I would like to collect some static ('application related') text to custom group attribute (type). I am collecting groups from AD but can't figure out how to add this text. Adding it between quotes or apostrophes does not work.
Few ideas for you to consider:
Obviously this is a manual process
Other approaches are available. It will be more productive if you describe what you are trying to achieve (no technically, but rather from a process perspective)
Did you create additional attribute for the groups in Aveksa?
To which Aveksa attribute you are tyring to map AD attribute.
We are using custom attributes and didn't face any problem in this matter.
Sure, I have created a group attribute named "type".
How did you configure your Active Directory collector? In sql I would solve it with the following code:
select 'application related' as collected_type from xy
and then map sql result's "collected_type" to Aveksa custom group attribute (type). But in ldap I did not find such possibility.
From process perspective I have to create custom forms with custom logic. I wanted to filter on group type and decide if a group is requestable. Collecting static value would be the easiest way (I have already filled this attribute with sql collectors) but will find some other way.
Let me note that a collected group attribute can be also editable just as it were managed. In this case it is quite useful though it is pretty weird there is difference between a group attribute and for example an app role attribute. In case of app role collected attributes editable checkbox does not appear in admin > attributes.
With regards to your statement:
"Let me note that a collected group attribute can be also editable just as it were managed"
