Re: Aegis Active Directory Password Expiry workflow

Hi Imranulghar,

This type of question isn't really a technical support question, but
since its not a big workflow I can put together an answer in form of a
demo workflow for you so you can import it into your lab and hopefulyl
get it running ok.

There are a few main points.

#1 The workflow will probably run on a schedule - the Aegis Scheduler
adapter will tell the workflow when to start, possibly once a week.

#2 The only complicated part of this workflow is the LDAP query to
find the users whose passwords will expire in X days. The timeformat
isn't standard but there is an easy powershell command which can be run
in the workflow to calculate the upper and lower time settings of the
LDAP query.

#3 Once we find the users (depending on the method), we then need to
query the user for the email address which we then use to send them the
email. Loop through all users and end.

So the open question would be how do we connect to AD ? Do you have
NetIQ Directory and Resource Monitor - this has an installable Aegis
adapter which can be used to perform the AD connection tasks.

Without the adapter we can use the dsquery Windows Ad commands to handle
this. This will require parsing the screen output of the command but
not a big issue.

I also have specific LDAP activities for AD and a generic LDAP adapter
on the NetIQ Communities site which would also work - although these are
not supported. Technically scripting isn't either but there are a lot
of grey areas!

If you don't have DRA I will do the demo based on the command line
options - I'm on vacation for most of the next week or so but will get
to you after that.
