This article will outline our CatalystOne integration for user provisioning.

Connecting Eletive to CatalystOne will allow for automatic provisioning of your employee data.

Data Mapping

Standard Fields

The standard fields when synching users between CatalystOne and Eletive are shown in the table below and these will be synced automatically. The language will be set to English by default when the user is created. After that, the language can be changed within Eletive without being overwritten. 

Field - Eletive Field - CatalystOne
First name First Name
Last name Last Name
Email E-mail
External Id Internal ID


Note: Please note that all standard fields, First Name, Last Name and  Internal ID are mandatory to make the user syncable. Users without First Name, Last Name or Internal ID in CatalystOne will NOT be synced


To sync attributes, first, create the proper attributes in Eletive, and then connect with CatalystOne and perform the attribute mapping. Other fields in CatalystOne that can be interesting to include can be Job role, Job location, Date of Birth, etc. If needed, you can read more about adding attributes and the different types of attributes in Eletive here

To build the organizational structure in Eletive, our automatic hierarchies feature can be used. CatalystOne contains a field called "Manager", this can be mapped to a User type attribute in Eletive to get the organization hierarchy, as the manager field in CatalystOne contains an unique ID.  

Example mappings:

Attribute - Eletive Field - CatalsytOne
Manager (Needs to be created) Manager
Date of Birth (Standard Attribute) Birth Date
Employment Date (Standard Attribute) Hire Date
Gender (Standard Attribute) Gender



After the proper attributes have been created in Eletive, proceed with this guide.


In order to synch users between the platforms an API client needs to be created in CatalystOne. Please reach out to your CatalystOne contact to have this created on your behalf. When doing this you'll also have to specify: 

  • which fields from CatalystOne you wish to expose to Eletive.
  • filter criteria on which users that are going to be synched to Eletive.
    • By default Eletive will synch users with Employment Status "Employed",  additionally there's an opportunity to select users based on which Organization they belong to. If you prefer additional filter criteria these needs to be specified to your CatalystOne contact. 

Disclaimer: Eletive will not cover any additional costs that may arise from your HRIS vendor enabling an integration.
