When we create a shared mailbox, we create an associated mail-enabled security group. In the security group I want to populate the description field with the name of the shared mailbox.
In my group pattern specific to an OU that contains mail-enabled security groups, I have added description with a default value of "For access to shared mailbox "%assistant%".
In the web interface I have an action called "Create New Mail-Enabled Security Group and using attribute "assistant" to search for the shared mailbox user and populating the assistant attribute. This works fine but the reference value is pulling the full DN of the shared mailbox user.
How can I get just the "name" of the shared mailbox versus the full DN?
