Couple of things.

1) if you change the userID for something else in AD, you'll lose ALL your users.

2) You can't create any random field they like and use it as userID, we only provide some options for it

LDAP Attribute for User ID

If synchronization with the LDAP server is enabled, you can choose an  LDAP attribute value for the user ID. Choose one of the following values  from the drop-down list box:

For Microsoft Active Directory






If they still want to do this they'll need to use one of the above fields and be willing to lose the current users configuration as they will be deleted.

You'll need to delete the whole LDAP integration and recreate it to use another userID.
