Hello,

I am trying to set up Adaxes to use a number of custom AD Attributes. Our use case requires attributes such as "Branch", "Community", Transit #", etc. Our project manager has decided that these attribute values need to be stored in existing LDAP fields such as ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-3.

I can add the extension attribute information to my AD Account, and the Web Interface, but it shows up as the LDAP name. I'd like to have, for example, "Team" display on the webpage, and pull the info from ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-3 in LDAP. Currently, ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-3 displays on the webpage, with the correct info.

I've added the below to AttributeFriendlyNames2.eng.xml, but this did not allow me to select "Team" in the Web Interface Customization.

<friendlyNameItem>
<ldapName>ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-3</ldapName>
<friendlyName>Team</friendlyName>
</friendlyNameItem>

I can attach screenshots if this is not clear enough.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

Dan

Hello Den,

Enable the Show all properties option in the Add Field dialog.


You can also click Add Extra and type the LDAP name of an attribute (e.g. extensionAttribute3)

Did you restart the Web Interface Customization tool? Are there any warnings shown on startup?

Hi Eugene,

That worked, after I figured out something else. In the code in AttributeFriendlyNames2.eng.xml, I had:

<friendlyNameItem>
<ldapName>ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-3</ldapName>
<friendlyName>Team</friendlyName>
</friendlyNameItem>

However, the actual LDAP name of "ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-3" is "extensionAttribute3". When I changed the code to:

<friendlyNameItem>
<ldapName>extensionAttribute3</ldapName>
<friendlyName>Team</friendlyName>
</friendlyNameItem> 

I was able to find the Friendly name in the Web Interface customization, and it added properly.

Thanks for your help!

Dan

ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-3 is the display name defined for the property in the AD schema.

I am evaluating Adaxes. I noticed that the web interface does not allow modification of the External Email Address (ms-Exch-Target-Address). What would someone do if they needed to change the Target Address?

If you use the Adaxes admin tool to rename an OU, does that also update the corresponding OU information that is referenced in any policies that you have in the Adaxes Administration console. Minus and powershell/vb scripts - I assume those wouldn't updated.
