Hello, 


Is there a way to map company name to the organization name field for a user when importing from workday?


This is what I see in the workday connector guide

There doesn't be an attribute though to map directly to organization name in Saviynt

Hi Aundre,


The Organization Name that you see in the user profile is actualy mapped to a db field customer in the users table.

This customer field is of type BIGINT which references the customerkey in the customer table. 


There's isnt a direct mapping to the users table, unless you have the organization created in Saviynt and there pass the key at the time of creation/update of the user.


One of the possible ways I can think of is perhaps using the inline pre-processor and looking up the customer table and passing its key.


There could be other ways,better ways,  I'll let someone who has experience chime in.

So I see this page for the inline pre-processor User Import Preprocessor : Customer Portal (freshdesk.com), however the Workday connection type doesn't seem to have a modifyuserdatajson section. Is there another way to use the in line pre processor with this particular connection type?

Hi Aundre,


Is the workday connection type and inline pre-procesor still an open question for you ?

No this is good now. I see that you can use modifyuserdatajson if you modify the Workday connection type. Reference below for others.
