  • Is it possible to trigger a Web Service when a change happens in Active Directory, ie a name change or a password change.

  • There is no native functionality I'm aware of that would allow you to accomplish this. One option to consider is to explore event auditing as the source of the trigger (e.g. leveraging the mechanism described in http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/window-on-windows/?p=759)

  • Thanks for the suggestion Marcin. So, create an audit policy to log successful update to passwords and names in active directory, then schedule a task at the occurence of the event to start a program/script to kick off the web service?
