step, you will create two User fields and establish a dependency between those fields.

In this step, you will add user selections to the fields created in the previous step. To illustrate the example, sample users are added to the field.

In Application Administrator, you will specify which field selections are available for the dependent field based on the selection users make for the independent field. For example, when a user selects Kathy Manager from the Manager field, Chris Tester and Hans Tester are the only selections available in the Employee field.
