3.3 Field Mapping

Field Mapping Feature Overview

The field mapping feature in Trustle is designed to streamline the integration of user attributes between external systems (such as identity providers) and Trustle. This feature ensures accurate and efficient synchronization of user data, enhancing identity management and access control within Trustle. Administrators can select the optional fields to make them mandatory for user creation.

User Profile Information

The "User Profile Information" section allows administrators to link specific attributes from the integrated system to Trustle. Key attributes include:

  • Email: This is a mandatory field that maps directly to the user's email address.
  • Manager: Maps to the user's manager.
  • Type: Maps to the type of employee, such as full-time or part-time.
  • Department: Maps to the department the user belongs to.
  • Role: Maps to the user's role within the organization.
  • Title: Maps to the user's job title.

These mappings ensure that essential user information from the external system is correctly reflected in Trustle, facilitating seamless user management.

Trustle User Type

The "Trustle User Type" section is used to identify and categorize users based on information from the integrated system. Administrators can use Regex patterns to create rules around what qualifies a user as that specific type.

Key user types include:

  • Employee: Matching users whose "Employee Type" is exactly "employee" as defined in the Regex.
  • Contractor: Matching users whose "Employee Type" is exactly "contractor" as defined in the Regex.
  • Customer: Matching users whose "Employee Type" is exactly "customer" as defined in the Regex.
  • System: Matching users whose "Employee Type" is exactly "system" as defined in the Regex.

These categorizations allow administrators to effectively manage different types of users based on predefined criteria, ensuring that user roles and permissions are accurately assigned.

Usability

The interface is user-friendly and straightforward, with clear fields for entering attribute names and their corresponding mappings. The "Test" button provides functionality to validate the mappings before applying them, ensuring accuracy and reducing errors.

Conclusion

The field mapping feature in Trustle is a powerful tool for integrating user data from external systems. By mapping user attributes and categorizing users based on regex patterns, Trustle ensures accurate and efficient synchronization of user information. This enhances the overall management of user identities and access controls within the platform, providing a streamlined and effective approach to identity management.
