Active Directory Event Filter

Connect iPaaS enables you to select specific events and filter out the rest using certain attributes of the incoming Active Directory event. This ability allows selective processing of the events of interest.

Event Filters for Active Directory

Figure 1. Event Filtering for Active Directory on Connect iPaaS

In the example shown in Figure 1, the workflow will be triggered only when the CN (Common Name) will contain the keyword 'Apurv' and the Country Code Equals 'IN' OR Employee ID Equals 'RMQ-E14'.

The event filters allows you to choose the attributes of the incoming trigger event to define the selection criteria of events to process. In case of Active Directory, the trigger events can be filtered based on the following attributes:

  • CN - Common name of the User/group/list in AD
  • CO - Country/region where the user is located
  • Country Code - Code of the country where the user is located. It also specifies the users language of choice
  • Department - Name of the department where the user works
  • Department Number - Helps in identifying the department within an organization
  • Distinguished Name - Unique identifier for the entry in the directory
  • Employee ID - ID of an employee
  • Employee Type - Job Category for an employee
  • Given Name - First name of the user
  • Mail - Email address of the user
  • Mail Nickname - Nickname we assign to the user
  • Name - Name of the entry created in directory
  • Object class - A list of classes from which this class is derived.
  • Physical Delivery office - Office location of user's business
  • Proxy Addresses - An address by which a foreign mail system recognizes Microsoft Exchange Server recipient object
  • SAM Account Name - Log in name that supports previous versions of Windows servers and clients.
  • SN - Surname of the user.
  • Title - The user's formal job title. For example, Senior Programmer.
