A Forum reader recently asked:
I'm trying to migrate users from AD to the eDirectory ID Vault. I'd like to use AD Attrib's First Name + Last Name to create the Full Name on the eDirectory side. I can't get this to work - where should I place this in the creation policy?
And here's the reply from Father Ramon ...
Make sure Full Name is not set to synchronize in the filter. Add the following rule in the Subscriber Creation policy:
<description>Generate Full Name</description>
<if-class-name mode="nocase" op="equal">User</if-class-name>
<do-set-default-attr-value name="Full Name" write-back="false">
<token-attr name="Given Name"/>
<token-text xml:space="preserve"> </token-text>
