  • hi Bahloul,

    just to clarify, by domain you mean active directory domain , is that correct?

    assuming YES so your issue is that you are not able to query usr account object attributes from like using LDAP from the other domain?

    would you confirm and shed some light on the exact scenario so that we can answer you ASAP



    Thanks Mahmoud

  • Hello Mahmoud,

    it is not a query it's updating  users attributes the attribute is Manager it's shown below :-

    i need to add the manager from another domain which is already trusted ( forest wide trust two way ).

  • hi Bahloul,

    Thanks for your reply. if it's updating the attribute then it means the user account used should have "write" permission on that user object even on the other forest in case there is trust already in place.

    can you try to manually update user attribute from target forest "manually" using same user account and see if you get access denied or another error?

    that would be first step because if you verify it's successful when done manually then we can check from the ticketing system .

    hope this suggestion helps and kindly mark it as helpful if it helps

    Thanks Mahmoud
