  • Custom Attributes w/Exchange

    In Object Manager Configutayion, I am editing a "Users Query". I want to show if the user has an email account is using an forwarder. So I THINK I need to change one of the Custom Exchange Attributes to fit. How would I change it? Also, I am unsure if I am following the right path. Can this be done with Hyena?

    This can probably be done, but first I need to know the name of the AD attribute that contains this information. To find it, right click on a user that has an email forwarder, and select Listing Views->All *

    In the right window, find the attribute that contains the forwarding value that you expect, and let me know what the attribute name is.

      From what Microsoft says, this is the attribute of the for attributes added with Exchange:

      ms-Exch-Forwarding-Address Attribute


      Contains a SMTP address that should be used as the mail forwarding address of the object.

      Attribute Value
      adminDescription ms-Exch-Forwarding-Address
      adminDisplayName ms-Exch-Forwarding-Address
      attributeID 1.2.840.113556.1.2.606
      isMemberOfPartialAttributeSet FALSE
      isSingleValued TRUE
      lDAPDisplayName forwardingAddress
      mapiId 35940
      cn ms-Exch-Forwarding-Address
      oMSyntax 64
      objectCategory CN=Attribute-Schema,<SchemaContainerDN>
      objectClass attributeSchema
      rangeLower 1
      rangeUpper 256
      schemaIdGuid /1d3FvNH0RGpwwAA+ANnwQ==
      searchFlags 0
      attributeSecurityGuid VAGN5Pi80RGHAgDAT7lgUA==

      I believe I want "lDAPDisplayName". But I did not see it when I went to "show all" on a user.

        It looks like what you need is altRecipient. You can add this by going to File->Manage Object View->AD Custom. Choose Active Directory User, then New. The Attribute Directory Name is altRecipient, and in Display Title you can put something like ForwardingAddress.

        Save that, then go to File->Manage Object View->AD Queries and you can add it to one of your exising queries, such as User Detailed General.

        When you run the modified query by right-clicking on All Users and choosing Tabular Views->Users(Detailed-General) you will see an additional column for ForwardingAddress.
