Mobile-based AD User Account Deletion

Mobile-based AD User Account Deletion

Periodic and regular deletion of unused, inactive and stale user accounts is one of the key Active Directory housekeeping tasks to keep it efficient, clean and relevant. Sometimes you might also get an ad hoc user deletion request or two for reasons like security. Deleting user accounts without any time lag, whether as a part of your AD cleanup policy or as soon as you get a request is vital to keep your environment up-to-date and secure.

However, with conventional options like native AD tools, PowerShell, etc. it is quite difficult or even impossible to delete user accounts when you are away from your office or on the move. Neither is it practical nor even possible to stay bound to your desk 24*7 and wait for requests to come in. But there is a solution, in fact a very simple one for such a dicey scenario: ADManager Plus mobile apps.

ADManager Plus Active Directory applications for Android mobile devices make it possible for you delete user accounts from the comfort of your home, when you are travelling or just about from anywhere on the globe. In fact you can be wherever you want to be and with these apps, in complete control of all your user accounts you will still be. Download this app for free from Google Play.

This applications are the mobile versions of ADManager Plus, the web-based Active Directory, MS Exchange Server management and reporting tool. Download the 30 day free trial of this tool to explore all the management features, 150+ out-of-the-box reports, AD Delegation, Workflow and AD automation modules.

Apart from deleting user accounts, these mobile apps also allow you to:

An IT Manager needs to see an overall picture of all Active Directory users and objects to take business and mission critical decisions. ADManager Plus provides IT Managers with an at-a-glance dashboard view of the reports on all users, groups, objects and more, to assist in making informed decisions.
The role of an IT Administrator is to manage all network resources, for which up-to-date information on all users, objects, groups along with knowledge of account status of users, is required. The administrator has to perform management tasks like user creation, password resets, unlock user accounts, delete users, enable or disable users, move user home folders and more. ADManager Plus helps IT Administrators in creating and modifying users and objects in "bulk", using a CSV file and Templates. It also provides the facility to generate reports on specific attributes on Active Directory and perform management functions from these Reports.
Help Desks techs are loaded with routine management tasks "delegated" to them by the administrator which involve password resets, account unlocks, user creation and other management functions. ADManager Plus provides the administrator with privileges to delegate specific roles to help desk technicians and restricted to one or more Organizational Units. Help Desk techicians can manage users that have been delegated to them from ADManager Plus web console easily even with little knowledge of command lines and scripts.
IT Auditors are more interested to know the compliance status of an organization, for which they require information on audit status of users. ADManager Plus supports the IT Auditors with reports which are useful in achieving Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory compliance, pertaining to Active Directory management.
