Task Automation

Automating Active Directory tasks

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 AD environment, IT technicians or administrators are forced to painstakingly perform them with conventional or manual methods like using native AD tools, PowerShell, and more. For organizations that grow bigger every day, manually performing these tasks in the complex AD environment becomes a major burden. On top of that, there are certain crucial AD tasks, such as user provisioning, that have no room for any errors.

ADManager Plus' Automation relieves organizations from this burden. Automation helps automate routine AD operations like creating users, deleting inactive users, enabling and disabling users, unlocking users, moving groups, and more. Additionally, it also allows you to track the status of these tasks whenever required.

With ADManager Plus, an AD automation tool, you can:

  • Automate crucial routine AD tasks.
  • Schedule the execution of automated tasks at a desired time.
  • View the history of automation anytime.
  • Define an automation policy to help you to automate a task and execute any other supplementary tasks in a sequence at a schedule specified by you. Example: For an employee contracted for 180 days, you can automate user creation and subsequent cleanup and provisioning actions automatically after 180 days.
  • Implement business workflows in automations to retain control and accountability whenever necessary.
  • Get a clear picture of the automated tasks' history.
  • Delete or modify outdated automations.

Automate and schedule AD tasks

Automating routine tasks is easy with ADManager Plus. You can configure simple automations to create, delete, or modify AD objects in bulk and schedule them to run at the specific times or intervals. 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 up, unlocking users, and more.

View a history of automations anytime

A history of automations helps with keeping track of the status of all automations. 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.

Automation policies

ADManager Plus allows you to configure follow-up tasks in your automations. 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, let's say an organization has a policy of hiring contract employees every once in a while and the contract terminates after six months. In this scenario, the IT admin can configure an automation policy that:

  • Creates user accounts automatically as soon as the user file is updated by HR.
  • Disables the user accounts and move them to a retention folder at the end of the contract, which is 180 days.
  • Deletes those accounts automatically after a retention period stipulated by the company, say 45 days.

This is one scenario. You can use this automation policy to suit your organization as needed.

Implement business workflows in automations

For tasks that are a crucial and need some monitoring, you can implement business workflows in automations. This will propel automated processes through a configured ADManager plus workflow, which ensures that the automated task is stopped for review and approval by a manager or an appropriate user. This system helps eliminate inadvertent errors. Such controlled automations can be useful when you want to retain a certain level of control over the tasks you automate.

Delete or modify AD tasks:

When you no longer need a scheduled automation, you can either delete it or modify it as needed. The self-explanatory automation console will help you manage these tasks easily.

Highlights of ADManager Plus' automations:

  • Automate complex operations involving multiple tasks
  • Leverage review-approval-based controlled automation
  • Keep track of all automated tasks
