How to propagate Title attribute to the AD Endpoint using etautil

CA Identity Manager


The issue is Title attribute value in IM user is up to date, but somehow the value is not synced up to the AD Endpoint. And this affects many users. We don't want to modify Title attribute value in IM user, but we want to propagate the value to AD Endpoint in bulk. Running "Synchronize User with Account Template" task won't help as Title is not a Capability attribute and will not be propagated to the Endpoint.

Can we utilize etautil command to update/propagate Title to the AD Endpoint in bulk?


Release : 14.x

Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)


You can run etautil command on Provisioning Server machine like below to update Title and propagate to the Endpoint.

etautil -d im -u etaadmin -p <password> update 'eTGlobalUserContainerName=Global Users,eTNamespaceName=CommonObjects,dc=im,dc=eta' eTGlobalUser eTGlobalUserName=<user name> to eTSyncAccounts=1 eTTitle=<title>;

<password> is the etaadmin password
<user name> is the Global User Name
<title> is the correct title

For example

etautil -d im -u etaadmin -p Password01 update "eTGlobalUserContainerName=Global Users,eTNamespaceName=CommonObjects,dc=im,dc=eta" eTGlobalUser eTGlobalUserName="user1" to eTSyncAccounts=1 eTTitle="Vice President";

You need to script this command to do it in bulk.
