How can I make that happen without doing it through a custom command?

for instance, when creating a user, once you enter first, name etc, the full name, user logon name are being filled out the same time.
That's how I want it to be for the description and job title field.

Hello,

You can do this with the help of Adaxes Property Patterns.

Property Patterns define value constraints and generation templates for properties. To generate the Description of a new user based on the user's Job Title property, you need to modify the built-in User Pattern. By default, it defines value generation templates for all users. To do this:

  1. Launch Adaxes Administration Console.
  2. Expand the service node that represents your service.
  3. Locate and select the built-in User Pattern.
  4. Click Add at the top of the Result Pane (located to the right) and select Description.
  5. In the Generate default value field, type %title%.

    %title% is a value reference that will be substituted with the Job Title property of the user. For more details, see Value Reference Format.
  6. Save the Property Pattern.

Alternatively, you can create your own Property Pattern that will be used to generate the value for the Description property. For more details, see Creating Property Pattern.

Can this be done when modifying a user?

Yes, sure. To do this, when defining a template for generating a value fore a property, you need to switch the Generate value radio button to on creating and editing objects. In this case, the default value will be generated based on the template you specify not only when a new user is created, but also when an existing user is modified.

not sure if you answered this already, but I want to edit a property name so its modified when modifying users.
when I launched the property pattern for user pattern...I want to change the Office property to have an option when modifying.
How can I allow that? I currently do not see the option.

EDIT-- NEVERMIND.
I GOT IT.

Hello,

Sorry, we don't quite get the idea. Can you explain it in a bit more detail? Maybe a couple of screenshots would help?

disregard. I figured it out.
the default value field was empty on a property pattern, so I didn't see the option to generate value on editing objects. Once I entered something it came up.
