Using Web Forms for Provisioning into Active Directory
Configuring web forms for provisioning into Active Directory is useful to save your team time. Your team can use these forms themselves or delegate to others with role-based security. All fields on the form are completely configurable. PeoplePlatform includes sample forms that can be duplicated and configured to your liking.
Relatively simple forms with dropdowns, validation, and input masks upon submission can expand into many more attributes in Active Directory and affect many results in the provisioning process. For example, if a user selects a location on a provisioning form that might affect the target OU, group membership, as well as all of the users’ address attributes in Active Directory.
PeoplePlatform allows you to configure business rules and output mappings to make this happen.
Bulk Provisioning into Active Directory
Bulk provisioning into Active Directory is useful for ensuring your directory is always up to date with other systems– especially systems of record. You can define how inputs come from your data source and how that data is transformed into users, groups, contacts, and computers in Active Directory. Schedule bulk jobs to occur with whatever frequency you want. Be notified as much or as little as you’d like including robust exception notifications.
Provisioning isn’t Always About Creating Things
Whether provisioning with single entries or in bulk, it’s not always about creating things. Bulk processes especially must handle duplicates. Define what constitutes a duplicate and how it’s handled by PeoplePlatform. Options include updating the record (very useful for bulk processes), ignoring it, or always creating a unique object. You can take control of your processes.
