EmpowerID retrieves attribute values for each user account in a connected account store and maps them value for value to the corresponding Person attributes stored in the EmpowerID Identity Warehouse. In this way, if the value of "State" for an AD user account is "Massachusetts" then the value of "State" for that account's Person object in EmpowerID is "Massachusetts." However, EmpowerID allows you to create your own Attribute Flow Handlers to customize these values. You do this by creating a class library in Workflow Studio that inherits from the DefaultAttributeflowHandler class and by overriding the method specific to the account store (external or EmpowerID) you wish to effect. For more information on customizing Attribute Flow, see Creating Custom Attribute Flow Handlers in the Developer's Guide.

The Mail attribute should always flow from Exchange to EmpowerID.

How to configure Attribute Flow

  1. On the navbar, expand Admin > Applications and Directories and click Attribute Flow Rules.

  2. On the Attribute Flow Rules page, click the Advanced Search drop-down button, enter the name of the account store for which you want to configure the flow rules and then click Search to filter the rules shown in the grid.

  3. To change the flow for an attribute, click the Attribute Flow drop-down located between the Person Attribute column and the External Directory Attribute column, and select the desired flow direction from the context menu.

  4. To change the score for any of the available CRUD operations (Create, Update and Delete), enter the new score in the appropriate field. By default, scores are weighted evenly, which means that a change to an attribute originating in one connected external directory has the same authority as a change to an attribute occurring in another connected external directory.
