Automatically De-provisioning users in Automic

    Does anyone know of a way or have a workflow currently that will automatically de-provision users in Automic?  The use case behind this is a customer having an audit requirement to remove users access from Automic immediately upon employee separation.  All users are LDAP enabled.

    You could build a tool the ApplicationInterface and run the tool as part of the Exit Workflow. Or use the RemoveObject Script function to remove the User Object.

    Do they understand that if they revoke the persons ability to log on via active directory, then they have already revoked that persons ability to log into Automic?  If they still want the added security of also altering Automic's internal access rules, I would suggest turning off the USER object's "user is active" setting instead of deleting the user.  If you delete the USER object, then all Automic history associated with that user will be displayed as "user unknown".  (I don't know if this can be done from the Automic script language.)

    We used Jennifer's approach.. We have a file event that looks for a file that contains who needs to be deleted/updated.  When the event gets triggered it fires off a process flow that reads the file and then runs the remove_object script removing that person from Automic.
