The ADManager Plus' "Automation" feature helps automate time consuming Active Directory tasks that delay higher levels of work. Owing to the sensitive nature of the Active Directory environment, IT technicians or administrators are forced to painstakingly perform them with conventional or manual methods like using native AD tools, PowerShell, etc. For organizations that grow bigger every day, manually performing these tasks in the complex AD environment becomes a heavy yoke to carry. On top of that, there are certain crucial Active Directory tasks, such as user provisioning, where one cannot afford to make any errors.
ADManager Plus' Automation relieves organizations from this burden. Automation helps automate routine Active Directory operations like – creating users, deleting inactive users, enabling/disabling users, unlocking users, moving groups etc. In addition it also allows you to track the status of these tasks at any time required.
Automate and schedule AD tasks:
Automating routine tasks is very easy with ADManager Plus. Simple automations you configure will create, delete or modify AD objects in bulk for you.CSV files and generated ADManager Plus reports can be used to feed data into Automations. These Automations can be scheduled to run at a time/interval defined by you. Administrators can use these Automations to perform crucial routines such as password-resets, inactive-user clean ups, unlocking users etc.
View history of automation anytime
Automation's history feature helps to keep a track of all automations' status. It helps you to view a complete history of all configured automations at any time; The history will include when the automation was run, the total number of tasks it includes, which of them are pending, and which of them have been executed etc.
ADManager Plus allows you to configure follow-up tasks in your Automation. The "Automation policy" feature allows you to define a set of subsequent tasks to a main task, sequence them and specify time intervals for their execution. For example, an organization has a policy of hiring employees on contract every often and the contract terminates after 6 months. So, in this scenario, the IT admin can configure an automation policy, which:
This is one scenario. You can use this automation policy to suit your organization as needed.
Implement business Workflow in automation
For tasks that are a little too crucial and need some monitoring, you can implement the business workflow in the automation. This will propel the automated process through a configured ADManager plus workflow, which ensures that the automated task is stopped for a review and approval by a manager or an appropriate user. This system eradicates any room for inadvertent error. Such controlled-Automations can be very useful when you intend to retain a certain level of control over the tasks you automate.
Delete/Modify Active Directory tasks:
When you no longer need a scheduled automation, you can either delete it or modify it as necessitated by your current need. The self-explanatory automation console will help you manage these tasks very easily.
