Synchronization of AD account's fields with EPi's user fields

Hello, I'm trying to synchronize some AD account's fields to EPi's user fields. In this moment, only username is synchronized. "First Name", "Last Name" etc are not sunchronized at all. I found some comments related to use of ldapSync section within the web.config and that it does this kind of mapping. For this purpose I created the schedule job that is described in ( and used the call of LdapAuthenticationProvider.SyncUserSettings method. "SDK documentation 4.6.1" descibes this method as "Updates the PersonalizedData object with values from an ldap source according to the settings in the /episerver/ldapSync section of web.config ". So, according to the sdk description I defined the "ldapSync" section within the episerver section like below:
.... ..... After manual starting of schedule job I haven't synchronized last name. What am I doing wrong? Is there any other way to define mapping of AD fields to EPi user's fields? .. or this way is good? (besides LastName, FirstName I have other fields too) Thanks in advance Best Regards Vlada

Anyway, as document describes, the real code should be like this: ...
... ... ... After those changes everything works perfect. /Vlada
