Create new accounts with associated contact information for Active Directory Services, NT Services, and SQL Membership Provider through SharePoint
The User Account Setup Web Part allows SharePoint users designated by an IT administrator to add users on their own rather than relying on IT personnel to create the accounts. You can
create a new authentication provider account (ADS, NT, and SQL Membership) and at the same time
add the account to defined SharePoint groups in different sites. With
the Active Directory
authentication provider, you also can customize the information collected by defining additional attributes to be populated in both ADS and SharePoint.
Seeking the ability to approve individual account creation? No problem. The User Account Setup Web Part provides the ability to submit account creation requests for approval prior to
creation. The User Account Setup Web Part also stores all transactions into a custom SharePoint list, allowing IT personnel the ability to track all new accounts created.
Out-of-the-box SharePoint does not provide IT administrators the ability to create user accounts
simultaneously in their authentication provider and in SharePoint. Because of this, IT
administrators are responsible for separately managing users for SharePoint customer portals, department sites,
hosted applications, and the entire corporation in both the authentication provider
and in SharePoint. Offloading some of this work to designated users, who have been granted special permissions
by the IT administrator, allows the IT administrator to focus on
higher priority tasks.
User Account Setup Web Part is just part of a larger story, a true password management solution
called Password Management Toolkit. With a complete password management solution, corporations can add another essential
layer of security to their growing and often confidential SharePoint environments by allowing IT
administrators to enforce a full-fledged password policy, including routine password expiration,
without the fear of overhead costs to maintain. With the Bamboo Password Management Toolkit, you not only get Bamboo's top-selling administrator products: Password Change Web Part,
Password Expiration Web Part, Password Reset Web Part, and
User Account Setup Web Part at a 30% discount, but also Premium Annual Support, giving you additional
access to world-class Bamboo support and free major upgrades for all four included products.
