Active Directory Users

The Active Directory Automated Task retrieves a list of users, including those who have been recently added, modified or deleted in Active Directory.

A summary of the number of users catalogued and their status is displayed in the Automated Task's More Information section in the Dashboard's Tasks South-pane, with more detailed information available through the Active Directory Users Report. This report is available in an HTML or CSV format with the option to extract the data via an List Active Directory Users API call.

Active Directory Users Automated Tasks may be added to a site to query the Primary Domain Controller, or on specific devices where the network has more than one Domain Controller.

After configuration, an Active Directory Users Query Automated Task is added which runs daily at midnight when configured at the Site level, or on the schedule selected for the Device level task, uploading the user account details to the Dashboard where it is subsequently available in the Active Directory Users Report.
