I was tasked with using an existing ldap attribute or create a new one that will be used for a 3rd party apps workflow. The attribute will need to support text and not just numbers,
I am hesitant to create a new attribute for this since attributes cannot be deleted once created and I have no idea if this 3rd party workflow will even stick around.
I was thinking to just use an existing attribute in AD that is not currently being used. Does anyone have a good recommendation on which attribute would be a good candidate for this? I have been looking them over but each time I think I find one I discover that it is not a good idea to populate for misc. reasons (displays in GAL, messes with Azure AD Connect, etc..).
Domain is 2008 R2 with Exchange 2012 on-prem and using Azure AD Connect for O365 migration. I believe those are the only things integrated with AD at this time.
