How to specify custom user profile property as manager?


#1

We are using “User Profiles” as data source.

We have a custom property named “MysiteManager”. We want OrgChart to use “MysiteManager” as the “Manager” field to build the OrgChart instead of default “Manager” field.

Currently the JS we are using as below:
var currentUserLogin = GetUrlKeyValue(“accountname”);
var isInitialLoad = true;

renderer.prerenderAction = function(completed) {
try {

    var context = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
    var web = context.get_web();
    var user = web.get_currentUser();
    context.load(user);

    context.executeQueryAsync(function() {
        if (currentUserLogin == "") {
            currentUserLogin = user.get_loginName();
        }
        completed();
    }, function(sender, args) {
        completed();
    });

} catch (e) {
    completed();
}

}

renderer.onLoadingFinished(function() {
if (isInitialLoad) {
isInitialLoad = false;

    renderer.dataProvider.getBoxGroupItemDataById(currentUserLogin, function(dataItem) {
        var userToShowData = currentUserLogin;
        if (dataItem.ParentId != "") userToShowData = dataItem.ParentId;

        //this code controls who's data is show and how many levels to drilldown
        renderer.drillDown(userToShowData, function() {
            renderer.expandNodeLevels(2);
        });

    });
}

});

Note: This is resolved by changing if (dataItem.ParentId != “”) userToShowData = dataItem.ParentId; to if (dataItem.Properties.MysiteManager!= “”) userToShowData = dataItem.Properties.MysiteManager;

Hi @IRFAN_Mohammad,

Currently “user profiles” data source doesn’t support custom manager property. Our paid support can add support for this by request. Please send a request to [email protected] if you are interested.

Our support team will estimate this customization and you will get a reply with estimation and development specification.
