Add Active Directory Attributes to the Schema Map

The following video and page will cover how to add additional attributes from Active Directory that are not included by default.

Attributes Collection Editor

The Attributes Collection Editor contains all the Active Directory Attributes that the connection will return. The connection includes a default set of properties and you can extend this list with other available Active Directory Attributes.

Add an Attribute

You can add attributes to your schema by going to the connection properties window and finding Attributes. Click onto the ellipsis (...) to open the attribute collection manager.


Once the property collection window is open click Add to add a new attribute. Once you have completed all the fields click OK to save the attribute.
