Hello all SharePoint fanatics,

My task is: Send e-mail to the new user when it's created in AD.

So, AD is sync with SP farm, so I want to know, if it is possible detect, when added the new user in SP?

Or maybe ideas, how could I deal with my task.

How are you creating users in AD? There is no event in SharePoint when a new user profile is added so you wold need to poll AD or SharePoint User Profiles for the new user. If you already have a provisioning process for your AD Users I would attach the email there.

  • I'm creating users directly to AD. BTW, I found solution - use ldap request fo that ;)

  • Sure, since you are the one creating them that makes it much easier. Jun 15, 2018 at 11:12
