To enable the account, use the following activities in the workflow:

  1. Authenticate with password or any 2FA procedure such as Starling and Radius.

    NOTE: In the activity settings, you must select Authenticate users with disabled accounts check box to unlock and re-enable the disabled user accounts.

    NOTE: In the activity settings, you must select Enable user accounts disabled by forced enrollment check box to unlock and re-enable the disabled user accounts disabled through forced enrollment. If you do not select the check box, all the disabled user accounts in the organization are enabled.
  4. Restart workflow if error occurs.
