I have a small question about executing custom commands remotely with powershell.
We are now using Adaxes custom commands through orchestrator with remote powershell, but when u execute a custom command like this u don't get any result/log. Is there any way to receive the logs for a command u have just executed in powershell?

Here is an example script we use...:

import-module ActiveDirectory
import-module Adaxes


$admNS = New-Object "Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi.AdmNamespace"
$admService = $admNS.GetServiceDirectly("adaxes_server")

$command_example = "{e14bfad4-5234-4ec7-bcd3-ead9b8a9c7ee}"

$UserAD= Get-AdmUser User1   #### Reference user
$UserAD_DN = $UserAD.distinguishedName
$UserAD = $admService.OpenObject("Adaxes://$UserAD_DN", $NULL, $NULL, 0)

Hello Serge,

You won't be able to retrieve the results directly, however you can get the result of executing the Custom Command via Adaxes logs. For example, right after executing the Custom Command, you can pull the last operation executed on the user account via the Management History of the user. For information on how to access the Management History of an AD object via PowerShell, see section Getting Operations Performed on a Specific Object in the following SDK article: http://www.adaxes.com/sdk/?AccessingLog ... icationLog.

Hi, I followed this example: https://www.adaxes.com/sdk/IAdmTop6.html, but because the Custom Command is disabled, I get the following error message: System.Management.Automation ... if I enable the Custom Command. I am using Adaxes 2018.2 Best Regards Martin
