I need to create a lot of groups that have similar dynamic membership rules.


  • Marketing group that adds users if they are enabled and if customAttribute10 is "14"
  • Sales group that adds users if they are enabled and if customAttribute10 is "18"
  • Admin group that adds users if they are enabled and if customAttribute10 is "42"

but I need to do this for about 100 groups, and I'd like to copy all the other settings and attributes between them.

So is there a way to do this in bulk?

It is only possible to create rule-based groups in bulk via a script. The following SDK articles should be helpful:



For your information, Adaxes custom attributes (e.g. CustomAttributeText1) cannot be used in membership criteria for rule based groups. This behavior is by design and cannot be changed. As such, if customAttribute10 is an Adaxes custom attribute, the only approach you can use is via business rules or scheduled tasks. For details, have a look at section Centralized automation of the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/help/AddUsersToGroupsByDepartment/#centralized.

Using this built in function: There is no option to change the domain on the user account, however this is not the domain we use for UPN. However after creating a user, you can change it but trying to avoid going back into the object.
