  2. Choose generic object: RCM2kmslookup mapping
  3. Click Export
  4. Go to Admin Center > Monitor Job > and download the rcm2kmslookup mapping file.
  5. The file is comprised of the following 4 fields:
    1. external code - It will be empty. When uploading a file, BizX will automatically calculate the value for this field.
    2. option id - It will fetch from option id of picklist file for the particular field (Admin Center > Picklist Mangement > Download Picklist File)
    3. lookup name - It will fetch the Lookupname from the data dictionary.
    4. lookup code - It will fetch from reference files > data lists.

  • For state field:Lookupname is StateCountry
  • For gender field:Lookupname is Gender.

  1. Under Admin Tools > Setup Onboarding Integration > perform mapping between RCM and ONB

Example: Gender in Onboarding 1.0 is mapped to Gender in RCM

  1. For the Onboarding 1.0 field, BizX gets the corresponding RCM field. For the RCM field, picklist id is retrieved from Job Requisition, Job Application and Job offer templates. For RCM field “Gender”, it finds the picklist id in job req template. 
  2. RCM fetches the option id from picklists for picklistId “Gender”.
  3. ONB gets the LookupName Onboarding 1.0 associated with Data Dictionary fields.
  4. With the optionid and lookupname (step 3 ,4) Onboarding 1.0 searches for lookupcode.
  5. For the corresponding LookupCode, Onboarding 1.0 finds the lookupName and saves the value in the data dictionary field, which will be prepopulated in the panel.
