Steps for configuring a Notification Distribution policy

Rule-based AutoProvisioning and Deprovisioning > Policy configuration tasks > Notification Distribution > Steps for configuring a Notification Distribution policy

To configure a Notification Distribution policy

  1. On the Policy to Configure page, select Notification Distribution Policy, and then click Next.
  2. On the Notification Recipients and Message page, do the following, and then click Next:
    • Click the button next to Notification recipients, and select one or more e-mail recipients.
    • In Message Subject, type the subject of the message that the specified recipients will receive upon a request to perform a deprovisioning operation.
    • Under Message Body, type any information regarding the deprovisioning operation.
  3. On the Outgoing Mail Server page, select the e-mail configuration you want the policy to use. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) list, click the appropriate mail settings.
  4. If you want to view or modify the selected mail settings, click Settings, and use the Mail Setup tab (see Configuring e-mail settings earlier in this chapter).
  5. Click Next.
  6. On the Enforce Policy page, you can specify objects to which this Policy Object is to be applied:
    • Click Add, and use the Select Objects dialog box to locate and select the objects you want.
  7. Click Next, and then click Finish.

Scenario: Sending deprovisioning notification

This scenario describes how to configure a policy so that the administrator is notified of deprovisioning objects in any domain registered with Active Roles (managed domain).

To implement this scenario, you must perform the following actions:

  1. Create the appropriate e-mail configuration.
  2. Create, configure, and apply the Policy Object that defines the appropriate policy.

As a result, upon a request to deprovision an object, such as a user or group, in any managed domain, the administrator receives an e-mail message informing of the deprovisioning request. The message includes the name of the object to deprovision.

The following two sections elaborate on the steps to implement this scenario.

Step 1: Creating the e-mail configuration

Step 1: Creating the e-mail configuration

This scenario assumes that your SMTP server:

  • Runs on the server smtp.mycompany.com
  • Uses the default port number (25)
  • Allows anonymous access
  • Allows non-encrypted connections

Additionally, the service account of the Administration Service is assumed to have a mailbox with the e-mail address of ARSService@mycompany.com.

Create the e-mail configuration by using the Active Roles console:

  1. In the console tree, expand Configuration | Server Configuration, right-click Mail Configuration, and then select New | Mail Configuration to start the New Mail Configuration wizard.
  2. Click Next.
  3. In Name, type Deprovisioning Notification Distribution.
  4. Click Next.
  5. In Outgoing mail server (SMTP), type smtp.mycompany.com.
  6. In Sender e-mail address, type the e-mail address of the service account: ARSService@mycompany.com.
  7. In Name (used in the From field), type Active Roles.
  8. Click Next, and then click Finish.

Step 2: Creating, configuring, and applying the Policy Object

Rule-based AutoProvisioning and Deprovisioning > Policy configuration tasks > Notification Distribution > Step 2: Creating, configuring, and applying the Policy Object
Step 2: Creating, configuring, and applying the Policy Object

You can create, configure, and apply the Policy Object you need by using the New Deprovisioning Policy Object wizard. For information about the wizard, see Creating a Policy Object in the Policy Object management tasks section earlier in this chapter.

To configure the policy, click Notification Distribution on the Select Policy Type page of the wizard. Then, click Next.

On the Notification Recipients and Message page, click the button next to the Notification recipients box to display the Deprovisioning Notification Recipients dialog box. In that dialog box, type the administrator’s e-mail address, such as administrator@mydomain.com, and then click OK.

Then, customize the message subject and the message body as necessary. For example, you might enter the following subject and body:

Message subject

Deprovisioning of %<objectClass> ’%<name>’ Requested

Message body

Deprovisioning of %<objectClass> ’%<name>’ is in progress. Please take any additional deprovisioning actions, if necessary, to complete the deprovisioning of that %<objectClass>.

This notification was generated automatically by Active Roles according to corporate deprovisioning rules.

Click Next to display the Outgoing Mail Server page.

From the list in the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, select Deprovisioning Notification Distribution—the e-mail configuration you created in Step 1. Then, click Next to display the Enforce Policy page.

Add the Active Directory folder to the list on the Enforce Policy page:

  1. Click the Add button to display the Select Objects window.
  2. In the Select Objects window, click the Browse button to display the Browse for Container dialog box.
  3. In the Browse for Container dialog box, click Active Directory, and then click OK.
  4. From the upper list in the Select Objects window, select Active Directory.
  5. Click Add, and then click OK to close the Select Objects window.

Click Next, and then click Finish to close the wizard.

You can also use the Enforce Policy command on the Active Directory folder in the console tree to apply the policy to that folder. For more information on how to apply a Policy Object, see Applying Policy Objects and Managing policy scope earlier in this chapter.
