Estimated reading: 3 minutes 278 views

Visual Guard allows you to Map attributes of the modules with the User Profile Attributes defined in the system.

Please Note:                                                                                                                                        For a particular Module Type, few attributes will be default mapped like First Name & Last Name. Their Values will be default displayed in the User Attributes as mentioned in the User Details tab of the user but only after the user account is successfully authenticated by Visual Guard i.e. user has successfully logged in the Visual Guard at least once.

Follow the steps below to map attributes:
