Applying the Policy Object

You can apply the Policy Object by using the Enforce Policy page in the New Provisioning Policy Object Wizard, or you can complete the wizard and then use the Enforce Policy command on the domain, OU, or Managed Unit where you want to apply the policy.

For more information on how to apply a Policy Object, see Applying Policy Objects and Managing policy scope.

Default creation options for Exchange mailboxes

In the wizard for creating user accounts, whether in the Active Roles Console or Web Interface, the Create an Exchange mailbox option is selected by default, causing the user mailbox to be created upon creation of a user account. This behavior can be changed by applying an appropriately crafted policy of the Exchange Mailbox AutoProvisioning category.

A policy can be configured so that the Create an Exchange mailbox option is not selected by default but the administrator who uses the wizard to create a user account can select that option if necessary. It is also possible to configure a policy that forces the Create an Exchange mailbox option to be selected.

To set default creation options for Exchange mailboxes

  1. Create a Policy Object containing an Exchange Mailbox AutoProvisioning policy.

  2. Open the Properties dialog for the Policy Object you created.

  3. On the Policies tab in the Properties dialog, double-click the Exchange Mailbox AutoProvisioning policy entry.

  4. On the Mailbox Creation tab in the Exchange Mailbox AutoProvisioning Policy Properties dialog, set policy options as appropriate for your situation:

    • Create the user mailbox by default: Determines whether the Create an Exchange mailbox option is selected by default in the wizard for creating user accounts. If you want user mailboxes not to be created by default, clear this policy option.

    • Enforce creation of the mailbox: Causes the Create anExchange mailbox option to be selected and unavailable so that the administrator who creates a user account cannot clear that option.

  5. Click OK to close the dialogs you opened.

  6. Apply the Policy Object to the scope (domains, containers, or Managed Units) where you want this policy to be in effect.

AutoProvisioning in SaaS products

Policies of this category are intended to automate the provisioning of users and groups in the selected SaaS products using Starling Connectors.

You can specify the Starling Connect connectors to be validated for the users or groups for which the policy is applied.

How the AutoProvisioning in SaaS products policy works

Active Roles relies on this policy during user creation to provision the users for connected systems based on the registered Starling Connectors that are selected based on the configured policy.
