The X factors of ADManager Plus' Active Directory automation

You will find two aspects to ADManager Plus Active Directory Automation to be very alluring. They are:

Automated and template-controlled user creation and provisioning

There are a few aspects of ADManager Plus automated user provisioning that are worth paying attention to:

Approval workflow :
Allows you to implement a review-approve process over the automation.

Offers a good measure of control over the Active Directory automation process.

Template-controlled provisioning:
Save all the user account configurations, such as mailbox rights, LCS/OCS properties, etc., as templates and reuse them whenever necessary.

You don't have to scurry between AD and Exchange server or between AD and LCS/OCS snap-ins for property configuration. This method of user provisioning is real quick and time-saving.

Reactive naming format:
ADManager Plus allows you to define reactive naming formats, which improvises names with whatever data is provided in CSV.

In a CSV-based user provisioning operation, a naming operation can go awry (and sometimes account creation itself), if mandatory fields are missing values.

Integrate with HRMS apps and databases

User management is a never-ending process, and more often than not, IT administrators have to count on HR to perform any user management activity. With ADManager Plus' integration and automation capabilities, you can integrate ADManager Plus with human resource management systems (Zoho People, UltiPro, and BambooHR) and external databases (MS SQL and Oracle Database), automate user management tasks in a flash, and sit back and relax.

Besides user provisioning, HRMS-based automations also detect deleted or modified user accounts and update them in your AD. You can choose to process data records in HRMS apps or databases fully or incrementally.

Integrate ADManager Plus with databases and perform the following tasks in a jiffy:

  • Provision, modify, and deprovision user accounts.
  • Configure auto-reply, disable Skype for Business or Lync, delete the home folder, move the home folder, manage user photos, hide recipients from Exchange address lists, disable or delete mailbox actions, and perform more actions on user accounts in your Active Directory.

Automate predefined AD tasks

Be it any kind of enterprise, there would be a set of common Active Directory actions to be performed on user and computer accounts. For example:

  • Move computer accounts from Computer container to appropriate OUs.
  • Track inactive user accounts and disable them.
  • Find locked-out user accounts and unlock them.
  • Trace out users with soon-to-expire passwords, reset passwords for them, and force them to change passwords at next logon.

Basically, it is all about picking out a set of accounts (as needed by the situation at hand) and performing some action (move, or disable, or delete, or reset password, etc.) on them.

ADManager Plus prepackages these actions and scenarios for you and lets you automate them.

Share automations with technicians

ADManager Plus allows the help desk technician or administrator to share the Automation with any help-desk technician or all the help desk technicians configured. By doing so, the technicians with whom the automations are shared will be able to copy or execute them.
