Hello,

Could you post here the lines you added to the file?

To what location did you save the file?

Did you update the AttributeFriendlyNames2.eng.xml file on each computer where Adaxes service, Administration Console or Web Interface is installed?

1.) We added this to the very bottom of the AttributeFriendlyName2.eng.xml

<friendlyNameItem>
<ldapName>adm-CustomAttributeBoolean1</ldapName>
<friendlyName>Remote User has Business Class</friendlyName>
</friendlyNameItem>
<friendlyNameItem>
<ldapName>adm-CustomAttributeDate1</ldapName>
<friendlyName>Hire Date</friendlyName>
</friendlyNameItem>

2.) Filepath it was saved to was C:\ProgramData\Softerra\Adaxes 3\
3.) We installed everything on one server and we booted that server after updating the file.

Hello,

Do we understand correctly that the bottom of your AttributeFriendlyNames2.eng.xml file looks as following:

</friendlyNames>
  <friendlyNameItem>
    <ldapName>adm-CustomAttributeBoolean1</ldapName>
    <friendlyName>Remote User has Business Class</friendlyName>
  </friendlyNameItem>
  <friendlyNameItem>
    <ldapName>adm-CustomAttributeDate1</ldapName>
    <friendlyName>Hire Date</friendlyName>
  </friendlyNameItem>

If that is correct, you need to move the closing friendlyNames tag to the very bottom:

  <friendlyNameItem>
    <ldapName>adm-CustomAttributeBoolean1</ldapName>
    <friendlyName>Remote User has Business Class</friendlyName>
  </friendlyNameItem>
  <friendlyNameItem>
    <ldapName>adm-CustomAttributeDate1</ldapName>
    <friendlyName>Hire Date</friendlyName>
  </friendlyNameItem>
</friendlyNames>
