I have a requirement to allow users to only set their Department via a Locked MMS Termset. Also, whatever the user choose from the Termset should be synced back.
Im trying to see if there is a out of the box way of doing it. Firstly, The best would've been to just use the Default Department profile property, but unfortunately the "User Term Set" option is greyed out (propably because it behaves like a system field of some sort).
Next up, I though about creating a New Department property with a different name and set this property to use a Term set and then Export back to AD. I would then hide the default property in the Edit Page and show this on in the Edit page. What happens now is that everything works as it should, but the default property which shows on the profile home page does not sync back from AD once the New Department property has synced.
I also tried to edit the Profile view page by adding the New Department property I created, but it doesn't show any value (propably because it uses a MMS Term set).
Should I go ahead and createa a custom UserControl to extract the value from the Profile and show on the page?
