Customizing the Profiles data model

The Profiles application provides the social directory structure leveraged by all other HCL Connections applications. You can use a combination of standard properties and extension properties to customize the data in Profiles to meet the unique needs of your deployment.

Customizing profiles

Each person in Profiles is described by a set of properties that are grouped into a type definition. The type definition can include standard properties that are defined by default, or you can add extension properties defined by you to meet your organization's needs.

Note: Mapping from the LDAP directory (or other source) to the Profiles database can also be customized, as can mapping from the Profiles database to the user interface. For more information on mapping LDAP data to Profiles database fields, see Mapping fields manually.
