The UPS animal is a strange one. I just don't know how I can delete or overwrite a property completely.
I have the Job Title property (Imported from AD) filled on all my users. I want to change this property for all users by either overwriting it or completely deleting it.
By going to UPS Administration > Manage User Properties I tried the following things:
- Delete "Job Title". » Doesn't work as Delete is grayed out.
- Edit "Job Title" to now get its data from some random AD property instead of title (e.g. division). » The data already contained in the property for the users is not deleted nor edited (I have a user having e.g. "Blue division" in active directory division, but he still has the old title data)
- Tried playing around with the policy settings (Required/Replicable etc.), no luck.
After every change I did a full synchronization.
What I am asking is how I can overwrite all users' "Job Title" attribute with a new value I specify or delete the attribute or get it from some other AD field.
In general: Why isn't the new data applied when I select a different field from AD the data shall be imported from?
