Is it possible to script having users added (or removed) from a Security Group based on another AD Attribute?

I have found ways to do this in Powershell (something like):
# Get the ad cmdlets imported
import-module ActiveDirectory
# Clear all current members of NoInternet Group
get-adgroupmember No_Internet_GG | %{remove-adgroupmember No_Internet_GG $_.SamAccountName -Confirm:$false}
# Add all No Internet users to a Group
get-aduser -filter{city -like "No Internetville"} | %{Add-ADGroupMember No_Internet_GG $_.SamAccountName}

but I wanted to see if this is possible with an Adaxes script.

For instance, if a user has a location AD attribute of CA, I want them added to the LOCATION_CA AD security group. If they relocate to CO, I want them to be removed from the LOCATION_CA group and added to the LOCATION_CO group. The script would then run in a timed fashion, weekly. Alternatively, the script could just delete all members of the LOCATION_CA group on a weekly basis and then re-populate it based on the location AD attribute.

Or should I just utilize the PS script and just run it through Adaxes on a timed fashion?

I'm trying to automate adding users who are enrolled in MFA to an AD group. The scripts I found elsewhere here that do not work so I believe they may have been written against a prior Adaxes version or referencing a report that does not meet our needs.

Hallo! a very interesting feature would be the capability for a user to add herself to a security group directly from inside the Self service interface, as it is already possible for distribution lists. How can be implemented this? regards, Giovanni
