GALsync Special – Part 5:: modify display name

28 Oct

galdis00.JPG When synchronizing mail objects between forests you might want to modify the display name in the target. This is sometimes required if in source display name is built by “<surname> <lastname>” but in target you need “<lastname>, <firstname>”. Or you want to present synchronized objects as “<lastname>, <firstname> [external]”.

 

Step 1:

When importing you can compose a  new display name. For example: surname, givenname

Step 5:

Add comma and blank after the variable “%sn%” and click “Add property” to add the variable for the given name. Finally the string %sn%, %givenName% is composed.

Step 7:

Now you can apply and this rule will build the display name from the properties surname, givenname.

 

If you would like to display all synchronized objects with a “[external]” string, you only need to use  the string “%sn%, %givenName% [external]”.
