How to add/edit manager’s name on a User’s Profile using Helpdesk Realm.

    Applies to:
  • SecureAuth Identity Platform
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:

SecureAuth IdP / Identity Platform: All 

Description: Using HelpDesk realm, Help Desk agent is unable to add Manager’s Name on a user’s profile in Active Directory.

Cause: This field cannot be added using manager’s sAMAccountName (or any other AD attribute) instead it requires the manager’s distinguishedName.

Resolution: The default AD attribute for Manager’s Name is ‘manager’ and it accepts the value in the form of a distinguishedName.



In order to update this attribute using HelpDesk realm, follow the steps below:

In Data Tab, map a SecureAuth IdP property (for ex: AuxID1) with this attribute (manager).

Under Post Authentication Tab | configure Helpdesk Page | set AuxID1 as 'Show Enabled'.

Access HelpDesk realm | Pull the user you want Manager's Name updated on | Enter manager's DN in the field | hit Update.
