The Active Directory service used by the Metasys system reads a set of information from the Active Directory service database and populates or updates the user’s Properties based on those values. The following information is read, with the actual Active Directory service attribute names in parentheses:

  • User name (samAccountName, userPrincipalName, CanonicalName)
  • Description (Description)
  • Full name (displayName)
  • Email (mail)
  • Phone number (telephoneNumber)
  • Account disabled (UserAccountControl)

In addition, the Active Directory service database provides the Security Identifier (ObjectSID), which is used internally to uniquely identify the Metasys user.
