The best tutorial I am aware of for customizing the person object is this one:

It is for version 3.4, but I don't believe the process is significantly
different in 4.x (I haven't personally tried).

Good luck,

Thanks again. With regard to the users I'm planning to script adding them via the REST API. I can easily POST a new person object based on the fields pulled from Jive, but we also need to customize the person model with some additional fields/aspects (like Alternate Phone # for example). How can I add aspects/metadata to a person object via the existing API? If I can't is there a way to use WebScripts to create my own REST call or extend the default one?
