AD Import using Custom Attributes?

Answered Question


by default when you run AD import in UC, it fetched whole AD domain accounts which contains service accounts and a lot other stuff which one don't want to import.

So choice is to search using a particular Base DN which query only one OU.

But this simple query is not adequate in a organization which has a very complex and large OUs structure, users which needs to be UC enabled are distributed among many separate OUs.

Is there some kind of filters or other method during AD import which can query users from AD based on security group membership or CustomAttributes. The best approach will be CustomAttributes based query, because we already published CustomAttribute15 with values "STAFF","Faculty" and "Students".

The whole purpose which we want to achieve is to exclude STUDENTS category in AD import. Help me friends to achieve this task.

Hi


You can edit the LDAP filer used by CCM; with that you could filter on your custom attributes. See this post for a discussion of a similar modification; it's just a matter of putting together a new LDAP filter string to return the results you want.
