Hi All,

I was following the following documentation


However I cannot work out how to make it so that a user can only add themselves to a distribution group?

I have tried adding the Business rule 'if the initiator isnot the %initiator%' however this stops the user adding themselves.

In an ideal world I want the setup to be the owner of the group can add anyone, but users can only add themselves.

Any help would be great.

Many Thanks

Unfortunately, there is no possibility to grant the permissions the way you need. It is only possible to grant the permissions to modify the Member property of the group, not limit the members that can be added. The approach with a Business Rule triggering Before adding a member to a group is exactly what you need. In the rule, you will need to use two conditions to check whether a user is adding themselves to the group and whether the initiator is the owner of the group. Finally, the Business Rule will look like the following: image.png


Thank you very much that business rule worked perfectly

I would like users to use Adaxes to add themselves or others to a group, but instead of it just working, it has to go thru an approval process and be approved by the group owner before they are added. Thanks!

We have RBAC groups inside an OU. We would like to restrict users from being added to multiple RBAC groups at a time. For example: RBAC Roles OU Sales RBAC Group ... groups outside of this OU structure though. What's the best way to achieve this? Thanks
