Is it possible to send an email from Adaxes when certain AD objects are modified outside of Adaxes? With Business Rules it looks pretty easy to do that inside of Adaxes and that would cover most cases, but I'd also like to get a notification if something changes on the object and the change was not initiated by Adaxes.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, there is no possibility to track the changes performed via third party tools. As a workaround, you can use a scheduled task to preserve the property values whose changes should be tracked in custom attributes and compare them to the current ones. For example, the task for tracking the Job Title and Department property values should look like the following: image.png

If all the changes should be listed in a single notification, it can be done only using a PowerShell script.

For your information, multi-valued attributes can be tracked only using a PowerShell script. For an example, please, have a look at the following scripts from our repository: https://www.adaxes.com/script-repository/changes-in-group-membership-including-changes-made-by-3rd-party-tools-s289.htm.
