Hey All,

 

I've another question around Custom Fields, I've set up a Custom field called "Active Directory Description" which is populated via a Powershell script linking into the Web Configurator to import the data that the script gets from Active Directory.

 

Now the problem i seem to have come across is that, the custom field is filled correctly for 1084 out of 1831, the ones that i am struggling with when i go into them i can see that the custom field has added to them automatically, now i thought to myself well realistically i want these fields to become mandatory, but looking through the guides if i add this custom field as mandatory i then have to enter a value which from testing if i enter anything will not be overwritten.

 

Can i use wildcards or is there another way to automatically add this to all computers?

 

Cheers

Harry
