Groups that a user is a member of

7 posts in this topic

I downloaded adfunctions.au3, but I'm not finding the command I'm looking for. I want to pull ALL groups that a user is a member of as opposed to manually checking each one. Several commands in the file look like they will work, and they do not, here is what I have tried:

_ADGetUserGroups(_ADSamAccountNameToFQDN(@Username))

The last one I think should work, but it errors with ByRef error.

"ByRef $usergroups"

That's part of the function. I don't know what $usergroups. should be, however, after all, I'm feeding it the user to find out what groups the user is a member of, I don't know what groups the user is a member of beforehand.

Here's the relevant function from adfunctions.au3:

; _ADGetUserGroups
; the currently logged on user is a member of. Returns an array of Full DNs of the Group names that the user is immediately a member of
; with element 0 containing the number of groups.
; $user - optional -- SamAccountName of a user, defaults to locally logged on user

Func _ADGetUserGroups(ByRef $usergroups, $user = @UserName)
     ; ...
EndFunc   ;==>_ADGetUserGroupsoÝ÷ ØÚ-zØ^ºÇ«ËazÇ¢wij¶¦z׫jwb±©ky§r¶ººÞÕ,z³ZæòuçÚº[l£*.­Æ¥Ú

Thanks, this is working now, I think I get some of the array stuff, but here's the code I have now:

_ADGetUserGroups($avGroups)
$grps = _ADDNToSamAccountName(_ArrayPop($avGroups))
While UBound($avGroups) > 0
    $grps = $grps & ", " & _ADDNToSamAccountName(_ArrayPop($avGroups))
WEnd

This code errors with "Badly formated variable or macro." but if I comment out the WHILE statement it *does* return the first element pop'd from the array. I'm certain the WHILE is breaking this, but I don't know why. I believe UBound is being used appropriately here given the example from the help file for _ArrayPoP, but it must be wrong or else it'd be working, right?

When I changed the "> 0" to "> 1" it seems to have worked. It's missing "Domain Users", but that's not a major problem for me.

That's a very awkward way to do it, and produces an error when you try to use the integer value in [0]. Also, any variable use ByRef must be declared beforehand. The array returned by _ADGetUserGroups(), like with many AutoIt functions, has [0] = count. This will work much better:

#include <adfunctions.au3>
#include <array.au3>

Dim $avGroups
_ADGetUserGroups($avGroups)

_ArrayDisplay($avGroups, "Debug: $avGroups")

$grps = ""
For $n = 1 to $avGroups[0]
    $grps &= _ADDNToSamAccountName($avGroups[$n]) & ", "
Next
$grps = StringTrimRight($grps, 2)
MsgBox(64, "Debug", "Debug: $grps = " & $grps)

<_<

Edit: Tweak to remove stray comma from the end of $grps string.

Use the code That PsaltyDS posted.

As a Tip the right way to do the While loop that you tried would have been

While UBound($avGroups)-1 > 0
