Hello,

I am having trouble updating adaxes custom attributes when creating a new user with the powershell module, would running the New-AdmUser also trigger an operation succeeded business rule? Here's my example script below.

Import-Module Adaxes

$parentDN = "OU=GroupIDtesting,DC=test,DC=local" $name = "Adaxes8 Name" $firstName = "Adaxes8" $lastName = "Name" $title = "Testing" $EmployeeID = "999199" $MobilePhone = "999-999-9999"

New-AdmUser $name -Path $parentDN -GivenName $firstName -Surname $lastName -SamAccountName "$firstname.$lastname" -DisplayName "$firstName $lastname" -UserPrincipalName "$firstname.$lastname@test.local" -EmployeeID $EmployeeID -MobilePhone $MobilePhone -OtherAttributes @{adm-CustomAttributeText1 = $title }

Hello,

When creating a user, to set values for Adaxes custom attributes and for Business Rules to trigger, the New-AdmUser cmdlet requires specifying the -AdaxesService parameter. Finally, your command should look like the following:

New-AdmUser $name -Path $parentDN -GivenName $firstName -Surname $lastName -SamAccountName "$firstname.$lastname" -DisplayName "$firstName $lastname" -UserPrincipalName "$firstname.$lastname@test.local" -EmployeeID $EmployeeID -MobilePhone $MobilePhone -OtherAttributes @{adm-CustomAttributeText1 = $title } -AdaxesService "adaxeshost.company.com"

I cannot get -AdaxesService to work. As our vanity url, localhost, or IP address. I keep getting the following error.

New-AdmUser : The parameter is incorrect. (Server: test.local) At line:11 char:1

  • New-AdmUser -Name $name -GivenName $firstName -Surname $lastName -Sam ...
  •

Is there a way to grey out the 'Password never expires' option when a admin creates a new user in the Adaxes admin portal? I'm in a closed environment and need to make sure that accounts are not created with this option set. Thanks for any information! -Chad
