If the application at your site uses different names for user attributes than the names defined by the Attribute Authority, then you need to map them on this screen. When the SP receives a request from a local application to send an Attribute Query to this Attribute Authority partner, the requested user attributes are replaced with the names mapped here.
This information must be predetermined in your agreement with this connection partner.
- To map an attribute, configure the Local Name and Remote Name fields for the attribute and then click Add.
To modify an attribute name, follow these steps:
- Click Edit under Action for the attribute.
Make the change and click Update.
If you change your mind, ensure that you click Cancel under Action.
- To delete an attribute, click Delete under Action for the attribute.
