Support » Plugin: Next Active Directory Integration » 2 questions on new version

  • Resolved Maryann R


    I’m migrating from the old version to the new, running multisite.

    Question 1. I want to add a custom field from AD to my wp install, was able to do this before by adding in the string manually under the User Meta tab. Now I can only choose from a dropdown of preset fields (which my field doesn’t exist in, it’s called extensionattribute2 in our setup).

    Question 2. Can I completely hide the settings for this under subsites? I’d like to set it up once and be the same for all, and I don’t want end users to be able to even view the settings link in their dashboard.

    Hey stopha

    I´m glad to hear you are updating to the latest version.

    Answer to question 1)
    You may choose preset values from the attributes dropdown. If you require custom attributes to be mapped like you are describing, you may simply select the dropdown and start typing your custom values. Have a look at my screenshot below.

    assign custom attributes

    Answer to question 2)
    If I understand your question correctly, your want to hide the menu for Active Directory Integration from the Dashboard? All users with administrator privileges are going to be able to view the menu entry. Normal users like editors for example, will not be able to view the menu. You can set all options for your sites to be deactivated and to not show the values. There simply is no reason to disable the side menu for administrators.

    Please let me know if I have answered your questions. Thank you for reporting your issues and feel free to report any further problems you may encounter.

    Thank you for the response! I got the added attribute entered and it works, one thing – it shows the AD field name, not the WordPress Attribute in User Profile, so you may want to switch those variables, so that it displays the WP attribute the user enters instead of the AD field name? (it probably doesn’t matter, but I was expecting to see the WordPress attribute I entered in the user profile, not the AD field name).

    Secondly, I will disable what I need to on the settings link – if I find it’s an issue, I’ll figure out a way to hide it from site admins.

    Thanks again, it looks like it’s working the way I need it to now. Thank you very much for this improved functionality for multisite!!

    Hey stopha

    I dont really understand what you are describing. When you enter your custom attribute extensionattribute2 it will be displayed with the same name in the user profile.

    We are glad to hear you are enjoying our new plugin. Thank you for reporting issues.
