With Active Directory Users and Computers, I can add group members by copying a list of usernames and pasting them into the Add Members dialog box. This is very quick and easy. How can I do this with Adaxes? It seems that I can only add one member at a time.

Hello,

It is a popular request among our customers, but currently such functionality is not available. As a workaround, you can use the following script from our repository http://www.adaxes.com/script-repository ... k-s371.htm. It adds users specified in a certain attribute of a group to members of that group. Users can be identified by their usernames (SAMAccountNames), separated by commas. As for the property that you can use, we suggest using one of Adaxes custom attributes, for example, CustomAtrributeText1. Such attributes are not stored in AD, but can be used the same as any other attributes of AD objects.

For information on how to add the attribute to the form for creating or editing groups, see the following tutorial: http://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInte ... diting.htm. For information on how to change the name under which the property appears everywhere in Adaxes, see the following help article: http://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.Mana ... Names.html.

I have the ADD TO GROUP operation in my OTHER drop down menu. I can use search or browse to an OU, select multiple users that I want, select ADD TO GROUP operation from the list and select the group I want them all to be added to.

Would that help you?
