Transform attributes using a mapping
You can use a mapping to define attribute transformations during synchronization. In the following sample mapping excerpt, the value of the
displayName attribute on the target is set using a combination of the
firstName attribute values from the source:
For transformations, the
source property is optional. However, a source object is only available if you specify the
source property. Therefore, in order to use
source.firstName to calculate the
displayName, the example specifies
"source" : "".
If you set
"source" : "" (not specifying an attribute), the entire object is regarded as the source, and you must include the attribute name in the transformation script. For example, to transform the source username to lowercase, your script would be
source.mail.toLowerCase();. If you do specify a source attribute (for example,
"source" : "mail"), just that attribute is regarded as the source. In this case, the transformation script would be
From the navigation bar, click Configure > Mappings, and select a mapping.
Select the line with the target attribute value to set.
When you use the UI to map a property with an encrypted value, you are prompted to set up a transformation script to decrypt the value when that property is synchronized. The resulting mapping looks similar to the following, which shows the transformation of a user’s
