Good Afternoon,

Currently as far as I can tell when defining a new user we are forced to select a location for a newly created user before defining information like the username, company field, etc. Currently I am trying to automate the movement process by tying it with the users defined Company field.

i.e. User's company field is defined as "Company A" in the website so when the system created the user I can then define which OU I would like the account to move to.

Is there a way to bypass that first step? If not, is there a better way of applying this sort of functionality?

Hello Josh,

Actually, the way you are planning to do this is, probably, the best way. To bypass the first step, you need to specify a default container where all new users will be created before being moved to the appropriate OU. To do this:

  1. On the computer where your Web Interface is installed, launch the Web Interface Customization tool.
  2. In the Interface type drop-own list, select the appropriate Web Interface type.
  3. Click Configure Home Page Actions.
  4. Double-click the Home Page Action that is used to create new users.
  5. Switch to the Target Container tab.
  6. Select the Select specific AD container or OU by default option.
  7. In the Container DN field, select the OU or container that you want to be selected by default.
  8. Enable the Always use this OU/container option.
  9. Click OK 2 times.

Thank you for the reply, got me pointed in the right direction.
