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.

I am trying to see if I can implement this in Adaxes somehow to support role-based provisioning to external apps (using appropriate Powershell scripts) but struggling to work ... to invest in a full-blown role-based provisioning platform (would rather not!).

Currently, when I disable a user account in Adaxes, the group memberships of the user remain intact. I'd like to automate the removal of group memberships such as distribution ... a list of groups/DL that the user was previously in and removed from. Thanks!

We'll be updating over 14K accounts with data (adding data to a virtual attribute) using a scheduled task but I don't want the updates to trigger Business Rules and flood the Adaxes log with entries. Is there an easy way to prevent this?
