Bulk User

Enabling and disabling Active Directory user accounts

One of the most common yet cumbersome tasks that AD administrators have to perform is enabling and disabling Active Directory (AD) users. Although these operations are reasonably simple when individual AD user accounts are at play, things become labor intensive when they are carried out in bulk and at frequent intervals.

When technicians use native AD tools and PowerShell scripts to perform these tasks, they are likely to run into the hurdle of having insufficient AD privileges, using error-prone scripts, and other issues. This eventually leads to many technicians looking for an effective Active Directory tool that can bulk enable and disable AD users. Using ADManager Plus, administrators can instantly enable and disable AD users in bulk without elevating their privileges with just a few mouse clicks.

Enabling AD users

Sometimes, when suspicious user accounts are being disabled as a part of an organization's security practices, the wrong user accounts may accidentally be disabled. In this case, it is imperative that such accounts are enabled immediately to prevent any loss in productivity.

With ADManager Plus, you can enable disabled AD user accounts in bulk easily without a single PowerShell script. Simply import a CSV file containing the list of disabled user accounts and enable them all at once. If needed, you can also generate a list of all disabled users from a domain or OU using the built-in report, and enable these disabled users right from the report itself.

Disabling AD users

In an era where cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving and are becoming increasingly powerful, one of the most common entry points for cyberattacks is through obsolete AD user accounts. While using ADUC or PowerShell might cut it for disabling individual users, a more robust tool is needed when this task has to be frequently carried out in bulk, especially in mid- and large-sized organizations. With ADManager Plus, you can disable multiple AD user accounts at once with simple point-and-click actions. You can also view the list of all enabled users in a particular domain and disable them instantly with this tool.

Using ADManager Plus, you can configure domain-specific disable policies. What this means in action is that each time a user account from any domain is disabled, the tool can execute a preconfigured set of operations specific to that domain automatically.
