  • What do you mean "implementing creating a unique naming attribute"? If This means that you want to implement a rule which will generate unique naming attribute for a user upon projection the answer depends on your setup an approach.

    Are You using only synchronization service or FIM Service as well? If You are using FIM Service I would advise you to use FIM workflow capabilities and create a workflow which will be triggered upon user creation in FIM (and subsequent changes in some attributes if needed) to generate unique value of such attribute. 

    If You are using only synchronization engine you should use import rule extension to generate and flow attribute into metaverse. Detailed approach how to generate this value depends on your requirements. 

    Third option is to generate this unique value in the outside system like SQL and then just flow into metaverse to populate it on user attributes.
