Smart Object to add user to Role?

Jump to solution

Hi there. 

 

I am sure this has been asked, but I just can't find it.  

 

Does a system smart object exist that would put a user into a specified role without having to manually add them using hte management console?

 

I have a large number of users I'd like to put into specific roles, and I would love to create a workflow to do it by readin ga list of usernames from a table rather than having to add them to the role one at a time (there are hundreds of users).  

 

I've looked at the Smart Object Service tester for K2 5.2 and I am not seeing anything, but maybe I'm missing it? 

 

Thanks,

 

Rob

Please Have a look at the following:

Hi Robert_Nicholas


 


Another alternative way, you can create a group in AD and all users you want to use in the workflow you add them in that group then on the workflow task you add that group.

Ding ding!  I think Daniel wins...I'm not 100% sure I'll figure out how to adopt his solution, but I think it's the best one. 🙂

Hey @Robert_Nicholas, Did you find a way to do this? Would you able to share the solution here to help me and others out?

 

I have a very similar requirement where we want to be able to add/remove users in a role and build a UI around it so designated Admin can do this without having access to k2 management.

 

None of the old k2 links above work. 😞

 

Also, @DanielKarlsson looking at the screenshot in your solution reply, you built a custom SMO which wraps in-built system SMOs to achieve the same. Would love to get a hand on it if you do not mind instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. 

 

Thanks,

Praveen
