Hi Everyone,

As this is my first time working with AD connector, below are the questions I have:

1. If a user needs to be created in AD through Saviynt, steps to be followed:

a. Create user in Saviynt thoruhg the form

b. Trigger user update rule to trigger createaccountjson and create account in AD(will be used as a user)

c. Run userimport to map the missing fields correctly.

2. If a user to be moved to a different OU ie disabled

a. DisableOUJSON can be triggered to move the account to a different OU.

Hence, for the userIDs in Saviynt we are going to apply operations on AD accounts.

Kindly help me if the above observations are correct.

Hello @shubhamj596 ,

Yes, the steps you mentioned are one way to create a user account in the target application using Saviynt. However, there are multiple ways to achieve this. You can refer to the following documents for detailed information on the process:

Hi Sudesh, 

While going through the guides, I am not able to get the second approach.

Can you please help me with another approach if possible.

Hi @shubhamj596 

As I explained earlier, Saviynt offers various methods for account provisioning. Depending on the requirement, you can also request the accounts from the ARS if the users already exist in Saviynt. Another option is to use a policy(rules) that can provision the accounts
