Modify Custom Attributes

    ADManager Plus allows you to add/ modify custom attributes that are present in Active Directory schema but not in ADManager Plus. You can use these attributes based on your requirement during user creation and modification.


    First, enter the LDAP name, value and Data type of the custom attribute to be modified and then apply the same to desired list of users.


    1. Select the AD Mgmt tab.

    2. Click the custom Attributes link available under General Attributes. This opens the Modify custom Attributes of the Users dialog.

    3. Enter the LDAP name and value,then select the data type from the given options.

    1. You can now use one of the following options to list the contacts whose group attributes have to be modified:

    a) You can import the CSV file (sample CSV file) which contains the list of users. After importing the CSV file, from the drop down menu (on the right hand side), select the attribute based on which you want ADManager Plus to search the user objects in Active Directory.


    b) Use the  Search option to find the user (Note: To list all the users, just click the Search button without typing anything in the Search box)

       5.  Now, use the check box to select the desired list of user (s) and then click Apply

    The change summary and the status of the modification can be verified.


    1. Changing the Name format will change the name of the existing user account with all the other properties unaltered.

    2. Changing the Logon name and SAM account name may cause duplication, if one by the same name exists.
