When a new user is created by HR, I would like to send an e-mail to the manager of the new created user.
I've created a webform for managers to edit some properties for a user.

It would be nice if the e-mail notification contains a link to the weform for the managers, and automatically the new user is selected.

Is this possible in an e-mail notification?

Kind regards.

Yes, it is possible using a Business Rule triggering After Creating a User and a PowerShell script. The script will form the URL based on the new user data and the URL to the Home Page Action.
i. Getting the Home Page Action URL

  1. Sign in to the Web interface.
  2. On the Home page, click the Modify User action you need.
  3. Copy the URL from the browser (e.g. http://example.com/AdaxesAdmin/HomeActi ... c8f4118c49)

ii. Creating the Business Rule

  1. Launch Adaxes Administration Console.

  2. Right-click your Adaxes service node, navigate to New and click Business Rule.

  3. On step 2 of the Create Business Rule wizard, select User Object type.

  4. Select After Creating a User and click Next.

  5. Click Add Action.

  6. Select Run a program or PowerShell script.

     $homePageActionUrl = "http://example.com/AdaxesAdmin/HomeAction.aspx?id=366c3fb2-f754-450c-a27a-f8c8f4118c49"
     # E-mail settings
     $to = "%adm-ManagerEmail%" # TODO: modify me
     $subject = "MySubject" # TODO: modify me
     $htmlTemplate = "
     <h2>Hello %adm-ManagerFullName%,</h2><br/>
     <a href='$homePageActionUrl`&path={0}'>Click to modify %fullname%</a>
     <hr /><p><i>Please do not reply to this e-mail, it has been sent to you for notification purposes only.</i></p>" # TODO: modify me
     # Build HTML
     $path = [System.Web.HttpUtility]::UrlEncode($Context.TargetObject.AdsPath)
     $html = [System.String]::Format($htmlTemplate, $path)
     # Send mail
     $Context.SendMail($to, $subject, $NULL, $html)

  7. Paste the below script into the Script field.
    In the script, the $homePageActionUrl variable specifies the URL to your Home Page Action. Replace the variable value in the script with the one you copied on step 3 of the Getting the Home Page Action URL section.

  8. Enter a short description and click OK.

  9. Click Next and finish creating the Business Rule.
