2148513 - To update user custom columns outside of default custom columns via standard User Connectors

Symptom

In LMS we provide 15 default user custom columns and have predefined connectors mapping for those columns as below:

But sometimes customers have more than 15 custom columns for users and want to update them via User Connectors.

Environment

SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) - All Supported Versions

Resolution

Below is the approach to achieve that (the same rule should apply to other standard connectors):

1. Create the custom columns via System Admin > Custom Columns > User (Let’s say we created a custom column #21 in the UI)

2. Add mapping rule to Connectors Configuration File (System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > Connectors) as user.field.customcolumn.21=CUSTOM21

3. Run the User Connectors with an input file containing value for custom column #21 (Column Name should be "CUSTOM 21)
