Custom User Fields
Article: KB0010629 Published: 02/20/2019 Last modified: 02/18/2020

The user object in OneLogin contains all the fields necessary to perform the basic identity management tasks, but sometimes you want to store more information about users. For example, if you synchronize users from Active Directory you might want to pull in additional fields that you want to pass on other applications via SAML.

Important! This feature requires the OneLogin Unlimited plan. Please see OneLogin Pricing to confirm if your plan supports Custom User Fields.

Managing custom user fields

To view a custom user field, go to Users > Custom User Fields. To create a new custom user field, click New User Field on the same page.

You can create as many fields as you want and use drag-and-drop to rearrange the order. The order in this list is also reflected on the edit user page.

The Name will be used as the text label in the user interface and the Shortname is used when you access custom user fields via the API. You can only create text fields, but they can contain any kind of data.

Editing users

Once you have created custom user fields they appear nicely on the edit user page right below the personal information fields.

Using custom user fields

You can use custom user fields in a number of ways. For example, if you are synchronizing users from Active Directory, you can map fields in Active Directory to standard and custom user fields in OneLogin.

You can also use custom user fields as default values on apps.
