Custom Attributes

You can create mappings that reference custom attributes in Active Directory.

  1. To add a new mapping that references a custom attribute, select add a new mapping.
  2. Switch from a standard attribute field to a custom attribute field. 

The Name value can be set to an easily identifiable name.

For example, if you are adding a mapping for the custom attribute myCustomAttribute, then you may want to use the name My Custom Attribute, which is what will be displayed in the field mappings list.

The Attribute value is taken directly from the attribute definition in Active Directory.

The custom attribute value can be found by viewing attributes in the Active Directory Users and Computers app.

Find the custom attribute using the Attribute Editor Tab (only available with Advanced Features switched on), and then double-click the custom attribute to open the attribute editor.

Use the Attribute value that is shown in the editor. 

The Type is taken directly from the attribute definition in Active Directory.

The custom attribute type can be found by viewing attributes in the Active Directory Users and Computers app.

Find the custom attribute using the Attribute Editor Tab (only available with Advanced Features switched on), and then double-click the custom attribute to open the attribute editor.

Use the Attribute type that is shown in the editor.

The following custom attribute types are supported:

  • Unicode String (Custom attribute type is String)
  • Boolean
  • UTC Coded Time (Custom attribute type is DateTime)
  • Integer
  • Large Integer

If the custom attribute is of type String and it allows multiple values, then select the Multi-Valued option.

Only string multi-value attributes are supported.
