Configuring Active Directory data mapping

Under Customization > Customers > Persons > Workflow > Active Directory Data Mapping, you can control how the Active Directory Synchronization imports Person records from the Active Directory into Alloy Navigator.

  • Field Mapping for New Persons - contains mapping rules for creating new Person records for new users.

  • Field Mapping for Existing Persons - contains mapping rules for updating existing Person records.
