Active Directory Integration
AD Integration autopopulate profile fields? (5 posts)

    I'm using AD Integration in conjunction w/ WP 3.1.1 and BuddyPress 1.2.8 - it's working great for auto-creating WordPress accounts based on login name and password but I'm trying to figure out why the plugin doesn't autofill common fields like First Name (givenname), Last Name (sn), etc. using the values it retrieves from Active Directory.

    Am I missing something?

    I am having the same problem. Wp version is 3.1.2 and Active Directory integration 1.0.
    could someone help me?

    FWIW, I've come to realize that this isn't a AD Integration issue but, rather, a Buddypress issue. BP's code for "syncing" its profiles with WordPress user accounts only looks at the username field.

    I'm pretty sure that the key is to modify the xprofile_sync_bp_profile() function (found in wordpress/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-xprofile.php) but I have yet to figure out how to do it.

    I've never been able to populate First Name and Last Name. I get my active directory users created okay and they can log in with their AD credentials but the rest of their information doesn't get populated. I have no clue where to begin to troubleshoot this. Does the first name and last name come in standard or do I have to modify the the user meta page to include those items? If so, what type do you use for each? String?
