A user interface extension does not expose an attribute.

I cannot access certain attributes in DRA.

When I try to view a specific attribute, DRA does not display it in the UIE.

Certain classes and attribute types are not currently supported by DRA.


DRA loads the following classes from AD:

  • BuiltinDomain
  • Computer
  • Contact
  • Container
  • DomainDns
  • Group
  • OrganizationalUnit
  • User
  • MsExchSystemObjectsContainer

DRA loads the following property types:

  • CaseIgnoreString
  • DirectoryString
  • DN
  • DNWithOctetString
  • GeneralizedTime
  • IA5String
  • NumericString
  • ObjectSecurityDescriptor
  • OID
  • PrintableString

To identify Active Directory properties managed through user interface extensions:

  1. In the left pane, expand Configuration Management.
  2. Click User Interface Extensions.
  3. In the list pane, select the appropriate user interface extension.
  4. In the details pane, click the Properties tab.
  5. To view the way in which DRA displays and applies a property, select the appropriate Active Directory attribute or schema extension from the list and click the Properties icon.

DRA does not currently expose multi-valued property fields in the user interface extensions. An enhancement request has been added to include this functionality in a future release of DRA.
