UMRA: sync your active directory with any hr-system11-03-2008
Active Directory user creation is usually a pre-request operation, where a paper form is filled out by a member of HR and brought to operations to create the account. This process usually has a high priority, since the employee needs the user account to work. However, when properties of the employee change or the employee leaves the company, the need to inform operations is far less. A good solution is to (partly) sync your Active Directory directly with the HR-system. UMRA can do this for you:
- Form based user creation displaying employees who will be entering the company between now and 30 days in the future. From there, the form will automatically fill out all naming values which only leaves network resources to be added.
- Form based user disable/deletion displaying employees who have recently left the company. Using UMRA’s engine you can have the user account disabled, the home-directory archives and the mailbox made hidden from the GAL.
- Full-auto sync of user properties to AD. UMRA can sync properties such as names, departments, function titles, and everything else found in the HR-system to Active Directory. This opens up possibilities for intranets where information is up-to-date, helpdesk software which syncs with AD and the Outlook Address List which will always be accurate.
- Full-auto detection or sync of permission changes. If you have a group per department in AD, UMRA can detect if you are still in the correct department group. If not, UMRA can notify you or correct the change automatically.
