Create a custom field for unique IDs in your data sources and in Security Center before importing entities. Following this best practice will facilitate troubleshooting if you delete the plugin, and then re-create it. You will be able to merge all duplicate imported entities at the same time.
The duplicate imported entities will be merged after you add a Security Center data source that uses the unique ID global key for each entity type.
Data source configuration
Before adding data sources to the Card Synchronization plugin, include an additional custom field for each entity type in your data sources.
- Use a descriptive name as the CustomFieldName. Example: <ExternalSystemName>UniqueID.
- The values of EntityUniqueId and of CustomFieldValue are the unique ID of the cardholder, cardholder group, or credential.
In cardholder, cardholder group, and credential files, include an additional column to enter the unique ID of each entity.
Security Center configurationCreate a custom field that uses the text data type for each of the following entity types:
- Cardholder groups
