Access and Use
Attribute mapping appears on the provisioning screen for an app. Select Applications from the Dashboard, add or select an app, and then select Provisioning. Attribute mapping appears at the bottom of the provisioning window, as shown below.
Unmapped attributes that are not required are not shown. There is a link at the bottom of the list to show or hide unmapped attributes.
The two buttons at the top of the list apply to all attributes.
The two icons next to each field apply to that field only.
When the attribute editor opens, a screen similar to the one shown below opens for the particular attribute. For all attributes, there is a choice to create the mapping, or to create and update the mapping.
Note that the mapped value for the attribute is shown for the current user. You can change the user to any other user in your org for whom the app is assigned.
There are three mapping choices for each attribute shown in the first drop down field.
If the app’s attribute has a fixed set of values to choose from, the edit screen is different. All possible values for the attribute will be displayed in a list or as check boxes. Select the one that will apply to all app users by default, as shown in the image below.
In this example, all users are mapped with the Marketing User and Chatter Answers User feature licenses.
