Data Mapping for Scheduled CSV Jobs

In this section, you will map data fields between the selected SaaS application’s available integration task fields in FSM Data Ingestion Utility and the column header fields in the input CSV file that was uploaded in Adding a New Scheduled CSV Job. After this task is successfully complete, your organization’s SaaS data is uploaded to Flexera’s SaaS Import Job API by Running a Scheduled CSV Job.

To map data fields for scheduled CSV jobs:

1. Go to the CSV Jobs page (CSV Jobs > CSV Jobs).
2. Go to the Jobs Scheduled tab.
3. Go to the appropriate Job ID table row.
4. In the Actions column, click Edit. The Edit Job dialog box opens with the prefilled job data saved from Adding a New Scheduled CSV Job.
5. Click the Data Mapping button, which opens the Data Mapping for Job dialog box. This dialog box also includes a Data Mapping table whose columns are described in the following table.

Column

Description

Application Name (Organization ID)

Displays the name of the selected SaaS application and associated Organization ID. The rows in this column are the fields from the integration task listed in the Task field.

Selected CSV Column

7. Complete the Selected CSV Column and the necessary Updated CSV File To column information. The following table lists the required integration task fields that must be mapped to the Selected CSV Column.

Important:When Name values appear in the Update CSV Column To column, the user’s name is automatically mapped to firstName, middleName, and lastName in FSM Data Ingestion Utility. No manual formatting is necessary. For example, the Name value dennis g abbas would be mapped as:

firstName is dennis 
middleName is g 
lastName is abbas.

Note:If any of the mandatory fields are not mapped, you will see an error message based on the selected integration task and the missing mandatory fields.
