I would like to set the Hire Date of a user to the CustomAttributeDate2. Using your script to create users from a csv file. I have tried "Hire Date" = "%CustomAttributeDate2%" and this fails. image.png image.png

So obviously, these customColumnNames can only be put in Active Directory. Is there a way for me to get that data into the customAttribute in adaxes? Add something to the script.

As far as we understand you are referring to the following script in our repository: https://www.adaxes.com/script-repository/import-new-and-updated-users-from-csv-file-s246.htm. If so, yes, it is possible to import values to Adaxes custom attributes. To do so, you need to map the name of the required column to the LDAP name of the custom attribute (e.g. adm-CustomAttributeDate2) in the $customColumnsNames variable. In your case the issue occurs because you specified the value reference to the custom attribute, but not the attribute LDAP name. The mapping should look like this:

"HireDate" = "adm-CustomAttributeDate2";

I see, thanks for the info. This is working properly now.

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.

Using this built in function: There is no option to change the domain on the user account, however this is not the domain we use for UPN. However after creating a user, you can change it but trying to avoid going back into the object.
