I'm trying to setup a business rule that will send an email to the user when they are added to a group.

Under the User Object I don't have an option to Launch the rule after the user has been added to a group

Under the Group Object I do have the ability to send an email when a member is added to the group but when I set it to send an email the %mail% variable is looking at the email address on the group, not on the new group member.

Is there a variable I can use or some other way to get the new group member's email address so I can send a notification to it?

Hello Drew,

You need a Business Rule triggered on group objects, because when adding a user to a group, you modify the group, not the user. In particular, you add the user's DN to the Members property of the group.

There are no value references for the email of a new group member, so you will need to send mail using a script. We actually have such a script in our Script Repository. See Notify user of being added to a group.


Thanks for the help!

I am using a Send An Email on create mailbox function. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. The issue seems to be that Adaxes fires the rule too quickly before the Exchange mailbox has been fully created. How do I put a pause into a rule? Like 30 seconds?
