Deletion Handling
Users can be deleted as soon as they no longer exist in the data source, but in ADConnector you can also configure the deletion process to take place at a later point in time. The user accounts can be de-activated before deleted and the deletion can include user folders if specified. Deleted and de-activated users will be created or re-activated if included in the data source again.
Double User Handling
In any organisation, may it be a company, school or governmental department, there are always users sharing the same name as another user. ADConnector allows you to handle the naming of these double named users in perfection with your own definitions. ADConnector provides a default rule which will add a sequential number at the end of the user names, if no other profile has been defined. However, you can easily configure exactly how your users should be named by defining as many profiles as wanted. For example the users can be named by only using the first 3 letters of the first name in combination with the last name, or initials or middle name combined with the first- and last name etc.
User Folders
Multiple folders can be created with ADConnector. Each folder can be configured to be created for all users in the data source or for users meeting specific conditions. The folder settings include specifying the path and permissions for the folder and how to manage the folder if the user is deleted.
Group Memberships
Multiple groups can be created with ADConnector and memberships to the groups can be set for all users in the data source or for users meeting specific conditions. The groups can be of different types and scope, have a mail alias set or not, multiple folders can be created for each group, and several options are provided for the deletion handling.
Exchange Profiles
Multiple Exchange Profiles can be created with ADConnector. Each profile can be configured to be created for all users in the data source or for users meeting specific conditions. Both mailboxes and mail forwardings to personal email addresses can be configured and detailed options can be configured for each mailbox.

Logs
Logs are generated during the runtime of the Core Automation Process and these can be stored for later access to review the progress and result of each run. The logs are easily accessed for each instance and are helpful tools to find out problems occurred during runtime, for example if something was wrong with the configuration.
Event Handling
A strong feature of ADConnector is the ability to run your own command triggered by almost any event during the runtime of the Core Automation Process. You have, just to mention a few examples, the possibility to fetch the data source from a remote location before running the instance, create user accounts in external systems, and if you use a third party archive solution for your e-mails, where another mailbox should be added to your existing Outlook-configuration, you can specify a command to do this dynamically for you.
Core Automation Process
Data Source
The data source which contains your users and their data. The source can be a CSV file or a table from your SQL database or a ODBC connection. The only requirements for each user are that they have a name and a unique identifier. In addition, this file might include the department or class the user belongs to, location, address information, telephone numbers, private email address, passwords to be generated on user creation and more.
Variables
The data in the data source are used to create variables which will be used to configure the users. The data will be dynamically assigned to the users during runtime based on these variables and matched with the users’ unique identifier.
Filters
Filters can be created to include or exclude certain users from the data source, in case not all users should be managed according to the configuration.
Text Templates
Variables can also be created by adding text templates to the configurations. Any text can be added and given a name, which then can be used in the configuration in the same way as the variables created from the data source. Text templates can be useful for example to remove the need of re-writing the same text in multiple places or to only have to make changes to a text in one place when the variable will make sure the changes are made everywhere the variable is in use.
Replacements
Text replacements can be used to replace characters or text from the data source with other characters or text of your choice, for example replacing special characters such as ü, ö and à with u, o and a.
OU Structure
The Organisational Unit structure for your users in Active Directory can be created from the variables in the data source. In this way the users working for the same department or the students in the same class, or any other structure of your choice, can be created and managed in the same organisational units.
Base OU
User Settings
Almost any attribute in Active Directory can be configured for each user. The attributes can be configured dynamically with the variables from the data source, text templates, system variables provided, or with static texts. The Configuration Tool allows the drag and drop of variables to make the configuration as easy as possible.
Password Settings
All users are created with a password. The password can either be set by using the default password profile provided by ADConnector or by creating your own profiles where different passwords can be set for users meeting specific conditions. The passwords can be dynamically or statically created and multiple options can be selected to meet the password rules of your organisation.
