When you map LDAP data to the Profiles database, you can use that data to create additional tables.
Mapping user data
You can map additional user data to supplemental tables within the Profiles database and then display that data in a user's profile. When the LDAP directory provides a code or abbreviation for a particular setting, the supplemental table can provide extra data. For example, an employeeType of P in the LDAP directory might correspond to Permanent. If the employee-type table is populated with data such as p;permanent, this extra data can be displayed in the profile.
file stores the settings that determine how the tables are populated.
The mapping task for Profiles maps your user data to the following entities:
Add country data to each profile.Fill departments
Add department data to each profile. Fill organization
Add organization data to each profile.Fill employee types
Add employee-type data to each profile.Fill work locations
Add location data to each profile.
A CSV (comma separated value) file is required as input for each of these tasks.
The following sample shows common properties of a CSV file:
The data that can be populated in these tables is usually provided as two values per line: code
For the workloc
code, the values can be code
. For example: WSF;FIVE TECHNOLOGY PARK DR;;WESTFORD;MA;01886-3141
Fields that you do not require in your mapping can be omitted from the file; the example above uses only one addr field.
The mapping relationship between the CSV files and keys is shown in the following list:
Sample CSV file
This sample shows some lines from the isocc.csv
file, which can be used to fill countries data:
ad;Andorra, Principality of
ae;United Arab Emirates
af;Afghanistan, Islamic State of
ag;Antigua and Barbuda
You can find more sample CSV files in the <wizard_files_directory>/TDIPopulation/TDISOL/<aix|lin|win>/samples
directory, where the <wizard_files_directory>
is the location of the various Wizard files that you downloaded or received on disk, and <aix|lin|win>
is the AIX
