Configuring Custom LDAP Attributes
ADManager Plus allows you to add your own LDAP attributes without affecting your Active Directory's Schema. To add an attribute,
- Log in to ADManager Plus and navigate to the Admin tab.
- In the left pane, under Custom Settings, click LDAP Attributes.
- Click + Add Attribute button present on the top-right corner and specify the following:
- LDAP Name: Specify the LDAP name for the attribute.
- Display Name: Enter a name for the attribute in the Display Name field.
- Data Type: Specify the data type.
- Associated Reports: Check in the associated reports for the attribute, i.e. if you have added a LDAP attribute for user, check in the User option.
- Associated Management: Select the associated management actions for the attribute from the drop-down list.
You can also import custom LDAP attributes from your Active Directory. To do this,
- Click the Choose button next to the LDAP Name field.
- Select the attributes of your choice and click OK.
- Alternatively, you can search and choose attributes from the suggestions displayed in the LDAP Name field.
- The Data Type field is auto-populated from AD along with the LDAP Name.
- Click the icon in the Select Attributes window to sync the custom attributes from your Active Directory, whenever,
- A new domain from your AD is added to ADManager Plus.
- A new attribute is created in the domains configured in ADManager Plus.
- Deleting a domain from ADManager Plus will delete the custom LDAP attributes obtained from that domain. However, this does not apply to the LDAP attributes configured in ADManager Plus.
- Once done, click Add.
- Unicode string: Select this data type if your customized attribute stores only text.
- Integer: Select this data type if your customized attribute stores only numerical (integer) value within limits.
- Boolean: Select this data type if your customized attribute takes either a TRUE or FALSE value.
- Large Integer: Select this data type if your customized attribute stores very large numbers.
- DateTime: Select this data type if your customized attribute stores date and time value.
- Multivalue: Select this data type if your customized attribute stores none, one or many values.
- UTC Coded Time: Select this data type if your customized attribute stores values in Coordinated Universal Time.
|UTC Coded Time
Note: The customized attribute in ADManager Plus must have the same datatype as in Active Directory. If you're using special characters in the LDAP name of a custom attribute, ensure that the total length of the name does not exceed 62 bytes.
