Is it possible using PowerShell to copy group memberships from an already existing user without copying 2 specific groups named for example test and test 1 ?

We are currently already using a PowerShell script to copy the group memberships, so only the part that needs to be added in which 2 certain groups are not included.

I can share the PowerShell script if needed.

Hello Cas,

Have a look at the scripts from the following article in our repository: https://www.adaxes.com/script-repository/copy-group-membership-from-specified-user-s590.htm.

Thanks for your quick reply!

Is it also possible to do this based on, for example, the first 4 characters of the groupname, where the rest of the name is variable?

Example:

SEC-"variable" or APP-"Variable". So that it skips everything with "SEC" or "APP" in the groupname ?

Hello Cas,

The functionality is already present in the first script from the article we referenced. In your case, you need to set the $groupNamesToSkip variable as follows:

$groupNamesToSkip = @("SEC*", "APP*") # TODO: modify me

Thanks for your answer. I have it working now!
