The Genea Access Control App within Okta does not currently map custom attributes out of the box, though you can easily add these attributes by following the simple steps below. 

Apart from standard User profile attributes, Genea supports Department, Employee Number and Cost Center. You can view these attributes within each User profile, as well as within your Activity Logs. You can also sort and export data based upon these attributes. 

Step 1. Navigate to the 'Provisioning' tab in your Genea Access Control app within your Okta Admin dashboard and click on "Go to Profile Editor."

Step 2. Click 'Add Attribute' and enter the attributes below for the custom field. Click 'Save.'
External namespace :  urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:enterprise:2.0:User

You may also add 'Employee Number' and 'Cost Center,' as shown in the following screenshots. 


Employee Number

Step 3. Once the attributes have been created, it's time for mapping. Click on 'Mappings.'

Step 4. Click on the 'Okta to Genea Access Control' tab and map the attributes you've just created, as shown in the screenshot below, then click 'Save.' 

Once the new mappings have been created, Okta can push all user profile updates as soon as the new mapping are saved, or you can choose not to do push the profile updates. If you choose to 'Apply Updates Now,' all users profiles within Genea will be updated so please choose this option carefully. 

Once the mapping is applied to all user profiles within Genea, you can view, search and export data based on the attributes within your Genea admin dashboard.
