Property Mapping


This page reflects the architecture set up during Implementation

  • If the Tenant Structure is set up as People Only architecture, all properties mapped in this section are for the people dataset

  • For a People, Positions and Links architecture, properties will be mapped per dataset type which may be selected using the button for each type


Property Mapping Screen

The property mapping screen contains:

  • A. Source Key Panel
  • B. Color legend: Mapped properties are coloured as either standard or additional properties
    • Standard Properties: Standard properties are a list of recommended properties that many clients have in their source systems. They are not mandatory
    • Additional Properties: All properties that are not in the standard list are added as additional properties
  • C. Display Name: This is the name of the property that will appear in Orgvue. This field is modifiable. Any name can be used to ensure all users will understand its purpose
  • D. Source Key: This is the name of the property that comes from the source files. This field is selected form a drop down list in order to map the properties and is non amendable
  • E. Description: This allows the user to provide a brief description of the property so that users can easily understand what the data represents. This field can be modified
  • F. Property Key: This is a unique value that is assigned to each property and is non amendable. This key is used to differentiate the properties and used in gizmo expressions
  • G. Delete Property: Available for additional properties only
  • H. Archive Property : Available for standard properties only
  • I. Comments: Comments entered during the Implementation process for properties may be viewed


Source Key Panel

The Source Key panel details all source keys available from the files loaded in the Data Structure stage and contains:

SourceKey Panel

  • A. Not Mapped: These are the source keys that have not been mapped to a standard or additional property in Orgvue
  • B. Mapped: These source keys have been mapped to Orgvue properties
  • C. Hovering over the i icon will display a window detailing which file the source key came from
  • D. A source key may be mapped to multiple Orgvue properties and the number of times a source key has been mapped if greater than 1

When the data is refreshed, any source keys that are not mapped will not be loaded
