Defining new user variables

To use this feature, user authentication via Active Directory is required.

You can define your own user variables as local variables based on LDAP attributes. The variable definition has the form Local variable = LDAP variable

  1. On the Security tab, under User authentication, select Active Directory (AD) or Active Directory + Smartcard.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Under User authentication > User variables, edit the following fields:
    OptionDescription
    Local variableThe name of the local variable must begin with the string ELUX (but without $), which can be followed by any characters.
    Example:
    ELUXFULLNAME

    More than one entry can be transferred if you append a # sign to the variable name.
    Example:
    ELUXmemberOf#

    LDAP variableTo be able to use the LDAP variables, the relevant LDAP variable names are assigned to the individual variable as an attribute.

    Example 1:
    ELUXFULLNAME = displayName

    Example 2:
    ELUXmemberOf# = memberOf

    If there are several memberOf values within the search base on the authentication server, they are assigned to the local variables ELUXmemberOf_1, ELUXmemberOf_2 and so on.

  4. Confirm with OK and Apply.

User variables are defined without a leading $, but when they are applied they must begin with $.
