How to write to AD attribute mailNickname from IM
Article ID: 145610
CA Identity ManagerCA Identity GovernanceCA Identity PortalCA Identity Suite
Is there a way to write\ set the mailNickname Active Directory attribute through CA Identity Manager (IM) without using Microsoft Exchange?
Release : 14.3
Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)
You cannot update the mailNickname attribute using the CA Identity Manager (IM) Active Directory (AD) Connector unless you have the Exchange Schema deployed. The AD connector will ignore any updates to Exchange attributes if CA IM is not going to provision Exchange through it.
One possible workaround is to implement some custom IM Event Listener code or perhaps look at using a Policy Xpress (PX) Policy to launch a custom external java code which would then perform some type of activity. Please refer to the links below relating to IM API and PX Policies running java code.
