Write Office365 email address in an AD attribute


Friends,

I need to fill the targetAddress attribute on Active Directory with the
email address set on the Office365. I could successfully provision the
mailbox, however there is no attribute back in the eDir with the
Office365 mail address. If I had it, I could fill the targetAddress via
schema mapping and filter in the AD driver.

Is there a way that you suggest to get that office365 email address sent
to that attribute in AD?

Regards,
Ivan

Hi Ivan,
You just need to properly coordinate your dataflow architecture.

Do you have both drivers in place? (AD, Office365)

On very high level.
1. You have to store your Office365 email address in eDir attribute (I
suggest to use your own custom attribute instead "default" mapping
Internet EMail Address)
2. Add to your AD driver logic that will add this value to
ProxyAddresses. You have to work on logic that will add "single" value
form this field to multi-value AD ProxyAddresses attribute.

I prefer to "prepare"/manage multi-value ProxyAddresses attribute in
eDir and it will simplify your dataflow to AD for this attribute.

This is just one of many possible solution described on very high
level!

Re: Write Office365 email address in an AD attribute


Hello Alex!

Thank you for your help. That is right. I have an AD driver and an
Office365 driver.
I`ve managed to add the office365 email to "emailaddress" attribute in
edir but could no find targetaddress or proxyaddresses in the AD`s
schema mapping.

Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong?

Ivan

Hi Ivan,
Nothing wrong here 🙂

Proxyaddresses just didn't included to "default" AD driver schema
mapping.

If you can't see this Application attribute thru *Manage Application
Schema*, you can "refresh" Application Schema. (Live-> Refresh
Application Schema).
Now when you have it in Application Schema, you can have your mapping
*emailaddress -> Proxyaddresses*, add it to your filter, add policy for
your business logic, etc.

Alex
