Hello

I try to create a scheduled task that checks every minute for locked out users and sends a mail if there is any locked out users.

It works fine but it sends a mail notification every minute, because i dont know how to stop it.

I disabled it for the moment.

I also tried an anti-spam script that was recently posted here. I think this worked for a day, but it mysteriously stopped working.

Because of this i made two scheduled tasks. Bildschirmfoto 2024-07-08 um 11.01.54.png

Can you help me with this problem?

As you might see in the screenshot, i am not well experienced.

Hello,

The best way would be to schedule a built-in report, Locked out users. By default, it is located in container Reports\All Reports\users\Account Status. For details on how to schedule reports, see https://www.adaxes.com/help/ScheduleReports. This way, you will have a single email for all the existing locked out user accounts instead of a separate email per account. Also, you can confugre the report to be delivered only if it is not empty.

If this is not what you need, please, describe the desired behavior in all the possible details with live examples.

Hello

Here you can see the Configuration and the Activity scope.

Some things are in german.

"GrpAdaxesBenutzer" = "GrpAdaxesUsers", it is a group with every user in the company.

Hello,

Your configuration is incorrect. Make sure to configure the task exactly as in our screenshot above. The only thing you need to change is the user in the Activity Scope. Pay attention that it must be a single user, not members of a group. Otherwise, you will receive multiple emails.

Hello

Oh i think there was a misunderstanding. Sorry, i am in the wrong.

I tried to get a notifcation for an entire group, not just one single user. So if someone in that group gets locked out, i get one single message.

Is that possible.

Sorry for the inconvinience.

Hello,

There is no easy way to do that. It can only be done via a PowerShell script that will iterate through the members and check their status. Also, marking like in our screenshot will also be required. Unfortunately, we do not have such a script in our repository.

My Help Desk users can unlock accounts one at a time under user management, Unlock Account. However, under the "Locked out Users" on the Home Page, there is no option to select multiple users to unlock- the check boxs are not visible.
