Basically, I want to automate the creation of a certain type of user account. There are four basic steps, but each step involves a different application and has somewhat intricate details. The steps are as follows:
Open an Excel file and fill in required fields (the fields will be a user name, password with certain requirements, and 2 other simple fields). The template of the Excel file will be the same everytime, but the information entered will be different.
Create a local user account on a remote server with the information entered in step 1. (also, edit certain settings on the user account like "user cannot change password", etc.)
Open up a web browser and browse to an intranet site, enter login information, choose some options, and use a web-based form to upload the Excel file from step 1.
Open up an application called "PasswordSafe", and enter the username/password created in step 1.
Ideally, the way this would work is having a command line type window prompt the user for the required information, and perform the above 4 steps.
I've researched a couple different automation programs and one seems to work, but is very expensive. Is there a good way to do this that is relatively easy and cheap?
Thanks for any help.
