Field Mappings

1.1 General Field Mappings

Following are the Galaxy fields mapped with IXM WEB.

Galaxy FieldIXM FieldNotes
Common IDUser IDGalaxy allows alphanumeric & special characters in Common ID while IXM WEB allows only alphanumeric in User ID. Hence, IXM LINK will sync only those users whose Common ID value is compatible with IXM WEB. Also Common ID is not mandatory in Galaxy, and User ID in IXM WEB is mandatory; hence if it is blank, users won’t be imported from Galaxy to IXM WEB
First NameFirst Name 
Last NameLast Name 
PhoneMobile Phone 
DepartmentDepartmentDepartment of user in Galaxy will be imported in IXM WEB. And, department selected from IXM WEB will be exported to Galaxy. However, no new department would be created while exporting user from IXM WEB to Galaxy.

D.O.B. (Personal Tab)Birth Date 
Inactive (Personal Tab)Suspend UserGalaxy doesn’t allow actually deleting users while using through IXM LINK, so records deleted in IXM WEB are flagged inactive in Galaxy.
PIN (Card/Badge Settings – Card1 Tab)PINPIN in IXM WEB can range from 4 to 10 digits; while in Galaxy PIN can range from 0 to 65535.Hence, PIN will be exported to Galaxy if it lies in range of 0 to 65535 but only those PIN will work with IXM Device whose range is between 4 to 10 digits.
