User Address Book Attributes

The address book attributes are used to provide supplementary identification and information for a user. Their content is defined by the user and the user's organization. These attributes can be viewed and managed by the Active Directory User and Computers snap-in or the Windows Address Book (WAB).

cThe country/region in the user's address.

The country/region is represented as the two-character country/region code based on ISO-3166. For the valid codes, see Values for countryCode.

displayNameThe name displayed in the address book for a particular user. This is usually the combination of the user's first name, middle initial, and last name.
directReportsThe list of users that directly report to the user. The users listed as reports are those that have the manager attribute set to this user. Each item in the list is a linked reference to the object that represents the user; therefore, the Active Directory server automatically updates this attribute when a user's manager attribute adds or removes this user as a manager. The items are represented as distinguished names.

Each item in the list is a linked reference to the managed object; therefore, the Active Directory server automatically updates the managedObjects attribute when an object's managedBy attribute adds or removes this user as its manager. The items are represented as distinguished names.
