Active Directory Account Provisioning Templates

ADManager Plus' Account Creation Templates help in single-click creation of Active Directory accounts, with all the required attributes. To simplify the process of creating new accounts, this web-based Active Directory management tool offers different types of templates like:

This tool also makes it easy to modify Active Directory accounts through its account re-provisioning templates that can be customized to suit your needs. Trying to achieve the same with just the native tools, PowerShell, etc. will only create more complications.

Active Directory User Provisioning Templates

User creation templates simplify and also standardize the process of creating new user accounts in Active Directory. These templates also allow you to save the standard or common values and formats of all the attributes which are common to many users across the organization.

Moreover, you can create multiple templates corresponding to the number of roles in your organization with the settings, permissions and privileges specific to each role. By just applying the appropriate templates you can create new user accounts, in one step, with all the required settings including:

  • General Attributes like Customized formats for logon name, SAM Account name, display name, full name, etc.
  • Account Details: Password, Group and Profile settings, Account Properties, etc.
  • Contact Details: Contact information like Home Phone, Mobile Fax, etc. Organization attributes like Title, Department, Company, etc.
  • Exchange Server Attributes: Mail Server, Mailbox Store, Mail alias format, Mailbox Storage limits, Delivery Restrictions, Delivery Options, etc.
  • Terminal Services attributes: Profile, Home Folder, Start Up Program, Session Limits, Remote Control settings, etc.
  • LCS/OCS Attributes: Communication Servers, Federation Settings, Archiving Settings, etc.
  • Custom Attributes: Using this option you can create customized attributes for only one specific operation or add a new custom attribute permanently to your Active Directory, as per your requirement.

Another huge advantage of these templates: you can assign these user creation templates to Helpdesk Technicians or even the technically novice users like HR Executives to delegate the task of creating new user accounts and offload the unnecessary burden off your back.

Rule-based user provisioning: These templates also include user creation rules that allow you to automatically populate the desired fields of the user accounts being created, conditionally or unconditionally, even before the user accounts are actually created in Active Directory. In other words, using these rules, you can set up conditions that, upon being satisfied in the user account being created, trigger the automatic population of the specified attributes. For example, using these rules, you can set the manager attribute and also the group membership for the user being created based on the value specified for the department attribute.

If you do not want to set up the rules in the UI, you can use the Import CSV option with the appropriate headers and values to configure creation rules. The first row of the CSV must contain the following headers: RuleName, LdapName, IsCondition, MatchCriteriaId, ProcessMatchCriteria, and Value.

In addition to provisioning users, with user modification templates and the CSV import feature, you can modify user accounts in bulk with just UI-based actions.

Active Directory Computer Provisioning Templates

Similar to user provisioning templates, computer creation templates allow you to create new computer accounts in the Active Directory with all the required attributes, in just a single step. These templates can also be used to store and configure standard values for computer attributes like:

  • General Attributes: Container or location, Managed by, Group attributes, etc.
  • Dial-in Attributes: Permissions for Remote Access via Dial-in or VPN.

The huge advantage of ADManager Plus' Computer Provisioning templates is its 'Drag-n-Drop' customization feature. Using this feature, you can customize the template to suit your needs. That is, you can have only those attributes that you need in the templates. Also, you can make any attribute read only or editable, at just a click of the button. This customization allows you secure critical attributes of your computer accounts.

Also, you can customize the templates based on the helpdesk technicians to whom the template will be assigned and their roles, by having only those attributes that the technicians should be allowed to modify or update.

Active Directory Group Provisioning Templates

Active Directory Group Creation Template

Active Directory group creation templates offer administrative and management advantages as they make group provisioning simple through their distinctive ability to configure new groups along with all the appropriate attributes or settings and also add members to them in one single process. In other words, by just applying the appropriate group creation template while creating a group, you can configure:

  • General Attributes like Group Name, Container, Group Scope and Type, e-mail, etc.
  • Group attributes like members, member of, manager, etc.
  • MS Exchange Mail attributes e-mail alias, associated administrative groups, display name, e-mail delivery restrictions, etc.

Another unique advantage of these group creation templates compared to native AD tools, PowerShell scripting, etc. is the 'drag and drop' customization component. This component makes it possible to customize the templates exactly as per your organizational requirements by making the required attributes mandatory, hidden-or read-only.

Moreover, you can place in the templates only those attributes that are required by simply selecting and dragging them into or out of the templates. Based on the technician to whom you will be assigning the group creation template, you can customize it to display only the appropriate attributes and secure the critical ones by making them read-only or even hidden.

This tool also offers a free download of its trial version to help you get a firsthand experience of the benefits of these account creation templates.

Active Directory Contact Provisioning Templates

Contact creation templates simplify and quicken the process of creating new contacts in Active Directory. They help you to create contacts with all the required settings in just one step. Further, these templates also allow you to save the values of attributes that are common to multiple contacts and reuse them while creating new contacts.

Using these templates, you can configure all the attributes of Active Directory contacts like:

  • General Attributes: Container, Office, Telephone Number, etc.
  • Address Attributes: City, Country, Home Telephone, Mobile, etc.
  • Group Attributes
  • Organization Attributes: Title, Department, Company, etc.
  • Exchange Attributes: Proxy email addresses, simple display name, delivery restrictions, etc.
  • Custom Attributes: This allows you to create customized attributes with the option of using it for only one specific operation or adding it permanently to your Active Directory.

The account provisioning templates along with Active Directory workflow and automation empower you to put in place an approval-based or even a completely automated account provisioning and management system.
