Using the Alternate Job Title (when it is available)

To use the Alternate Job Title field in Connect to AD, we simply need to change the Job Title mapping from the default

Job.LongTitle

to

Employment.AlternateJobTitle

This expression will populate the Active Directory title attribute with the value from the UKG Alternate Job Title field.

To make this more efficient, we can make the Job Title mapping conditional, so as to first check if there is a Alternate Job Title value. 

To do this, click on the Conditional Expressions button and add the conditions

WHEN
String.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(Employment.AlternateJobTitle)

THEN
Job.LongTitle

and

WHEN
Default

THEN
Employment.AlternateJobTitle

This conditional expression will first check if there is a value for Alternate Job Title. If there isn't a Alternate Job Title value, it will fall back to using the Long Job Title field.
