Methodology: Generate a new attribute but only for new accounts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there.
    I hope this is just a simply question that I've simply not thought about correctly.

    I'm planning to setup a PS MA that will create homedirs and update AD accounts with the correct path.
    The homedir is new and nothing will be moved into it, only new users will use it. What sort of methods are best to have the new MA only work for new accounts?

    Before with other attributes they have been simply imported first and then a exported or generated if not present, I'm just a little unsure how to go about this with something as active and static as homedirs.
    :) Jon.

  • 1. Codeless:There are 2 types of mappings; Initial Flow and persistent flow.

    -- Initial Flow, means only when user is new in AD (Seems like that is what you want)

    -- Peristent flow, all the time.  If the data is static, this works also fine because it simply means that source and target are the same so nothing to update.

    2. Classical Rules

    You have the same 2 options.

    -- During provisioning, in the MVExtension.dll

    -- Export Flow Mapping

    Either method is simple enough. Choice is yours.

  • Thanks for your reply. I forgot to mention that I do want the attributes to be persistent as the dir name will be based off the login (standard) which does change from time to time.

    Jon.

    EDIT: I think I'll have to do it in the provisioning and RE code. Just wanted to make sure there's no options to do it using sets/filters in the portal. :)

  • Then you got the answer. Simply create export flow mappings.
