Hello,

Yes, it is possible. You can use the below script in a business rule triggering After adding a member to a group.

$member = $Context.BindToObject("Adaxes://%member%")

$member.Put("extensionAttribute5", "%name%")
$member.SetInfo()

Hello,

thank you for the quick answer. In the first try it all worked, extensionAttribute5 was changed. I tried again, put the user in another team, but nothing changed. extensionAttribute5 has still the value from the first try.

Hello,

Make sure that the Activity Scope of the business rule includes all the groups you need.

Hello, after several tries i know what is wrong. In my first try i added the user to a security group. Everything worked fine. If i add the user to a distribution group, nothing happens. What changes are necessary for distribution groups?

Hello,

No changes are required. The workflow does not depend on the group type. You just need to include the group into the activity scope of the business rule.

Hello,

Do you actually see the 912-IT group in Adaxes? How exactly do you add members to the group? Please, provide all the steps you take with screenshots. You can post the screenshots here or send to us at support@adaxes.com.
