When the provisioning connector updates users between the data store and PingID SDK, it synchronizes users that share an identical Username attribute.

Example scenario:

  • In PingID SDK, Janet's Username is jsmith.
  • In your data store, Janet's sAMAccountName is jsmith.
  • On the Attribute Mapping screen, you map the Username attribute to sAMAccountName.
  • When the provisioning connector runs, the data store user is provisioned with a Username of jsmith. That matches Janet's existing Username in PingID SDK, so her information in the data store is synchronized to her PingID SDK account.
