Do you mean the attribute isn't visible in the user enties in the
entry editor? Or isn't is visible in the schema browser?

In the first case please check if the new attribute's usage is
"userApplication" and returned by a search when requesting all user
attributes using the "*" atrribute selector. If the attribute isn't a
userApplication attribute you can try to enable the "Fetch operational
attributes while browsing" option [1].

In the latter case you can try to reload the schema in the connection
properties [2].

Hope that help,
