Configure User Deprovisioning

When an employee leaves an organization, the account of this employee should be properly deprovisioned. In the majority of cases, it is necessary to disable the user account, hide the user's mailbox from the global address list, move the user to a specific OU, change group membership of the user, execute a script, etc. With the help of Custom Commands you can automate and standardize the whole process of user deprovisioning.

For user deprovisioning, Adaxes provides a built-in Custom Command called Deprovision. By default, this Custom Command performs a set of standard deprovisioning operations that can be customized to meet the specific needs of your company. In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure the built-in Custom Command Deprovision.

If some undesired changes were made to a built-in Custom Command, you can discard all changes made to this Command. For this purpose, right-click the Custom Command you need and click Restore to Initial State in the context menu.

1Launch Adaxes Administration Console, expand Adaxes service \ Configuration \ Custom Commands \ Builtin. Select the Deprovision Custom Command. The parameters of this Custom Command will be displayed in the Result Pane (located to the right).
