I am investigating the possibility of updating Active Directory user account information from Sharepoint 2010 User Profiles.
I am aware that there is functionality to synchronise data from the User Profiles in Sharepoint back to Active Directory however my query relates to the addition of data from a BCS connection.
Specifically, in a scenario where the User Profile data has been supplemented by data imported from a BCS connection to an HR system database, is it possible to then write that additional data back to the Active Directory user account using the User Profiles synchronisation functionality?
It appears that on a User Profile property it is only possible to have a single data mapping, for example an import connection from Active Directory or the BCS connection, it doesn't seem to be possible to have an import from the BCS connection and an export to the Active Directory connection. Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
If this is not possible in Sharepoint 2010, has the functionality changed at all in Sharepoint 2013 to allow this?
