The Create AD Account widget creates an Active Directory user account in the LDAP path selected in the widget properties. The widget has the option to generate a random password, which is saved to a workflow variable.
This widget uses the Active Directory Settings and Active Directory Account Options properties configured in the Workflow Conductor Control Panel > General Settings page. These settings provide a list of pre-configured LDAP paths that can be used in the widget, determine if Conductor Studio designers can enter their own LDAP paths, and set default account policies for new accounts.
NOTE: This widget accesses Active Directory with the permission of the user account configured with the LDAP path selected in the widget.

|Save Password to Variable (Required)||Select a workflow variable with a Text data type to store the auto-generated or manually-entered account password. Create variables in the Workflow Settings tab in the settings pane, or click the Create new variable link next to the variable list. The password variable can be used later in your workflow to reference the password you just assigned.|
