I am having the same requirement to change the mailNickName from
SourceName to output of Substring(
length=1,sourceAttribute(Givenname)+ SourceAttribute(Lastname))
I tried all the forums post but i am not getting it to work.

Can you help me on this, Which policy you changed and what attributes
needs to be updated for this?
