Hello

We're looking for a product that will meet our AD account provisioning needs, so we decided to test ADManager Plus.

I installed the trial, and tried to find the following functionality, but have not been very successful:

1. Configure validation rules on certain AD attributes, for example we need the Employee ID to have a fixed length of 6 digits.
2. Prefill AD attributes from (or validate them against) external data sources, e.g. the HR database.

Is it actually possible to extend the functionality of ADManager with custom code? Plugins?

I also found the client interface doesn't work well with IE11. 

Thanks
Anatolii

update: removed the "approver" workflow role request, as I've found it.

Hi Anatolii,

Please find the answers inline,

1. Configure validation rules on certain AD attributes, for example we need the Employee ID to have a fixed length of 6 digits.
Answer: we can make changes to the Db to restrict this. Please reach us through support@admanagerplus.com to assist you over a remote session.

2. Prefill AD attributes from (or validate them against) external data sources, e.g. the HR database.
Answer: The feature is currently not yet included in our roadmap. Currently, we are working on fetching data from an external data source (Oracle DB) for management actions. This feature will be implemented in upcoming versions of ADManager.

3. Extend the workflows to include an "Approver" role (someone who validates and approves/rejects the change by clicking on some link received by email). The workflow would look like Requester -> Executor -> Approver -> Active Directory.
Answer: Under Workflow tab-->Business workflow you can choose the Roles that has to be present before passing the request to AD. You can choose the members to be included as Approvers and Executors. A notification email can be sent with ADManager Plus URL so the technicians can log in to the product and approve or execute the request.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your information.

Can I ask a few more, please:

1. Making changes to the DB -> is this going to be a supported scenario? I mean, any such changes to the DB will not be affected by future software updates?

4. How about a general validation just before submitting the create/modify action? Like checking if the combination of entered values in some AD attributes is a valid one or not. We use a bunch of extendedAttributes, and only some values are valid in combination with others. I saw the "Creation Rules" feature, but I wish there was a "Validation Rules" one as well.

5. For the "Creation Rules", in the list of selected fields, there's no "Employee Number". Any reason for that?

6. Is IE11 a supported browser?

Thanks
Anatolii
