Active Directory Users Report

This Report retrieves a list of users from Active Directory highlighting those who have been recently added, modified or deleted. It is available in CSV or HTML formats in addition to the option to extract the data via an List Active Directory Users API call.

The information the Active Directory Users Report contains depends on the selection made for this Automated Task in the Active Directory tab under Edit Site, accessible from the Edit menu after choosing the required Site on the Dashboard (or after right-clicking on the Site in the left menu). The Active Directory Automated Task is also added if using the Active Directory Sync option in App Control. After configuration, an Active Directory Users Query Automated Task is added which runs daily at midnight uploading the user account details to the Dashboard where it is subsequently available in the Active Directory Users Report.

Report Export Options

Two export options are available for the Active Directory Users Report and selectable above the north pane once the report is generated.

CSV Export: saves all of the filtered information (including any hidden columns) as a CSV file in the format DATE_FROM-UserAuditReport.csv (for example 2015-08-01-UserAuditReport.csv)

Print: prints the current report view as is (this excludes any hidden columns). The print options available will depend on the configuration of the device the User Audit Report is viewed on.
