Store AD user information on WQS Server

Store AD user information on WQS Server

(From China - CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Research Institute)

Currently WQS only store name of AD user on WQS server after inserting AD user to WQS Administrator, other information (Email, Phone Number, ect.) are not stored in WQS, if connection between WQS and AD is broken, information (for example, email address) of AD user can't be seen in WQS, then if that information is used for workflow, no message can be sent out because WQS can't get needed value.

Does this mean that a transfered database, something that would be necessary to do when upgrading, would only contain the name of the AD/LDAP user? If the connection with the WQS and AD/LDAP once has been broken, is it possible to re-collect  the AD/LDAP user data at a later point in time (e.g. after an upgrade that requires re-installation)?

That request need storing AD/LDAP user detailed information (including Name, Cell Phones Number, Email, ect.) in WQS's database instance, then even AD connection with WQS is broken, WQS user can see and use those informaiton. Currently in WQS 10.0, only AD/LDAP user's name is stored, and if you want to see and use other information (for example, email of an AD user), you must make sure there is connection with AD/LDAP, but for an end user, he can't konw if connection is ok or not.

You can refresh to get latest AD/LDAP user's information into WQS.
