Is it possible to set the initiator &/ the created user (when doing a user creation) as the sending email adress for a outgoing email from Adaxess?

The use case is that we want to submit tickets to our helpdesk (Jira Servicedesk) and both have them come from the right person and when its a new user, get auto creation of the user account from AdAxess by means of the email thats beeing sent.

Currently its sent from the fixed from address thats setup in settings for the server.

Did search a bit and found Automate an email based on anniversary/birthdate.

Modified it a bit, would this work as a run a powershell script?
The question is if the created users email adress is in the %mail% variable?

$to = "Jira" # TODO: modify me
$smtpServer = "mail.domain.com" # TODO: modify me
$subject = "New user creation" # TODO: modify me
$from = "%mail%" # TODO: modify me
$htmlMessage = "<b>Edit this user to show real name</b><br>And then close the case" # TODO: modify me

if ($from -eq $NULL)
    $Context.LogMessage("The email address for the %mail% is not specified", "Warning")

# Send mail
Send-MailMessage -To $to -From $from -SmtpServer $smtpServer -Body $htmlMessage -BodyAsHtml -Subject $subject

Hello Kaj,

The condition if ($from -eq $NULL) will not work because it is checking a string for being empty. You need to use the following code instead:

if ([System.String]::IsNullOrEmpty($from))

Also, as we can see, the log message that will be added to the execution log contains the %mail% value reference. It will always resolve into an empty value as the message is added only when the target user has no email address. Most probably, you wanted to add the user Full Name to the message. In this case, you need to use value reference %fullname%.

The rest of the script looks correct and should work just fine.
