public class PropertyMap

Only a one-on-one relationship is allowed. If there is an attempt to map more than one user profile property to one Active Directory property, or map one user profile property to more than one Active Directory property, an UPDuplicateEntryException is thrown.

The following code example shows the use of the PropertyMap class.

static public void PropertyTypeAndMappingSample()
{
 
  using (SPSite site = new SPSite("site url"))
  {
    SPServiceContext context = SPServiceContext.GetContext(site);
//Initialize user profile config manager object.
    UserProfileConfigManager upcm = new UserProfileConfigManager(context);
    ConnectionManager cm = upcm.ConnectionManager;
 
//Sample to get a property type.
    PropertyDataTypeCollection pdtc = upcm.GetPropertyDataTypes();
    PropertyDataType ptype = null;
 
    foreach (PropertyDataType datatype in pdtc)
    {
      if (datatype.Name.Equals("string"))
      {
        ptype = datatype;
        break;
      }
    }
 
//Sample to create a new custom property.
    ProfilePropertyManager ppm = upcm.ProfilePropertyManager;
    CorePropertyManager cpm = ppm.GetCoreProperties();
    ProfileTypePropertyManager ptpm = ppm.GetProfileTypeProperties(ProfileType.User);
    ProfileSubtypeManager psm = ProfileSubtypeManager.Get(context);
    ProfileSubtype ps = psm.GetProfileSubtype(ProfileSubtypeManager.GetDefaultProfileName(ProfileType.User));
    ProfileSubtypePropertyManager pspm = ps.Properties;
 
    CoreProperty coreProp = cpm.Create(false);
    coreProp.Name = "division";
    coreProp.DisplayName = "my custom division";
    coreProp.Type = ptype.Name;
    coreProp.Length = ptype.MaxCharCount;
    coreProp.Commit();
    ProfileTypeProperty profileTypeProp = ptpm.Create(coreProp);
    profileTypeProp.IsVisibleOnEditor = true;
    profileTypeProp.IsVisibleOnViewer = true;
    profileTypeProp.Commit();
    ProfileSubtypeProperty profileSubTypeProp = pspm.Create(profileTypeProp);
    profileSubTypeProp.DefaultPrivacy = Privacy.Private;
    profileSubTypeProp.IsUserEditable = true;
    profileSubTypeProp.Commit();
    pspm.SetDisplayOrderByPropertyName(profileSubTypeProp.Name, 1);
    pspm.CommitDisplayOrder();
 
//Edit property sample.
    CoreProperty ptitle = cpm.GetPropertyByName(PropertyConstants.Title);
// Or get property by URI.
    ptitle = cpm.GetPropertyByURI(Property.URI_Title);
    ptitle.DisplayName = "Designation";
    ptitle.Commit();
//Property map sample.
    string connectionName = "Test Connection";
    Connection connection = cm[connectionName];
    PropertyMapCollection pmc = connection.PropertyMapping;
    pmc.AddNewMapping(ProfileType.User, profileSubTypeProp.Name, "division");
 
//Remove property sample.
    cpm.RemovePropertyByName("division");
    ptpm.RemovePropertyByName("division");
    pspm.RemovePropertyByName("division");
  }
}
