Hello,

Yes, it is possible. For examples, have a look at the following SDK article: https://adaxes.com/sdk/?SampleScripts.CreatingUserAccounts.html.

This would work for generating the user, but do we have a way to generate the request via sdk? in order to keep the approval for the request via frontend and then execute the creation of user process automatically as now.

Basically I would like to replace the interaction on the front end to generate the request by a process on backend to generate the ticket and keep it transparent for the approver.

Hello,

Could you, please, specify what exactly you mean by generate the request on backend and generate the ticket? Where should values for properties of the new user be taken? A live example of the desired workflow with all the steps/details would be very helpful.

Sorry, I would try to be more specific. Now I'm filling a form to create a new user and after that the process is executed automatically as expected.

Basically, I'm trying to replace the filling of the form via web by other way. So, One idea I'm thinking on is calling the automation process of create user by an API call where I can share the parameters that I'm now shraring in the web form.

Hello,

Sorry for the confusion, but we are not sure we understand the desired process. If you are missing specific properties on the Web Interface form for user creation, you can modify it as described in the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_WebInterfaceCustomization_CustomizeFormsForUserCreationAndEditing.htm.

If you want to create users via a script and then Adaxes should automatically perform specific actions and populate property values, you can use the script we referenced. In the script, you will just enter basic property values (e.g. Name, Department) and the rest will be done by Business Rules. For details on automating user provisioning, have a look at the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_AutomatingDailyTasks_AutomateUserProvisioning.htm.

If neither of the approaches meets your needs, please, describe the desired workflow step-by-step in all the possible details.

Hi jcvertiz_stk,

In our situation we use a sepearte ticket system that I wanted to tie into Adaxes for user joiner and leaver. In the end I built a small API in powershell that would accept post requests and then used the Adaxes powershell module to create a basic user and then called a custom commands from powershell (see link below).

http://www.adaxes.com/sdk/ManagingCustomCommands.html

Hope this helps.

Has anyone used the Salesforce APIs to create and modify users accounts? Can they be used in Adaxes? We have setup SAML SSO to connect to Salesforce and want to set it up so that Adaxes creates and disables the accounts in Saleforce. Thanks for any input

We are using Adaxes 3.3.8507 to create users, with patterns and rules etc, from the Web page. Only users of our Help Desk can do this and we don't require ... a number of different forms that would generate requests. The property patterns etc are very useful.
