    We have an existing production installation of ADI with many users…

    We now need to begin using “userPrincipleName” for the username and email address fields.

    How do we re-map this on our existing installation?

    Hi @cwolff,
    please try this out in a test environment:

    – Do a database backup
    – You can remap the existing entries by issuing an SQL statement similar to
    UPDATE wp_user u LEFT JOIN wp_user_meta m ON u.ID = m.user_id SET u.user_email = m.meta_value, u.user_login = m.meta_value WHERE m.meta_key = 'next_ad_int_userprincipalname'
    – Disable (User > Use sAMAccountName for newly created users” (https://active-directory-wp.com/docs/Configuration/User.html)

    On the Attributes tab in ADI configuration, shouldn’t I be able to see the “userPrincipleName” attribute in the dropdown list column for “AD Attributes”?

    userPrincipalName is not automatically populated but you can just enter the attribute in the dropdown list – the list editable.
