As part of our HR onboarding process, they need to specify non-AD integrated software requirements. Is there a way to have a customised field on the form that when ticked or selected, would trigger an email to the appropriate administrator to create the account for the new starter?

My thought process was that we could set an extended attribute for the required software, set a business rule to email the administrator to create the account in the application and then have the rule clear the attribute.

The only catch here is that I don't want the field to show as "ExtensionAttribute 5" for example in the form - would prefer it to say the name of the software and have it linked to a particular field in AD.

Hello,

Is there a way to have a customised field on the form that when ticked or selected, would trigger an email to the appropriate administrator to create the account for the new starter?

You can use one of Adaxes custom Boolean attributes (e.g. CustomAttributeBoolean1). The attributes will be displayed on the Web Interface forms as checkboxes. For details on how to manage the forms, have a look at the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInterfaceCustomization_CustomizeFormsForUserCreationAndEditing.htm.

My thought process was that we could set an extended attribute for the required software, set a business rule to email the administrator to create the account in the application and then have the rule clear the attribute.

The approach is correct. If you use an Adaxes custom Boolean attribute (e.g. CustomAttributeBoolean1), the Business Rule will look like the following: image.png

would prefer it to say the name of the software

For information on how to customize property display names, have a look at the following help article: https://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.ManageActiveDirectory.EditFriendlyNames.html.
