Create Address List activity

The Create Address List activity creates a new address list that acts as an alias for emailing all users in the group.

This alias cannot be used to manage user permissions. This activity implements the Microsoft Exchange New-AddressList command.

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. Create Address List input variables
Variable 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.
name Name of the new address list to create.
parameters Optional parameters to pass to the Exchange server written in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). Exchange activities cannot pass parameters that reference an object, such as a PSCredential object. Plain text is automatically converted to SecureString objects for parameters that require that data type.
Attempting to save an activity that specifies duplicate parameters, including parameters from activity variables, or incorrectly formatted JSON causes a warning message to appear.
Note: When passing a switch parameter, such as ForceUpgrade, you must use the format "parameter":"true".
