If you decide to map the credential Card format property to an Active Directory attribute, that attribute must contain either a numeric value (for standard card formats) or the exact card format name (text).

The following table describes the standard card formats supported by Security Center, their numeric values, and the valid ranges for the facility code (also known as Company ID Code) and card number (also known as Card ID Number).

Number Format name (Text) Facility code range Card number range
0 Standard 26 bits 0 to 255 0 to 65 535
1 HID H10306 34 Bits 0 to 65 535 0 to 65 535
2 HID H10302 37 Bits Not required1 0 to 34 359 738 367
3 HID H10304 37 Bits 0 to 65 535 0 to 524 287
4 HID Corporate 1000 (35 bits) 0 to 4095 0 to 1 048 575
5 HID Corporate 1000 (48 bits) 0 to 4 194 303 0 to 8 388 607

1 If HID H10302 37 Bits is the only card format referenced in your CSV file, it is preferable to bind the card number to the Security Center Card data field instead of the Card number field since the facility code is not required. Because a single value is stored in the Credential card data field, no separator character is needed.

IMPORTANT: For custom card formats, you must use the exact spelling used to create the custom card format.
