The script updates attributes based on the value of another attribute. In the example below, attributes City (LDAP name title) and State (LDAP name st) are updated based on the value of the Department Number attribute (LDAP name departmentNumber).

Parameter:

  • $basePropertyName - Specifies the LDAP name of the property whose values will be used as base for the update.
  • $valueMap - Maps values of the property specified in the $basePropertyName variable with the properties to be updated and their values.

$basePropertyName = "departmentNumber" # TODO: modify me
$valueMap = @{
    "01234" = @{
        "l" = "City1";
        "st" = "State1";
    };
    "57890" = @{
        "l" = "City2";
        "st" = "State2"
    };
} # TODO: modify me. Example @{<base property value> = <Property map>}. 
# $valueMap = @{"0001" = @{"l" = "City"; "department" = "Dep1"; "st" = "State"}}

# Get base property value
try
{
    $baseValue = $Context.TargetObject.Get($basePropertyName)
}
catch
{
    return # Value not specified
}

# Update properties
$propertyMap = $valueMap[$baseValue]
if ([System.String]::IsNullOrEmpty($propertyMap))
{
    $Context.LogMessage("Properties to update not specified for '$baseValue' value", "Warning")
    return
}

$user = $Context.BindToObjectEx($Context.TargetObject.AdsPath , $True)
foreach ($item in $propertyMap.GetEnumerator())
{
    $user.Put($item.Key, $item.Value)
}

# Save changes
try
{
    $user.SetInfo()
}
catch
{
    $Context.LogMessage("An error occurred when updating user. Error: " + $_.Exception.Message, "Warning")
}
