Hello,

I want to show an extension attribute when searching for a user in the web interface. I tried to add it under browsing, but its still not there.

How can I modify the attributes that are shown in the results?

Thanks!

Hello,

Sorry for the confusion, but we are not sure what exactly you mean. Could you, please, post here or send us (support@adaxes.com) a screenshot of the Web interface where you want to add the property? Any additional details regarding the desired behavior will be much appreciated.

Hello,

Thank you for specifying. The form you are referencing is related to viewing a user account. It is the same when you search for a user or just browse to one. For information on how to modify Web interface forms, have a look at the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInterfaceCustomization_CustomizeFormsForUserCreationAndEditing.htm. In your case, you need to activate the View tab on step 5 of the guide and then add the extension attribute to the required section.

Hello,

I just want to add the extensionattribute12 that we renamed into "Einrichtungseinheit".

It is the issue that causes the error that prevents you from adding the property to the form. Fixing the issue will let you update the form.

But always the error appears.

For us to help you remedy the issue, please, provide us with the exact second screenshot we requested in the previous post. To take the screenshot:

  1. Open Adaxes Web interface configurator.
  2. In the top left corner, select the Web interface where the error occurs.
  3. In the left pane, click Management.
  4. In the Forms and Views section on the right, expand the drop-down menu with object types. image.png
  5. Take a screenshot and post it here. We need something like the following: image.png

Hello,

Thank you for the provided screenshot. Unfortunately, it still does not allow us to determine the root cause of the issue. For further troubleshooting, please, send us (support@adaxes.com) a backup of your Adaxes. Configuration. For details on how to make a backup, see https://www.adaxes.com/help/BackupRestoreConfiguration.

I can't make an Backup cause my installation of the software is missing this backup tool...

Hello,

Are you sure that you checked on the computer where Adaxes service is installed? Softerra Adaxes Service should be present in the list of Windows services. The tool should be located in the corresponding folder.

For your information, the Web interface component can be installed on a separate computer. In this case, the Service folder and the backup tool will not be present.

Where should I send this backup file to? Its around 60mb so I guess it cant be send over mail properly.

Hello,

Thank you for the confirmation. The email was sent to the email address from you Q&A profile.

Hello,

Thank you for the provided backup. The issue occurs because of duplicate object types in the drop-down list of the Forms and Views section. image.png To remedy the issue, execute the below script on the computer where Adaxes service is installed. When prompted, specify the credentials of the Adaxes service account (specified during the software installation). Once done, refresh the Web interface configurator page using Ctrl+F5.

[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi")

$credential = Get-Credential

# Connect to the Adaxes service
$admNS = New-Object "Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi.AdmNamespace"
$admService = $admNS.GetServiceDirectly("localhost")

# Bind to the 'WebUI Configuration' container
$webuiConfigPath = $admService.Backend.GetConfigurationContainerPath(
    "WebUIConfigurationContainer")
$webuiConfigContainer = $admService.OpenObject($webuiConfigPath,
     $credential.UserName, $credential.GetNetworkCredential().Password, 0)

$webUITypes = $webuiConfigContainer.GetWebUITypes()
foreach ($webUIType in $webUITypes)
{
    $ManagementFormsViewsSettings = $webUIType.ManagementFormsViewsSettings
    $ObjectTypes = $ManagementFormsViewsSettings.ObjectTypes

    $types = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.HashSet[System.String]"
    for ($i = $ObjectTypes.Count - 1; $i -ge 0; $i--)
    {
        $type = $ObjectTypes.GetItem($i)
        if (!$types.Add($type.ObjectType))
        {
            $ObjectTypes.Remove($i)
        }
    }

    $webUIType.ManagementFormsViewsSettings = $ManagementFormsViewsSettings
    $webUIType.SetInfo()
}

After running the script and refreshing the page, you should be able to add the attribute to the form.

Now it worked! Thank you.
