/map

Associates a primary key with a user's social identity.

Note. The mapping API enables sites to store each of the user's external identifiers along with the primary key of the site's user/account record on the Identity Cloud server. These values are then included on every call to auth_info where the social identifier has been previously mapped.

See the Account Mapping overview topic to learn more.
