Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Service Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager, System Center 2012 - Service Manager
The steps of the Woodgrove Bank customization scenario are as follows. Details about each of those steps are provided in subsequent topics. For background information about this scenario, see Sample Scenario: The Woodgrove Bank Customization.
Ken has to create a class that represents the new custom activity, and a matching form to use to access that new class. He starts by opening the Woodgrove.AutomatedActivity.AddComputerToADGroupMP management pack that contains the definitions for the following class and form:
The Automated Activity: Add Computer To AD Group custom class that represents the new automatic activity. This activity adds a new computer to a specified group in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).
The form that represents the Automated Activity: Add Computer To AD Group class. Ken can use this form to enter information about the computer that is being added and the Active Directory group to which the computer should be added.
Instead of creating these necessary objects, you can import a pre-defined management pack as part of the Woodgrove Bank customization scenario.
For more information about how to open the management pack, see Step 1: Open the Woodgrove.AutomatedActivity.AddComputerToADGroupMP Management Pack.
Often, customers want to adapt default forms to their organizations’ preferences. In this scenario, Ken adds an image that represents the company logo to the default change request form and then rearranges the layout of the fields on the form.
For more information about how to customize the default change request form, see Step 2: Customize the Default Change Request Form.
Ken creates the AddComputerToADGroupRule workflow that automatically adds the specified computer to the specified Active Directory group after the compliance change request is approved.
For more information about how to create the workflow rule and the Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) Workflow, see Step 3: Create the WF Workflow.
Ken moves the workflow assembly file and the form assembly file to the Service Manager Program folder.
For more information about how to move the assembly files to the Service Manager console, see Step 4: Move the Assembly Files to the Service Manager Console.
Ken edits the custom management pack file to define the criteria that control when the workflow runs. Then, he has to bundle and import the custom management pack.
For more information about how to bundle and import the custom management pack into Service Manager, see Step 5: Bundle and Import the Custom Management Pack to Service Manager.
Ken adds the new Compliance list item that represents the new type of change request.
For more information about how to extend the change area enumeration list, see Step 6: Extend the Change Area Enumeration List.
Ken creates the Start AD Users and Computers task that starts the AD Users and Computers administration tool from the Service Manager console. Ken can conveniently monitor the Active Directory group to which the new computer is being added.
For more information about how to create a new task, see Step 7: Create a New Task.
Ken creates the Compliance Change Requests view, which displays change requests of the new type. This includes all change requests in which Area = Compliance.
For more information about how to create a new view, see Step 8: Create a New View.
Create a new Apply AppLocker Software Policy to Computer change request template for the new compliance change request type.
For more information about how to create a new change request template, see Step 9: Create a New Change Request Template.
Ken creates the Computer was added to AppLocker Policy Group notification subscription that sends an email notification message to Ken when the status of an Automated Activity: Add Computer To AD Group activity is updated. This message notifies Ken that the workflow process is completed.
For more information about how to create a notification template and subscription (optional), see Step 10: Create a Notification Template and Subscription (Optional).
To test the new process, Ken creates a new compliance change request to add the ADComputer1 computer to the GP_AUTHAPPS group. Next, he submits and approves the new change request. Finally, Ken verifies in AD DS that the new computer has been added to the appropriate Active Directory group.
For more information about how to use the new compliance change request process, see Step 11: Use the New Compliance Change Request Process.
