In addition to default attributes, you can import other attributes from the AD by mapping them to Security Center custom fields. The custom field mapping can be different for each Active Directory role in your system.

Before you begin

What you should know

No more than 32 custom fields can be mapped to the AD.


  1. From the Links tab of the Active Directory role, under Custm fields, click Add an item ().
  2. Select the custom field and the AD attribute, and then click OK.
    IMPORTANT: The data type of the custom field must match that of the AD attribute: text with text, decimal with decimal, date with date, etc. The Security Center image data type must be mapped to the AD binary data type, and the mapped AD attribute must contain a valid JPEG image.

    The new mapping appears in the Links tab.

  3. Repeat the previous steps as needed.
  4. Click Apply.


The mapped custom fields are displayed in the Links tab. When you synchronize with the AD, they are read-only.
