Can Live Lookup get Customer ID from Active Directory


Is there a way I can make the Live Lookup populate the Customer ID field with a field from my Active Directory? We use the employee number for a lot of things here. So we put the employee number in the user account description field. It would be nice if Live Lookup could bring that across too.

If it’s a relative simple matter of rewriting a query or php routine, I’m willing to do it if you can tell me where it is.

Thank you


Sure, you just have to put that ID in the <customer_id> xml tag and that should do it.


Thanks Ian!

It’s been a while since I set this up. Could you tell me where I need to set the XML tag? I have a Windows based install.



You’ll need to look in admin-settings-live lookup to see where the URL is pointing, then edit that file. It’s usually near the bottom of that file.
