Thanks

Hello Boris,

First of all, you need to remove the IP Phone property from Web interface forms. For details, see https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInterfaceCustomization_CustomizeFormsForUserCreationAndEditing.htm.

As for updating the property, it can be done using a business rule triggering After creating/updating a user and the below PowerShell script. In the script:

  • $propertyToSet – Specifies the LDAP name of the property to update.
  • $sourcePropertyName – Specifies the LDAP name of the property whose characters will be used for the update.
  • $numbreOfLastCharacters – Specifies the number of last characters to extract.
$propertyToSet = "ipPhone" # TODO: modify me
$sourcePropertyName = "description" # TODO: modify me
$numbreOfLastCharacters = 4 # TODO: modify me

# Get last cahracters
try
{
    $sourcePropertyValue = $Context.TargetObject.Get($sourcePropertyName)
}
catch
{
    $Context.LogMessage("Property $sourcePropertyName is not specified.", "Warning")
    return
}

$charactersToSet = $sourcePropertyValue.SubString($sourcePropertyValue.Length - $numbreOfLastCharacters)

# Update the user
$Context.TargetObject.Put($propertyToSet, $charactersToSet)
$Context.TargetObject.SetInfo()

If the user name submitted is "jhon doe" all of the users properties will be lower case. We want it to force it to be "Jhon Doe" even if it was submitted in lower case.

We are replacing our Namescape rDirectory product with Adaxes because of the very flexible automation components. I've been able to replicate some of the pages previously ... vast majority of our users, that would function as the default company directory.
