Query Building: Adding 'EmployeeNumber' (Different from EmployeeID) as a reportable attribute using the Users Datasource in bv-Control for Windows.


Solution



The Employee-Number Attribute is a number assigned to an employee other than the ID and is hidden by default. You can use ADSIEdit.msc to determine the value of this user account attribute. 

Warning: ADSIEdit is available as part of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Support Tools. If you use the ADSI Edit snap-in and you incorrectly modify the attributes of Active Directory objects, you can cause serious problems. These problems may require you to reinstall the Operating System. Symantec cannot guarantee that problems that occur if you incorrectly modify Active Directory object attributes can be solved. Do not modify any attribute and use it at your own risk.

Follow these steps to build the query:

    1. In the RMS Console, launch the Query Builder Wizard by clicking the Red Book on the icon bar at the top.
    2. Expand bv-Control for Windows, then select the Users data source.
    3. On the Field Specification Tab, expand Raw Directory Attributes
    4. Double click the String Attribute field to add it to Selected Fields at the bottom.
    5. The String Attribute dialog box appears. Click Change Descriptor.
    6. Expand Advanced descriptor.
    7. Double Click on 'Enter a String Attribute'.
    8. In the Additional Settings Dialog box type 'EmployeeNumber' for Attribute name.
    9. Click OK.
    10. Click OK.
    11. Scope to the target objects.
    12. Click OK and Save or Run the query.
