Preferred name to be displayed in Jabber while searching users in Jabber

Users are searched in Jabber bu using surname and given name.

But I would like to search the users by using the preferred name.

How do I do that?

Depends on the configuration.

Depends on the configuration. Directory attributes mapping can be changed using jabber-config.xml file.

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/jabber/11_0/CJAB_BK_C1247C0B_00_cisco-jabber-parameters-reference-guide/CJAB_BK_C1247C0B_00_cisco-jabber-parameters-reference-guide_chapter_01001.html#CJAB_RF_AE445EC6_00

As an example (not to be used directly in production), in below jabber-config.xml file "sAMAccountName" is used to show lastname and can be searched (instead of the default LDAP Attribute "sn").

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<config version="1.0">
<Directory>
<Lastname>sAMAccountName</Lastname>
</Directory>
</config>

Thank You Hasan

Thank You Hasan

Here I see display name and nick name  as LDAP attributes.

Can I map those attributes as preferred name for searching the users in LDAP?

Any valid LDAP attributes

Any valid LDAP attributes will work as mapping in jabber-config.xml and thus for searching.

Note: Sometimes if the LDAP Port is set to 3268 it may not return all the LDAP attribute due to not replicatiing LDAP Attribute to GC (Port 3268). LDAP Port 389 always returns all the LDAP Attribute.

Replicating LDAP attribute to GC: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/248717
