I was wondering if it'd be possible to incorporate a property pattern rule for creating groups in specific containers.

For example, say I have a container called Random. All groups under container Random are required to be named "Random - [a-zA-Z]". Basically, forcing the group name to begin with the container name it lives under in order to be created there. So I could reuse this rule under containers like Awesome and Tubular, and the groups created under these containers would be named accordingly.

Thanks!

Hello,

There are multiple ways on how to implement what you need in Adaxes.

First of all, you can create multiple Property Patterns and make each one effective only for a specific OU. But that's not the best way, I think.

I suggest you define a Business Rule that will be executed before creation of Groups and modify the group name based on the parent Organizational Unit.
For details, see Validate/Modify User Input Using a Script.

If you have any difficulties with the script, just let me know and we'll help you to implement it.
