I was wondering if there is a way to add check boxes that correspond to custom commands. Ie if I as the administrator want to give another user the ability to create users and they know what groups to add them to, could I provide them with check boxes that run the custom commands?

The requester would fill out the form and at the bottom there are check boxes that allow to enable Exchange, enable Lync, or add to specific groups. All this would be avaliable from the new user form.

You would need to use the custom boolean values with friendly names then have a business rule trigger after user creation.

After you rename your attributes, you would need to add those attributes to the user creation form on the appropriate web interface.

You could also trigger on user update to disable things if they are unchecked, etc.

This should get you started, I'm sure Support will chime in with lots of awesome screenshots and steps laid out.


Hello Tony,

Yes, there is. As polley well noted, you can use boolean custom attributes provided by Adaxes. There are 25 of them (named CustomAttributeBoolean1 through CustomAttributeBoolean25). Such attributes are not stored in AD, but you can use them the same as any other attributes of AD objects. When adding fields for the attributes to forms for creating or editing users, you can select to display them as checkboxes. A ticked checkbox corresponds to the True value.

Then, you can create Business Rules triggered after creating/updating a user that would automatically perform certain actions if a certain boolean attribute is set to True. Finally, you can give the custom attributes your own names.

For information on how to add attributes to forms for creating or editing users, see step 6 in the following tutorial: http://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInte ... tomization.

For an example of a Business Rule that adds a user to groups based on certain conditions, have a look at the following tutorial: http://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_Automat ... rtment.htm. You can use it as a guide.

For information on how to display attributes using custom names, see the following help article: http://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.Mana ... Names.html.
