  • customer data will not be mapped from social profiles

Display options

Attribute display name: The name of the input field displayed for customers.
Make the attribute mandatory: Choose whether to make this attribute mandatory or not. If made mandatory, a customer has to enter a value at self-service registration or the next login.

Show attribute in My Account: Choose whether to show this attribute in a customer's self-service account or an admin user's My Account portal.
