Configure an Organizational Hierarchy attribute

Organizational Hierarchy attributes define organizational hierarchies that can be selected as alert or event targets. Organizational hierarchies are commonly created by integrating an external user directory, such as LDAP or Microsoft Active Directory.
You can also create an organizational hierarchy by importing it from a  CSV file. For more information, see Import an organizational hierarchy.
BlackBerry AtHoc
User Sync Client creates the organizational hierarchy from LDAP. If you are using the User Sync Client and you want make changes to the organizational hierarchy manually, those changes may be lost when the next user synchronization occurs.
The organizational hierarchy attribute is not available in super enterprise or enterprise organizations. Organizational hierarchy attributes are available only in suborganizations or standalone organizations.
If you update an existing organizational hierarchy and a mapped node is not included in the new hierarchy, any user that is mapped to the excluded node is automatically mapped to the root node. Users can be mapped to the correct node by using a new organizational hierarchy during a user import or user sync.
