Extension Attribute for AD

Hello,

Is it possible to add an object from AD into Jamf? If so, can someone walk me through it. I would like to add something that needs to be turned on or off by another team, but would like to reflect this so our help desk can look at the user and verify if its been turned off or on.

Do you have "Collect user and location information from LDAP" enabled in Inventory Collection?

If you create a new computer extension attribute you can select "LDAP Attribute Mapping" as the Input Type and use whatever LDAP Attribute you'd like8fc6259f65f24072bd8977c13ff15b9f

It doesn't appear for me even though I have it, any suggestions?

Is your Jamf Pro server connected to AD? I believe that option only shows up if it’s connected to an LDAP server.

It is, which is why I cannot figure out why this doesn’t populate.

Under I believe Inventory Collection there's a check box you need to enable if I remember right. I had the same issue and was pulling my hair out. I don't currently have access to my jamf server(i'm not at work). So I can't remember the exact name.

You may need to enable the "Collect user and location information from LDAP" option in Jamf Pro Settings > Computer Management > Inventory Collection.

Have you tested the LDAP Server mappings to verify it is working as expected? Jamf Pro Settings>System Settings>LDAP Servers, click on the name of your LDAP Server. There should be a Test button on the bottom right. I'd check three settings, User Mappings, User Group Mappings, User Group Membership Mappings.

Yes, which is why this is so confusing. I’m not sure why it doesn’t populate.

I've tried setting this up for ages.... I have all the above settings configured, LDAP mappings test works, LDAP extension attribute set to "memberOf" yet when I create a smart group for a specific LDAP group there are no members.
This is driving me and Jamf support to their wits end.
