Hello,

I am attempting to configure a business rule that adjusts an adaxes custom property of a user, upon that user being added/removed from a group. I cannot seem to find the right way to go about this. I have tried setting it up from the group perspective, and using the %adm-memberUserName% to pull the user and my target custom variable I wish to change is %adm-CustomAttributeBoolean20%, but I cannot get anything to interact with or change this variable. I am not sure how to reference a custom variable properly when trying to adjust it based on my criteria above. Can support/anyone help me? What is the proper way to reference custom values so I may manipulate them when scripting in powershell? I apologize if this is in your FAQs or Documentation, I cannot find it. There is plenty on referencing normal values, (like username, office, description, email, etc.) but not so much on custom attributes.

Hello,

Value references work the same for all types of objects and properties. The following article should be helpful: https://www.adaxes.com/help/ValueReferences. At the same time, you need to pay attention what the target object is. In your case, it is a group, not the member being added. The behavior is by design and comes from AD. The thing is that when you add/remove a member from a group, it is the group being updated, not the member. As such, if you need to update a property of a member being added to a group in your business rule, you should have a script like below. In the script:

  • $propertyToUpdate - Specifies the name of the property to update for the member.
  • $propertyValue - Specifies the value to be set for the member property.
$propertyToUpdate = "adm-CustomAttributeBoolean20" # TODO: modify me
$propertyValue = $True # TODO: modify me

# Bind to the member
$member = $Context.BindToObject("Adaxes://%member%")

# Update member
$member.Put($propertyToUpdate, $propertyValue)
$member.SetInfo()
