Edit "Create New User" window



At the point of creating a new user, I would like to add ID as a mandatory field.

Is it possible to add an extra field to the tab below and make it mandatory? Do you know any add-on that would allow me to do this?

Marta, I think this is not possible.

I try to find a solution but I think you can't add fields here

I needed this in a project to store additional user information.

finally I use user properties to store the additional fields 

Hi Gaston, 


Thanks for your response. 


In regards to user properties, I considered this solution but it seems like they need to be replicated manually across all the profiles, as they don't appear automatically. 


How did you deal with this? Is there an option for a batch import? I'm also concerned about the Key naming inconsistency, since it will need to be entered manually every time new user is created. 


I will then need to create a command to only report on Key = ID but they Keys may end up being entered as all sorts of differente ID names (EmployeeID, HRsystemID, Empl. ID .....).


Any  tips would be appreciated.

This would require coding. 

At a minimum, it would need you to hack the user screen to provide a method to add the internal "user properties" (which are only visible to admins and code)

To do it properly with real fields, you'd need to code a back-end to store the data as well, and expose it when you need it.
