Primary / Secondary Owners inheritance

I'm looking to automate the primary/secondary owners of Security Groups - based on the primary/secondary owners of the OU that the Security Group is contained within.

Security Groups (top ou)

--Application Groups (sub ou)

-- --Application Team1 (sub ou)

Application Team1 OU will have a primary owner (the manager of the application team1 "team")

Application Team1 OU will have a secondary owner (the security group Application Team1)

I want all groups created in the Application Team1 OU to be auto populated with the primary/secondary owner from the parent OU. If the manager is ever replaced, we could change the owner of the Application Team1 OU and it will automatically update all the security groups below it.


Hopefully that makes sense. Seems like it would be easy to do, but I'm struggling a little bit.

  • #1 - I figured there was a way to do this with a group provisioning policy - took me a bit to figure out how but now it completely makes sense. Works like a champ.

    #2 - Having a hard time wrapping my head around the workflow part.

    Created new workflow
    - Operation Conditions (I think this is correct) - Modify Properties of type Organizational Unit - managedby and edsvaSecondaryOwners properites

    -Initiator Conditions (I think this is where my problem lies)
    Initiator - Any User
    Container - I'm assuming this is the OU that I want the workflow to "watch" for modification? or is this the OU for the "initiator users" ?
