Identity fields

It is possible to adjust the property associated with a field in user self-service. Properties that are used by self-service functions can be set using identity field properties in your configuration. For example, if you had changed the mail property in managed/user to instead be email, you would then update identityEmailField in your self-service configuration to be "identityEmailField" : "email",. There are currently six identity fields that can be customized:

  • identityServiceUrl - sets where self-service stores and retrieves its data, such as managed/user.

  • identityUsernameField - sets the property associated with the username of the user.

  • identityEmailField - sets the property associated with the email address of the user.

  • identityPasswordField - sets the property associated with the password of the user.

  • identityIdField - sets the property associated with the ID of the user, which is used when performing user queries.

  • identityAccountStatus - sets the property associated with the account status of the user, which is used when performing user queries.

Not every identity field is used in each self-service stage. For more information about which fields are required for each stage, see Self-service stage reference.

If you have removed usernames from your managed/user schema in favor of using another property (such as email), you will still need to set identityUsernameField to the new property in order for self-service to function correctly.
