Create a ActiveDirectory user automatically via a BPMN Workflow Engine

Abstract: Did you ever wish to create an active directory (e.g exchange) user automatically based on data from a Human Resources Management System (HRMS)?

Then you should check out Jenkins (a open source automation server) and integrate the PowerShell plugin (as already mentioned here). Then use the RESTful API from Jenkins and let a BPMN Workflow Engine (like Activiti) trigger that. Additional to that you could connect your Human Resources Management System (HRMS) to the BPMN Workflow Engine. Via that construct it would be possible to automatically create a user based on the HRMS for example inside Microsoft Exchange (via the Jenkins Powershell integration).


Here are two links (1 & 2) which describe how to integrate powershell inside Jenkins.


A blog reader just mentioned by email that the same could be done via CruiseControl. So if you need an alternative solution pick that, but Jenkins would be the better solution I think.
