I'm learning as I go - but one thing I have always wondered, in bigger corporations does the IT department enter all new hires into active directory / create the exchange mailbox or is there a setup that allows the human resources / managers to add new employees?
I suppose I could develop something where they enter the persons information and it pushes to all necessary systems - but I was wondering if there was a built in method - or is that just something that the IT department does?
Currently I am given a copy of the new employees information, put them into all systems (active directory, time and attendance, exchange, etc) and then return the information.
Looking for a better method to accomplish this. The current systems that we use are:
Active directory, Microsoft Exchange, QQest time and Attendance, and MySQL, and then mcafee SAS protection systems.
QQest has active directory integration, but even working with them I have never been able to get it to fully function properly.
McAfee SAS just released an active directory integration feature, but I have heard it still has bugs and am waiting for an update version before trying to implement.
I am planning on using active directory as the login information for the mysql database, we are currently writing a new version of the system for use with that but will be sometime before completed.
