How to read Active Directory attribute data for a User object and insert those details in Adobe Acrobat Identity node.
You have a requirement to insert User information details i.e. Name, Title, or Email for any application. For example, you want to insert these details under the Identity node for Adobe Acrobat Preferences.
In this article, we will demonstrate how to read that information from Active Directory User Object attributes and insert that data for the Identity tab in Adobe Acrobat.
First, locate the registry entries of the required application. For this article, we only showed Registry location and values for Adobe Acrobat, which may also change anytime.
So, make sure you have the correct Registry details. You can test it by manually making changes in RegEdit. Once you’re sure then follow these steps to pre-fill the required information.
Reg Location: HKEY_CUIRRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\Identity
Reg Value: tEMail – tFirstName – tLastName – tName – tTitle
Note: This step will let you access the AD user object attribute for the logged-on user and turn them into variables for use within the Registry Preferences.
This will read First and Last Name values from AD User Object’s attribute and save it for tName registry value for Adobe Acrobat.
