Depending on license codes that are activated or permissions that are granted, select from Setup>Configuration>Reservations>Scheduled Activities>UDF Mapping or from Setup>System Configuration>Channels>UDF Mapping to open the UDF Mappings screen. The UDF Mappings screen is used to map user defined fields in OPERA to equivalent tags in HTNG or OWS web service messages.
Note: For the UDF Mappings screen to be available from the Reservation>Scheduled Activities menu, an activities vendor license must be activated, such as an HTNG or Concept license.
In HTNG 2008B message specifications, the UDF Mappings screen can be used to map user defined fields in the Reservation and Profile modules to UDF tags in the HTNG reservation and profile web service messages. Consider the following scenario:
The HTNG tag UDFC01 is available for mapping to a UDF field on the Profile screen, and a user screen paints a new field on the Profile screen with the label "Emergency Contact." Using the UDF Mappings screen, Emergency Contact can be mapped to UDFC01. When activities are updated for a profile, HTNG will send a response message to OPERA that will update the UDFC01 field, which appears on the Profile screen as "Emergency Contact." UDFC01 will then be populated in OPERA with a new value when the HTNG message response is returned.
