When you map manager data to the Profiles database, you can use that data to create report-to chains.
The Mark manager mapping task in the Profiles population wizard marks the profiles of those users who are also managers. That data is referenced when displaying profile data and is also used to generate report-to chains for users. The data is stored in the profiles_tdi.properties
The Mark manager mapping task for Profiles maps this data as follows:
A Y or N attribute is assigned to an employee to indicate whether the employee is listed as a manager of other employees. The isManager field in an employee record might not be identifiable from looking up the LDAP or by using a mapping function. Select this task to iterate through all of the employee records and set the isManager field to Y for any referenced managers.
