I am currently exporting data from Active Directory via ldap into another database.

I want to extract the user's ldap.manager. But i only want the name not the full OU path.

The value returned is something like:
CN=Smith\, Mike,OU=Development Control,OU=Public Protection.

Using javascript I want to just extract the manager as 'Mike Smith' from the above.

Can anyone help?

Try something liek this:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
            var test = "CN=Smith\, Mike,OU=Development Control,OU=Public Protection";
            
            alert(test.split(',')[1] + " " + test.split(',')[0].split('=')[1]);
        </script>

Open in new window

Ahh nice thats pretty much it. Gives me "Mike Smith\" but removing the trailing "/" is no issue.

Many thanks.
