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

The placeholder value must use the following syntax:

${providerAttributes.<Yahoo attribute name>}

When you create a new Yahoo identity provider entity, the POST request automatically maps the PingOne username attribute to the Yahoo sub attribute. The username attribute is the core mapping attribute; the default Yahoo attribute value is sub. It is also recommended that you map the PingOne email attribute to the Yahoo 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 YAHOO, Yahoo’s clientId and clientSecret property values are required in the request body.
