Hello,

We currently have a scheduled task that runs a script daily. This script is used to synchronise multiple AD security groups with the Adobe cloud. At the moment we have multiple security groups such as Adobe_Photoshop, Adobe_Indesign, etc. When a member of staff is added anyone of these security groups they are allocated a licence the next time the sync occurs. Obviously we can run this hourly but we don't want to run the script that often as it takes time.

Does anyone know how we could monitor security groups for a change and when a change occurs kick off a script? This was we can ensure that we allocate licences to our team without delay.

You can use event triggered scheduled tasks.
->setup auditing for that groups
->add a group member, see what event log entry gets created in the security log of the DC and create a custom event filter that would catch exactly that event ID and event data and then triggers your task.
No delay.
