fix

To add the Employee ID attribute to the Quick Start Search menu:

  1. In Windows Explorer, go to C:\InetPub\wwwroot\DRAWeb\WebConsole\BuiltIn<\Common\Scripts\SearchForms
  2. Copy these two files:
    • CreateQuickStartForm.asp
    • CreateUserSearchForm.asp

  3. Paste the copied files to C:\InetPub\wwwroot\DRAWeb\WebConsole\Custom\Common\Scripts\SearchForms

    Note: Any files in the Custom directories are loaded with precedence over the files located in the BuiltIn directories. The original files do not change.

  4. Add the following lines of script to the CreateQuickStartForm.asp:

    if bShowUsers then
    set UserOption = SearchForm.AddClassOption("User", WebConsole.GetAppMsg("QUICK_START_USER_OPTION_NAME"))
    'these params are never actually used in this form - but the searchform object will
    ' throw an error if they are not specified...
    UserOption.OperationName = "AccountEnum"
    UserOption.QueryTemplate = "user(%SEARCH_PROPERTY%='%MATCH_STRING%')"

    if Session("FocusDomainIsAD") then
    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "userPrincipalName", WebConsole.GetAppMsg("USER_SEARCH_SEARCHPROPERTY_LOGON_CAPTION")
    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "samAccountName", WebConsole.GetAppMsg("USER_SEARCH_SEARCHPROPERTY_LOGON_PRE_W2K_CAPTION")
    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "EmployeeID", "Employee ID"

    else

    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "samAccountName", WebConsole.GetAppMsg("USER_SEARCH_SEARCHPROPERTY_LOGON_CAPTION")
    end if

  5. Save the changes to add the Employee ID attribute field to the drop-down list as Employee ID.

  6. Add the following lines of script to the CreateUserSearchForm.asp:

    if Session("FocusDomainIsAD") then
    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "userPrincipalName", WebConsole.GetAppMsg("USER_SEARCH_SEARCHPROPERTY_LOGON_CAPTION")
    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "samAccountName", WebConsole.GetAppMsg("USER_SEARCH_SEARCHPROPERTY_LOGON_PRE_W2K_CAPTION")
    if Request(Application("REQUEST_KEY_QUICK_START_MODE")) <> "" then
    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "EmployeeID", "Employee ID"
    End If

    else

    UserOption.AddSearchProperty "samAccountName", WebConsole.GetAppMsg("USER_SEARCH_SEARCHPROPERTY_LOGON_CAPTION")
    end if

  7. Save the changes to add the actual value of the EmployeeID attribute to the results page as Employee ID.

You do not need to stop or restart the NetIQ Administration service. Refresh or relaunch the Web Console home page to implement the changes.
