Active Directory Custom Attribute

Posted on 2004-11-29
Last Modified: 2008-05-30
I've created a new custom attribute in Active Directory. I've created the OID, and registered the class. I've also added the class to the 'Groups' attribute. How do I now add data to this field? If I go to 'manage users'....and right click on a group and select properties, my custom attribute doesn't appear. Obviously I'm missing a step. Can anyone help? I want my custom attribute field to appear on the properties for 'groups'. Help!

    Accepted Solution

    Microsoft® Active Directory® directory service provides a mechanism for adding pages to the property sheet displayed for a directory object from the Active Directory administrative snap-ins or the Microsoft Windows® shell. To add a page to the property sheet, implement a property sheet extension.

    This assumes that the reader is familiar with COM operation and component development using C++. It is not currently possible to create an Active Directory property sheet extension using Microsoft® Visual Basic®.
