I have an Alfresco Community 4.2.e running and synchronized with Active Directory with functional level 2008. I import users and groups from Active Directory.
# The attribute on LDAP group objects to map to the authority name property in Alfresco ldap.synchronization.groupIdAttributeName=cn
For political reasons in my organization, I need that the names of groups could be renamed without loosing any functionality. If I map the groupIDAttribute from alfresco to the 'cn' attribute from Active Directory, and someone changes the name of a group, the result is that all the associations, of the group are deleted and people leave their sites.
My Question: Is there any attribute from Active Directory, that I could use as unique identifier for my groups in Alfresco? Obviously this ID has to be 'rename consistent' as the groups are in my Active Directory Environment.
