Custom Object Fields
We've modified the Fields slide over to enhance the UI and allow the ability to create Object fields.
To create a custom field:
1. Create or edit a source and navigate to the Mappings tab.
2. Click + Add Custom Field to open the Fields slide over, that lists all of the OneSync fields.
3. Create a Custom field or Object field at the top by entering a field name and clicking the blue plus icon.
If you are creating an Object field, you must configure the object:
1. Add the object field -> find the new object in the list of fields.
2. Click the blue gear icon to the right to open its configuration settings.
3. Click the blue encircled plus icon to add keys for the object.
4. Once you've named each key, click the blue Save button to save your object.
We've added to the ability to merge two CSV sources. In other words, the primary CSV source can pull fields and data from a secondary CSV source for shared users.
To set-up a merge:
1. Create or edit a CSV source -> navigate to the mappings tab.
2. Click + Merge with Additional Source to open the Merge Configuration slide over -> In Source Details, switch the toggle to Merge to CSVs -> select CSV for Source Type and a Source File.
3. In the next tab, Source Fields, select a key field in the primary source to a key field in the secondary source. This key will be used to identify key identical users between both sources.
4. Select all the fields and data that you want to pull from the secondary source by clicking the checkbox next to the desired fields.
Multidimensional Data from ODBC
We've added the ability to import array data into OneSync.
To start import multidimensional data from ODBC:
1. Create an ODBC Connection in OS Settings.
2. Create a Custom Object in Custom Fields. To read more about creating Custom Objects, click here.
3. Create or edit a CSV source -> navigate to the mappings tab.
4. Click + Merge with Additional Source to open the Merge Configuration slide over. In Source Details, switch the toggle to Import Custom Object Fields from ODBC -> select ODBC for Source Type and an ODBC connection -> Below, enter a Query to select the desired data from your database.
5. Below the query, enter a Source Object Name. This will be used in the next tab, Source Fields, to identify your object keys, or database fields, to be imported.
6. Also below the query, select the custom OneSync Object field that you created in step 2. a custom object that you created for "OneSync Object".
6. In the next tab, Source Fields, select a key field in the primary CSV source to link to a key field in the secondary OBDC source. These keys will be used to identify identical users between both sources.
7. Map the Source Object keys to the OneSync object keys.
8. Save your source. You are now ready to import your multidimensional data into OneSync. The object keys can be used like any other fields in OneSync for destination mappings and events.
We've added the ability to create and save default, or incomplete, destinations. During the destination creation process, you can select a destination type and save the destination without formally creating collections or mappings. A collection will be automatically generated, using a For All Users condition. Specific, default mappings will be generated based on the destination type.
