Modifying Naming Attributes

    The format for the users' Name, Display Name, Logon Name and SAM Account Name can be modified here.


    You must first select the format in which you want to list the user's Display Name, Full Name, Logon Name and SAM Account Name. Then apply the format to the list of contacts which can be imported using CSV File.


    1. Select the AD Mgmt tab.

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

    3. Select the name format from the given options. You can also create your own Format . Click here to know more

    1. You can now use one of the following options to list the users 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.

    Roll over the mouse over the icon to see the attributes in the windows native UI.


    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.
