Enabling and populating custom user attributes

Before you can enable custom user attributes in Gopher for Users, you must have defined at least one custom attribute on your domain.  This can be done from the Google Workspace admin panel or, in some cases, is done via other 3rd party applications.  Learn more

To view all available custom user attributes and enable them from the Gopher for Users sidebar, go to the Included User Attributes (rightmost) tab.  Each eligible user attribute will be listed with a collapsible field group.


Note that multiple value (array-based) custom attributes are not currently supported by Gopher for Users.  These fields are denoted by a strikethrough.

Enabling a custom attribute will clear the existing contents and add a new color-coded field group to the Manage Existing Users and/or Create New Users tab(s) as relevant.  Loading, creating and updating users will now allow you to include or update values in the columns designated for the enabled attributes.
