Hi

Are there any plans to allow the creation of approval requests via PowerShell? My client has a requirement to allow staff to request new Teams, but the Team needs to follow a strict naming convention. When the user submits the request for a new group, the first task is a script to rename the group but the approval email doesn't include the new name, only what the staff member has entered. They do use the approval emails for other tasks though and aren't at a stage to have these turned off just yet. Having the ability to create the approval programatically, with an option to send the email or not would be really useful as there could be a balance of both automated approval emails and not as required.

Thanks

Matt

Hello Matt,

Are there any plans to allow the creation of approval requests via PowerShell?

It has always been possible to submit an operation for approval using a PowerShell script. For details, see https://adaxes.com/sdk/ExecuteScriptContextClass/#SubmitForApproval_details.

When the user submits the request for a new group, the first task is a script to rename the group but the approval email doesn't include the new name, only what the staff member has entered.

You need to make sure that your business rules are properly ordered (renaming before approval) and the renaming is performed correctly. For the order settings, have a look at the following help article: https://www.adaxes.com/help/BusinessRuleExecutionOrder. As for the renaming, make sure that it is done using method SetModifiedPropertyValue in a PowerShell script.

Thank you, I guess the SubmitForApproval command will always send an email to the approvers?

The order is correct and I am using the SetModifiedPropertyValue method, but as you can see, the old group name still appears in the approval emails on the Create line, though the new name does indeed show as the Group Name. image.png

Hello,

It will submit the corresponding operation for approval and the specified approvers will receive an email notification.

as you can see, the old group name still appears in the approval emails on the Create line, though the new name does indeed show as the Group Name.

With just a single screenshot, it not possible to check the entire workflow. Please, provide screenshot of all the settings including scripts in TXT format. Also, please, provide a screenshot of the execution log for the create Adaxes test 7 group operation. You can post the details here or send to us at support@adaxes.com.

Is there any way to add an additional approver after the approval request as been created, and would they still receive an automated email?

I'll send the process through to the support team shortly.

Thank you as always.

Hello Matt,

Yes, it is possible using a script. For an example, see https://www.adaxes.com/script-repository/add-approvers-to-approval-requests-s124.htm.

Alternatively, you can do it manually in the Administration console.

image I've realised what I was doing wrong here, I was only setting the 'cn' attribute in the script, I needed to set the 'name' attribute too.

Thanks for all your help.
