Hello,

I need to update a custom attribute based off of another custom attribute.

I'm terrible at writing scripts and code so I'm looking for someone to pretty much type it out for me.

Thank you

In my head it goes like this

If the users Office (extensionattribute5) is "this" change extensionattribute3 to "this"

something along the line of
Get-ADUser -Properties enterattributename -Filter {enterattributename -like "value to search" } |Set-ADUser –replace @{ enterattributename2 =”value to change”}

Open in new window
