When configuring an employee profile, you can choose whether Compliance Accelerator should automatically synchronize these properties with the corresponding attributes.

You can also set up mappings for the following optional properties: Start Date, End Date, and Employee ID. The Employee ID property is mandatory if you want to import department and employee data by using XML files.

You must have the View System Configuration permission to view the existing mappings, and the Modify System Configuration permission to change them. By default, users with the role of Compliance System Admin have both permissions.

To view and modify an existing directory mapping

  1. Click the Configuration tab in the Compliance Accelerator client, and then click the Directory Mappings tab.

  2. In the left pane, click the employee property whose mapping you want to modify.

  3. In the right pane, choose whether to synchronize the employee property with Active Directory, Domino directory, or both.

  4. Type the names of the Active Directory and Domino directory attributes with which to synchronize the employee property.

  5. If you want to synchronize with both Active Directory and Domino directory, nominate one of them as the preferred source.

  6. Click Save.

  7. Restart the Enterprise Vault Accelerator Manager service on the Compliance Accelerator server to put the new mapping or changed mapping into effect.
