Azure AD Actions

Actions are the operations (or API operations) that will take place as a result of the trigger defined in the upstream application. These actions you can perform on Azure AD by simple drag-drop and data mapping of elements and values from the trigger, derived values using formulas or desired constant that you may wish to map.

All of the actions that you see below automate what you can do manually on Azure AD.

As shown below, you can manage Azure AD users in response to a trigger event.
