PLEASE NOTE: This is a sample scenario. If you would like more information about the available functions to meet specific business requirements, kindly review KBA 2747676.


A rule needs to be created as  this is not possible via Direct Mapping. Selecting just supervisor or manager in the target field in direct mapping will give you the user id of the employee. Creating following business rule will help to display the name in documents.

Here, display name in personal information is used, any field in personal info portlet which displays name can be selected in the rule.



Add above rule under Manage Document Template Mapping page via:

Admin Center > Manage Document Template Mapping > Choose the respective template > Select "rule " as "Mapping Type" for Manager Placeholder > Add the rule
