If Twitter is specified as the the external identity provider, a subset of Twitter provider attributes can be used as the mapping attribute placeholder value.

The placeholder value must use the following syntax:

${providerAttributes.<Twitter attribute name>}

When you create a new Twitter identity provider entity, the POST request automatically maps the PingOne username attribute to the Twitter id attribute. The username attribute is the core mapping attribute; the default Twitter attribute value is id. It is also recommended that you map the PingOne email attribute to the Twitter email attribute.

The request body for the email-to-email mapping looks like this, with the value attribute showing the Twitter email attribute expressed using the placeholder syntax:

    "name": "email",
    "update": "EMPTY_ONLY",
    "value": "${providerAttributes.email}"

The POST /environments/{environmentId}/identityProviders operation adds a new identity provider resource to the specified environment.

When the type property value is set to TWITTER, Twitter’s clientId and clientSecret property values are required in the request body.
