Directory attribute

Select an attribute from the list here. You can only use the attributes that are in the schedule manager in SiteVision. The attributes differ from one directory to the other. The following attributes adhere to the InetOrgPerson schedule that most directories support (eDirectory, OpenLDAP etc).

  • givenName (given name)
  • sn (surname)
  • mail (e-mail address)
  • title (title)
  • mobile (mobile)
  • telephonenumber (telephone)
  • description

If you want to use a different attribute that is in InetOrgPerson, fill in the attribute name yourself. Delete the name in the drop-down list, and then enter the attribute name to use.

If you are using a custom object class, you can also use these attributes here.


If this input field is to be mandatory, tick this box.

Multi row

If you want to change the input field on several rows, tick this box. Otherwise, the input field is only one row.

Administrator field

Tick this checkbox if only administrators are to see and change this field.


Here you can choose to validate the fields, that is, make sure the correct thing is filled in the fields, such as e-mail address.

  • No validation - If ticked, the field will not be validated. You can fill in anything in the field. This is the default setting.
  • E-mail address - If ticked, you will receive a regular expression to check that the field includes @ and point to confirm that it is a correct e-mail address.
  • Regular expression - If you want to validate other fields, you can fill in a regular expression yourself.
