How to Use the Mapping Wizard

This version of Enterprise Single Sign-On includes the Mapping Wizard, which allows you to easily create mappings for affiliate applications.

You can only use the Mapping Wizard if the External UserID is based on the Windows domain account.

  1. Open Enterprise Single Sign-On.

  2. In the scope pane, click Affiliate Applications.

  3. Right click the appropriate affiliate application.

  4. Click Create Mappings. The Mapping Wizard appears.

  5. Welcome to the Mapping Wizard

    • Verify that this is the correct affiliate application, and click Next.

  6. Mappings File Option page

    • ENTSSO manages mappings through an XML file. You can choose to create a new file or use an existing one.

  7. Files Location page

    • Select the files to be used.

    • Click Enable mappings if you want the mappings to be automatically enabled. (If you do not click this, you will have to enable them manually.)
