attribute in Schema

    Question

  • Hi,

    We have business need where some users like to use different name in addtion to their original name.

    Their official name is completed using attibute like First Name, Middle Name and Surname.

    To add different name, i like to propose use of extensionattibute10,extensionattibute11,extensionattibute12.

    Any application use the above attibutes? Is it safe to use?

    thanks.

  • There are many attributes of user objects in AD that don't seem to be used. Perhaps you can consider:

    msDS-Phonetic-Display-Name, msDS-Phonetic-First-Name, and msDS-Phonetic-Last-Name

    There are others you can see in the "Attribute Editor" tab of ADUC.

  • Ideally those attribute are not used by any other application unless you specifically define.By the way why you are not creating some other custom attributes?
