Orchestration is fufilled via the creation of a Runbook, enabling dissimilar operations to be bound together within a business process to perform a complete end to end solution. Enabling for the standardisation/automisation of best practices that improve efficiency, reliability and reducing user error. As an example the on-boarding of a new user could require the following to be set-up / configured:

  • AD User Account creation
  • Mailbox Creation
  • Forum / Wiki Access
  • Software Installation
  • Database Access rights

Whether some or all of the above operations are actioned is conditional on information passed to the Runbook or logic controlled by the Runbook's business process.

IF the "Access Granted To" is set, then the ability to run this particular Runbook will be limited to only specific users and those users who are members of the configured Groups.
