Is there a custom script hook for when a user account is added using

I have a custom script I run when creating a user account, and having
this run automatically by IPA would make my life a lot easier.

Can you describe what kind of operations you need to do?
Have you looked at the automembership plugin?

I'm doing a SSH login on to a filer, creating a home folder ZFS
dataset for the new user, setting quota and ACL on the newly created
dataset, and adding files from a skeleton folder into the home folder.

It might be a stupid question but... you seem to do all the operation
described above on the filer. I am not quite clear what part of it, if
any, needs to be run on the server side, I mean on the IPA. Or you
actually want to be able to create an account on the server side and
make it trapped and send the event to the filer and run a script there?

We can't do it now. AFAIR there was a ticket about something like this
in the deferred bucket... Could not find it... But I remember a discussion.
We might need to file a ticket to track this but sound like something
that will take a lot of time to accomplish.

The filer get it's user account data from the IPA server. The commands I'm running on the filer is to create a personal dataset (filesystem) for the newly created user account, as well as setting the correct ACL for the filesystem. The filer is a ZFS based filer, and the command being used is "zfs create ...". There is no remote API for this command.

However I feel like you have misinterpreted the request. It does not matter to IPA what I'm trying to accomplish with my script. I require a script to be run after a user account has been created (or deleted, or perhaps deleted).

There are plenty of environments where custom scripts is required to run after a new user account is created. In a typical Microsoft AD environments this is often accomplished with additional expensive-to-buy-and-complicated-to-set-up Identify Management suites, so after a user account is created, additional accounts is created in systems such as SAP, Incident Management tool, or any other company specific databases or applications.

In the UNIX/Linux environments I've seen, any post-user-creation tasks is accomplished with a script, run by the user management tool after the account has been created.

Hence my request for the option to run a post-user-creation script. :)
