This script description says it can find the manager via FullName Distinguished name or Display name. Wondering if we can change it to use employeeID or SamAccountName.

https://www.adaxes.com/script-repository/import-new-and-updated-users-from-csv-file-s246.htm This script from your repository. Yes I have modified it slightly but the section regarding the manager has not been changed and it can find the manager based on full name however what happens when I have two managers with the same name. So trying SamAccount or EmployeeID.

Hello,

Thank you for clarifying. yes, it is possible. You will need to update the value of the -Filter parameter in the following line of the script:

$aDObject = Get-AdmObject -Filter {(Name -eq $value) -or (DisplayName -eq $value) -or (distinguishedName -eq $value)} `
                -AdaxesService localhost -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -Server $domainName

For example, in case you want to use the Employee ID to find Managers, the line should be as follows:

$aDObject = Get-AdmObject -Filter {(employeeId -eq $value)} `
                -AdaxesService localhost -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -Server $domainName
