Issue/Introduction

When configuring TDM to work with AD, I'm seeing two fields in our LDAP records that are related to the user's email address; "EMAILAddress" and "mail". Which of these are used by TDM?

Environment

Release : 4.9.1

Component :

Resolution

The AD default is mail, so this is the field TDM would use for mapping. EMAILAddress would be a custom field that someone created, and TDM would not know anything about this field, so we would not use it for mapping.
