Web Api - userdirectory.getAttribute command


I'm trying to automate some things through web api and encountered a slight problem.

I need to verify user logon names with AD logins. For that I am trying to use userdirectory.getAttribute command. I found some information at that post:

but it seems to be for older version of EPO. for attribute "username" API returns a string of characters, which is probably user logon name but hashed, or encoded in some way. Is there an API based way of decoding it into actual logon name? Did not find any information on that.

Using userdirectory.addItem and userdirectory.addEditAttribute seems to work fine, I can create user and edit lgoon name accordingly for new users, but reading the name is obfuscated.

On the similar toppic - is it possible to edit display name with userdirectory.addEditAttribute command?


Best regards

Hi Jakub, personally I don't think decoding those entries will be easy but please feel free to open a McAfee support call to discuss it in more detail.
