Creating OU In AD through Saviynt

Hi,

We have a requirement to create OU from Saviynt in AD. It seems this is not currently supported via the AD connector. It was however suggested that it can be done using Windows PS connector. I did not find any documentation that explains how to create OU using this connector.  Please let me know if this can be done using Windows PS connector.

Creation of OUs using AD connector is possible

Please refer below link

https://docs.saviyntcloud.com/bundle/AD-v231/page/Content/Configuring-the-Integration-for-Importing-...

Below are the high level steps involved in this process

  1. Configure AD connection with required attributes like Org_Base, CreateOrgJSON, UpdateOrgJSON etc 
  2. Configure Organization Rule (Create/Update) - Because organization provision will trigger only based on rules(Unlike groups provision)
  3. Create/Update Organization in Saviynt (UI/API/Upload)
  4. A task will be created to provision the organization which will be picked and provisioned by WSRetry Job

You can use REST connector for Win PS Script to be executed and use OU creation steps inside .ps1 script

I would sggest you to get closer to your support & DevOps team to check if the hostname is resolved from backend, and make sure DNS resolver is happening.

My question is more on establishing connectivity with AD. Right now, the Windows VM I am trying to Run the script on is throwing below error. The DC/AD is not on this VM and this is a standalone VM.

This is connectivity issue from VM to DC. Check with your IT/network team
