Robo Request allows automated scheduled (policy based) user modification, computer modification, group modification and contacts modification. Robo Request as per the schedule and on the schedule date, will trigger the set policy and move the action for the object to the workflow queue, from here it is filtered and committed for changes to take effect.
Robo Requester is used for automating time consuming and mundane tasks for instance it can be used to perform clean up of the Active Directory. Robo request is created based on the request category. For example, administrator can delete all the disabled users at a time by selecting the disabled users request action and setting time from when, all the disabled users should be deleted.
Robo Request supports the following categories of actions on objects.
