Active Directory user provisioning has never been easier than with Web Active Directory’s PeoplePlatform. Provision users via configurable web forms that you can use yourself or delegate to others or in bulk from your data sources.
Using Web Forms for Provisioning Users into Active Directory
Configuring web forms for provisioning users into Active Directory is useful in saving 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 users’ target OU, their group membership, licensing, as well as their address attributes in Active Directory.
PeoplePlatform allows you to configure business rules and output mappings to make this happen.
Bulk Provisioning Users into Active Directory
Bulk provisioning users 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 Active Directory user account data. 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 Users isn’t Always About Creating Users
Whether provisioning users with single entries or in bulk, it’s not always about creating new records. Bulk processes especially must handle duplicates. Define what constitutes a duplicate and how it’s handled by PeoplePlatform. Options include updating the user (beneficial for bulk processes), ignoring it, or always creating a unique user. You can take control of your processes.
