The sAMAccountName attribute applies to users and groups. This attribute is required, and must be included on task screens used to create users and groups.
Note: When creating users, the value of the sAMAccountName attribute cannot exceed 20 characters. This restriction does not apply to groups.
You can write a custom logical attribute handler that generates a unique sAMAccountName automatically when a user or group is created. In this case, you can include the sAMAccountName attribute as a hidden field on Create User and Create Group screens.
See the Logical Attributes chapter in the Programming Guide for Java for more information.
