Notes field value in Configuration Items object
Does the Notes field of a CI in SCSM correlate with the Notes field (info attribute) in Active Directory?
I am wanting to have a query list control in an ARO that only returns users with a particular value in the Notes field of the CI, but I need to populate and maintain the value from AD.
If the two fields do not currently correlate to each other, is there a way of doing so, so the value in the CI can be updated when the AD connector next synchronises?

The LDAP function of the Asset Import Connector is a little hidden gem for this sort of thing (if you have a licence for it). I use it to pull through Employee ID or CostCode type properties fairly often.5
Tom_Hendricks Customer Super IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭✭Writing PowerShell that works with AD objects and then syncs SCSM objects to them is pretty straightforward, along the lines of what @Adam_Dzyacky says above, but I find that using the Asset Import connector for things like this is just simpler if I am having other people support it (and easier to see the schedules than in a security-restricted SMA implementation, etc.).
They're both right, but I think the connector earned a plug here.5
You could use the Asset Import Connector to accomplish this, in a separate job that would run after your AD Sync, though.

Thanks for the assist guys.
Very much appreciate the input.
Looking into the Asset Import Connector as this sounds to be the more simpler resolution to implement than trying to code up a PS script.
