In this posting below you will find a script to get an Active Directory User's Group Memberships including nested Group Memberships:
quite a while ago I started this thread: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/193984-ad-member-of-group-in-group/
#include <AD.au3> _AD_Open() $user=_AD_SamAccountNameToFQDN("ASP") $group=_AD_SamAccountNameToFQDN("daten-Bestellung-QS_lesen") $result=_AD_IsMemberOf($group,$user,false,True) ; $Group is the 1st, $User the 2nd param ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $result = ' & $result & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console _AD_Close() this works fine, thanks for the help in the other thread.
Howto to get the "chain" of groups for nested group memberships?
In AD.AU3 I found the function _AD_RecursiveGetMemberOf(), which might be an approach, (get all the group content then sort out what's needed), just wondering if there is another function that I've overlooked, that directly would give me the "nested membership chain" *ONLY*?
It has been a long time since I posted, role changes etc involving work and I finally am back to modifying a program I write in AutoIt that has AD integration. I am at a point where we are modifying our structure where I am validating users access via what Distribution List they belong to in our AD OU's. What I have run into is the OU is a sub OU of a sub OU now. Meaning: CN=team, OU=DL, OU=Groups, DC=business.com(working), is now CN=Team, OU=SubDL, OU=DL, OU=Groups, DC=business.com (Not working). Just curious if the AD functionality should be able to read it or maybe I am missing something?
ElseIf _AD_IsMemberOf("CN=Team,OU=Distribution Lists,OU=Groups,DC=business,DC=com", $sFQDN_User) Then #works for primary Distro ElseIf _AD_IsMemberOf("CN=Team,OU=SubDL,OU=Distribution Lists,OU=Groups,DC=business,DC=com", $sFQDN_User) Then #fails for subOU of DL How I am accessing AD to get the information:
_AD_Open() Global $aUser = _AD_GetObjectsInOU("", "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(samaccountname=" & @UserName & "))", 2, "ADsPath,Displayname,distinguishedName") Global $sDisplayName0 = $aUser ; Displayname ;MsgBox(0,"", $sDisplayName0) If StringLeft($sDisplayName0, 2) = "9-" Then $Displaynamestring = StringTrimLeft($sDisplayName0, 2) $Displaynamestring1 = StringTrimRight($Displaynamestring, 6) The error code generated is a 1 with a 0 extended. I assume it is because it cannot find the SubOU.
Thanks for any assistance.

I can smoothly check, if a user is a *DIRECT* group member. Has anybody some code to check also, if a user is a *INDIRECT* member of a cascaded group construct? Maybe with @Melba23 's AD UDF?
The required rights are granted to group "Dept_B" User John is member of group "Dept_A" Group "Dept_A" is member of the group "Dept_B" So in the AD / NTFS FS environment John finally has the rights of both groups But when checking his "membership to group Dept_B" the result is "no member". The approach I can think of would be, to check all Group Members of group "Dept_B" whether they are of type group, then check again if "John" is member of than " 2nd level group"
Func UserInGroup($InGroup,$ThisUser=@LogonDomain & "/" & @UserName) Local $objUser = ObjGet("WinNT://" & $ThisUser ) For $oGroup in $objUser.Groups If $oGroup.Name = $InGroup Then Return 1 EndIf Next Return 0 EndFunc Any suggestions appreciated, regards, Rudi.
