Move Address List activity

The Move Address List activity moves a Microsoft Exchange address list to another location in the address hierarchy.

This activity implements the Microsoft Exchange Move-AddressList command.

The Exchange server caches the changes from this activity but does not immediately apply them. Use the Update Address List activity after this activity to apply the changes or wait for the Exchange server to automatically apply cached changes.

To access this activity in the workflow editor, select the Custom tab, and then navigate to Custom Activities > Exchange > Address List.
Note: This activity replaces an Exchange activity by the same name available in releases prior to Geneva. If you have a workflow created in a previous version that uses the deprecated activity, your workflow will continue to work normally after upgrading to Geneva. However, all new workflows must use the custom version of this activity. This activity was built with the Powershell activity designer, which gives workflow administrators the ability to store input and output variables in the databus.

Input variables

Table 1. Move Address List input variables
Variables Description
hostname The hostname of the Exchange server with which the activity interacts. Do not enter an IP address in this variable.
domain The name of the Exchange server's assigned domain.
identity Name of the address list to move.
target Path to the address list's new location.
domainController Fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes to Active Directory.
whatif Check box that indicates if the activity should stage the changes without applying them. Use this variable to test your activity settings before using the activity in a live workflow. When this variable is selected, the Exchange server does not make any changes but indicates if the command would succeed or fail. You can review any messages from the Exchange server using the ECC queue.
