Scalable workflow automation

Automate any task for frictionless execution.

Turn complex manual tasks into logic-based automated workflows. Make them seamlessly trigger after specific events in your directory, schedule them, or execute them on-demand in one click.

Web Interface for Active Directory

Single Web interface for AD, Microsoft Entra ID, Exchange, and Microsoft 365

Do you believe controlling connected systems from different consoles is how it should be? We don't.

Equip administrators and help desk technicians with a convenient web-based interface for a unified management experience. Deploy a self service portal where users can effortlessly manage their own accounts. Create your own web interfaces and tailor their features to your managers, HR department, or any other employee role in the company.

Password self service

Never again let forgotten passwords impede the productivity of your users.

Enable your users to securely reset their forgotten passwords and unlock accounts. Out of office and offline password reset is an option, covering those who forget their password while working from home or on business trips.

Role-based delegation

Manage permissions efficiently in an everchanging environment.

The role-based access model employed by Adaxes will be your stepping stone to security best practices in any environment. Centralize permission management for your AD, Entra ID, Exchange, and Microsoft 365 to make sure everything is accounted for. Delegate tasks and dynamically allocate permissions with a snap of your fingers.

Approval based Workflow

Rescue admins from wasting time on doing what others can do.

Add approval steps to any task in your environment and delegate it safely to managers, supervisors, or anyone else really. Empower the self service capabilities of your users by giving them more freedom while retaining complete control.


All information about your environment at your fingertips.

Literally hundreds of built-in reports to satisfy even the most meticulous auditor. Even if the built-in reports don't cut it, you can always create and schedule custom reports to cover any scenario.

Key Benefits

Reduced workload

Automated tasks, streamlined user provisioning, and a self-service portal massively reduce the routine workload of your IT staff.

Increased security

Role-based access control, approval-based workflows, and automated user provisioning significantly boost the security of your environment, allowing you to embrace the principle of least privilege to full extent.

Efficient audit and monitoring

A comprehensive reporting platform simplifies the audit of your directory, Exchange, and Microsoft 365, making your environment more regulated and controlled.

Corporate standard enforcement

Adaxes enables you to enforce standards on your user accounts and other objects, minimizing the human factor when it comes to accurate data entry and management.

Microsoft MVP for Office Servers and Services specializing in Exchange Server and Microsoft 365

Once I saw Adaxes in action I realized it would very easily replace many of the native management tools that IT admins use, such as AD Users & Computers, the Exchange Admin Center, and the collection of custom scripts that tend to build up over time. ... Personally, if I was implementing automation for Active Directory and Exchange administration by an IT operations team today, I would seriously consider building it on Adaxes. If you’re an AD administrator, I whole-heartedly think you should give Adaxes a try.

Jeffery Hicks is an IT veteran with almost 25 years of experience, much of it spent as an IT infrastructure consultant specializing in Microsoft server technologies

The ability to build workflows and automation to typical management tasks is a very compelling reason to give Adaxes a try. If you can carve out the time to get everything configured the way you need it, I think the product will make you a much more efficient and happier administrator

This is truly an amazing product. The attention to detail is astounding. The fact that they even included a nice PowerShell script editor built into the product clearly feels like they aren’t considering PowerShell a competitor like some other automation products but rather a complement to finish off the last mile of automation for their customers
If you’re an AD administrator, I whole-heartedly think you should give Adaxes a try

Adaxes Active Directory Management offers many advantages over the plain Active Directory management features found in Windows Server, especially in environments with multiple domains and/or forests. Every Active Directory admin will appreciate the web interface for help desk personnel and the web interface for self-service, with its granular self-service password reset capabilities.

Overall, I really liked the product and the direction they have taken it. I personally recommend checking it out, and am actually in the process of implementing it in my current workplace as a result of this review, as a paid product!

Adaxes completely refreshes Active Directory object management by providing a complete picture GUI that can control workflow, handle customization, and integrate with multiple tools... This same attention to detail is in each process that Adaxes controls. If I had to bet, the developers of Adaxes were Active Directory administrators that got tired of being inefficient.

Adaxes turns complex, multi-step operations into one-click actions. It is a powerful tool with vast automation capabilities, yet it is easy to configure and so intuitive to use. With all of this, Adaxes is possibly the best method to delegate and automate Exchange tasks.
