Change template for auto-generating user full name

By default, during user account creation, the Full Name property value is generated in the First Name Last Name format. To change the format, modify the built-in User property pattern.

  1. Launch Adaxes Administration console.

     How { #collapse1}
    • On the computer where Adaxes Administration console is installed, open Windows Start menu.

    • Click Adaxes Administration Console.

  2. Expand Adaxes service \ Configuration \ Property Patterns \ Builtin and select User.

  3. In the pane on the right, right-click the Full Name property and then click Edit in the context menu.

  4. In the Generate default value field, specify the required template.

    To generate property values based on values of other properties, use value references (e.g. %username%). When creating or modifying an object, value references are replaced with corresponding property values of the object.

    Example 1

    %lastname%, %firstname%

    If the user's first name is James and the last name is Bond, the full name will be Bond, James.

    Example 2

    %lastname:upper%, %firstname%

    In this example, the last name will be all uppercase, e.g. BOND, James.

    When done, click OK.

  5. Optionally, modify the template for the Display Name property.

  6. Click Save changes.
