Home Folder Lifecycle Plugin

What Does the Home Folder Lifecycle Plugin Do?

The plugin automates routine processes, for example:

  • Whenever a new user account is created, the plugin automatically generates a new home folder for that user.
  • If a user switches to a different office, the plugin automatically transfers that person’s home folder to the file server at the new office.
  • If a person leaves the company, the plugin automatically archives and, if necessary, deletes that person’s home folder.

Automating these otherwise tedious yet necessary tasks saves a tremendous amount of time for admins and also significantly reduces the risk of errors.
