Hello, I want to use custom attributes to display values that would be updated via script, but I want a name my users can understand, so rename "CustomAttributeBinary1" to a more friendly name.

I've searched, but I keep seeing references to this article http://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.Mana ... Names.html . After looking at that article, it tells me to modify the file AttributeFriendlyNames2.eng.xml but I cannot find this file on my server anywhere.

How can I do this?

Thanks.

Found it, I had to turn on view system files in Server 2012 R2 before it showed. You should update that document to include server locations.

Hello,

You could simply copy and paste the path to the Windows Explorer Address bar. It's the same as for Windows 8.

Anyway, thanks for the note, that's a good point. We'll update the document.

I am wanting to export a list of users including the properties of a specific custom attribute. Ideally, I would be able to run a get-admuser and filter on a custom attribute, but even an excel report with the custom attributes would work. Is this possible?
