User Group Mapping is the process of linking profile field and User Groups. Based on the profile field values, Users are automatically added to the selected user groups when the user logs in to the LMS.
In the People tab, click User Profile Fields.
In the User Group Mapping tab, click the toggle to enable User Group Mapping.
Select a Field (1) and enter the Field Value (2) query, which then triggers the selected User Group (3) assignment.
Additional field values are listed as line-separated queries.
Note that the same User Group can’t be used in multiple field mappings, to prevent mapping conflicts.
When adding Field Value queries, use an asterisk to signify a “wildcard” character. A wildcard character may be zero or any number of any characters.
For example: An Admin wants all users with a “208” area code in their Mobile phone to be added to the Idaho user group. Adding an * after 208 means that any phone number starting with 208 is included in the proper user group mapping.
Click Save to apply the User Group Mapping.
When a User Group Mapping is configured, the user groups are added or removed every time the learner logs in. After a profile field value is changed, the new user groups won’t trigger until the user logs in.
