Change source for LDAP phone info for DynamicID

Jump to solution

Is it possible to change which LDAP attribute DynamicID uses when looking for mobile phone information?

I'd like to use "otherMobile" rather than "mobile". This is for R80.10

Thanks,

Hi,

Not tested this change but you can try in lab.

In GuiDBedit navigate to:

+Managed Objects -> ldap -> Microsoft_AD

In the lower pane, find the Field: PhoneNumberAttr

Double-click PhoneNumberAttr and change its value to: otherMobile

Click File -> Save all

Exit GuiDBedit, Open SmartDashboard, and install policy to your gateway

Just something else about dynamicID that might help you from CheckPoint support:

"According to R80.10 Mobile Access Admin Guide page 152, The default country code is added if the phone number stored on the LDAP server or on the local file on the gateway starts with 0.

In this case, the user's phone number doesn't start with 0 and therefore the country code wasn't added to it.

In order to the default country code to be added we must have a 0 in the first number of the phone." I hope someone from Check Point can answer why there has to be a 0 in front of the phonenumber? In my country phone numbers doesn't start with 0.
