Field Mappings

Following are the AI fields mapped with IXM WEB.

RS2 FieldIXM FieldNotes
Last nameLast name 
First nameFirst name 
Cardholder StatusSuspend UserIXM WEB has two values ACTIVE and INACTIVE while AI has three statuses Inactive, Active, and Date based. Active of AI is mapped to INACTIVE, Inactive of AI is mapped to ACTIVE as Suspend User in IXM WEB. Date is mapped to Start Date & End Date of IXM WEB. Following are the details.
Cardholder status Date is Active (Cardholder status – Date based)Start DateAI doesn’t allow value less than 1/1/1970.
Cardholder status Date is Expire (Cardholder status – Date based)End DateAI doesn’t allow value greater than 31/12/2035.
Card numberProx ID 
Facility CodeFacility Code 
PIN NumberPINRS2 has PIN at card level which is mapped to PIN at user level since IXM WEB supports only one card per user. The rationale is that user remembers his PIN which can be used on Invixium devices for authentication. In RS2 default value for PIN Number is 0. If PIN Number is 0 then it is considered as empty in IXM WEB.
Card status“No equivalent”Prox ID, Facility Code, and PIN are set when Card status is not Inactive. For Inactive card status not transferred to IXM WEB.
Active (Card status – Date based) & Expire (Card status – Date based)“No equivalent”If active date is less than or equal to current date & expiry date is greater than and equal to current date then Prox ID, Facility Code, and PIN transferred to IXM WEB.

      • ➣ Sync data both ways. Link will update IXM WEB first and then RS2.
    • Auto Transfer:Link can send all users imported from RS2 to all registered Invixium devices. Other options include – (a) not sending any users automatically or (b) sending only users whose fingerprint(s) have enrolled.
    • Note: If you’ve created any User Group on any device then turn Auto Transfer off by setting it to None of the Users to Any Device.
