User Maps

User maps define users that have different user names across multiple datasources. For example, a user may be User1 in one datasource and UserA in another. User maps allow you to map these two users together so that Micro Focus Connect knows they are the same user. Use the following sections to learn how to create a user map and then to turn it on at a field level.

Create a user map

  1. On the main Micro Focus Connect UI, click the User Maps tab.
  2. Click Add User Map.
    A row is added to the list.
  3. Double click the User Map text in the Name field.
  4. Rename the user map. This value is only used in Micro Focus Connect and can be whatever you want it to be.
  5. In the user map row, click (Add).
    A new user name row is added as a child to the user map.
  6. In the Datasource column, double click the new row to enable the list. Select the proper datasource for the user.
  7. Double click the user name text in the Name field and type in the user name as it exists in that datasource.
  8. Follow the same steps to add additional users/datasources to the user map.

Enable a user map

After you create a user map, you need to turn it on for the user fields.

To enable a user map:

  1. Click the Connections tab.
  2. Double-click a connection to open it.
  3. Click Next to Navigate to the Types and Fields tab.
  4. Select a type and click (Edit).
  5. For each user-based field in the list, select the Enable User Map column.
