Configuring Identity Mapping

Mapping users' Jive identity to their SharePoint identity allows users to use Jive to view SharePoint content they have permission to see.

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > Jive for SharePoint > Settings

By default, users are mapped by matching the SharePoint email address to the Jive email address. To change this, you can select Map by SharePoint username under Identity Mapping and select the Jive field(s) you want to map to the user name.

Jive users can be mapped to SharePoint users using several options:

Map by SharePoint email address:
You can map a SharePoint user's email address to a field in Jive. The default setting is the user's email in Jive, but you can set this to any field in the Jive's user profile that uses an alphanumeric string.
Note: You can use a custom field in the user's profile in Jive for this user mapping.
Use single Jive profile field (Username):
Maps a SharePoint user name to a field in Jive. You can use any string field in Jive.
Use multiple Jive profile fields (Domain\Username):
This option should be used to map by two fields, one that contains the Domain and one that contains the username. For example, you could use domain and username/email.
