Load additional LDAP attributes

Jump to solution

is there a way to load additional attribute for a computer-ressource?

i found this article

Load additional LDAP attributes

but if i use the Example with a computer attribute. in the ARM Configuration  - Active Directory it will show the Attribute in the "Users - Tab" and not the "Computers -Tab"

how i can change this?

ARM by default assumes that an attribute will be loaded for users (which is the common case).

To make an attribute available for other classes than User, add the following to each desired attribute:

<ApplicableObjectClasses type="System.String">User,Computer,Group</ApplicableObjectClasses>

Note: you have to insert every class you want this attribute to be available. If a class is not added, the attribute won't show up for them.

Example:

<changeConfiguration>
    <activeDirectory>
        <PropertiesToLoad type="System.String">extensionattribute8</PropertiesToLoad>
        <PropertiesDetails>
            <extensionattribute8>
                <AliasDisplayName type="System.String">Area of expertise</AliasDisplayName>
                <ApplicableObjectClasses type="System.String">User,Group</ApplicableObjectClasses>
            </extensionattribute8>
        </PropertiesDetails>
    </activeDirectory>
</changeConfiguration>

This would make the extensionattribute8 available for users and groups.
