A Forum reader recently asked:
"How can we populate the AD home directory field using IDM? Is it even possible?"
And here's the response from Tim Edmonds ...
Set the AD Attributes as below:
- homeDrive - Drive to which Home Directory will be mapped
- homeDirectory - URL of Home Directory, including the user portion
Here's some sample XML that uses a GCV to set the specifics of the homeDirectory. It also uses CN for a directory name (sorry if it word-wraps and gets a bit confusing ...)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE policy PUBLIC
<description>Create Home Directory</description>
<comment xml:space="preserve">Create the Home Directory for the user
<if-op-attr name="CN" op="available"/>
<do-set-dest-attr-value class-name="User" name="homeDrive">
<do-set-dest-attr-value class-name="User" name="homeDirectory">
