To eliminate the feature gap for syncing LMS license type using user-connector and introduce better user experience.


Introducing a standard element, named "Learning License User Type” to represent the LMS license so that the end users can upload the license through Employee Import/ Basic Import, and sync the license with LMS using user connector.

Steps to configure :

  1. Configure the Succession data model ( standard element named "Learning License User Type” ) in provisioning as shown in screenshot below: 

  2. Export the Basic Import/Employee Import template to get latest Succession data model configuration

  3. Fill in the LMS license value in the file and upload the file.
    • When you import Learning license types, the supported values are "active" and "functional" and their variations. If you enter values other than the 6 listed below, they won't be saved and (string beyond allowable values of below 6 cases, and empty) will NOT correct/ change the existing values (we will revert back to old value if the newly imported value is invalid) Note: Invalid entries will not cause import to fail.
      • ACTIVE, Active, and active
      • FUNCTIONAL, Functional, and functional

  4. After import is successful, the license type field can be used in LMS user connector (Employee Export) to sync it in Learning System.

  5. According to the current Employee Import logic, If you input the  invalid values and import (string beyond allowable values of above 6 cases, and empty) will not be updated and will get change the existing values  (It will be reverted  back to old value if the newly imported value is invalid) or blank.
