Unable to sync various AD LDAP attributes

Jump to solution

Okay, I've already have read this tread: but some links there are not working now, but I still have a problem with Alfresco Community ver 5.2, on syncing some user attributes from AD. 

I've succesfully configured LDAP authentication and synchronization of e-mail, company and name, but some other attributes are not syncing. No JobTitle, MobilePhone or Department. 

So is it possible to get those attributes from AD to Alfresco via LDAP? 

Here is a piece of my alfresco-global.properties sync parameters:

 

ldap.synchronization.timestampFormat=yyyyMMddHHmmss'.0Z'
ldap.synchronization.userIdAttributeName=sAMAccountName
ldap.synchronization.userFirstNameAttributeName=givenName
ldap.synchronization.userLastNameAttributeName=sn
ldap.synchronization.userOrganizationalIdAttributeName=company
ldap.synchronization.userEmailAttributeName=mail
ldap.synchronization.userMobileAttributeName=mobile
ldap.synchronization.userJobTitleAttributeName=title
ldap.synchronization.userOrganizationAttributeName=department
ldap.synchronization.userCompanyTelephoneAttributeName=telephoneNumber
ldap.synchronization.defaultHomeFolderProvider=largeHomeFolderProvider
ldap.synchronization.groupDisplayNameAttributeName=displayName
ldap.synchronization.groupType=group
ldap.synchronization.personType=user
ldap.synchronization.groupMemberAttributeName=member
ldap.synchronization.enableProgressEstimation=true
ldap.synchronization.userAvatarAttributeName=thumbnailPhoto

Did anyone solved this problem? 

Thanks.

The attributes to sync is a fixed set in Alfresco but you could extend the personAttributeMapping if you have a model to store these values. Take a look to this thread:

Is this possible on the Alfresco 6.0 Community Edition to Synchronize the Job Title and Localization...

Please, see the difference between threads, no sync, and no syncync for SOME attributes, I have perfect auth and sync for some users attributes, but I need some more importants fields be completed from AD, by LDAP sync. The thread I've linked above - has dead links on possible solutions, and the thread link you've given is about no sync at all. Do you see the difference? Also I've seen this one.

Thats not the solution. Thats not my problem.
