I've tried using the business container creation script and looping a foreach and I've been getting errors on the SetInfo part, just wondering what I'm doing wrong.

It is not possible to comment on that without viewing the script and the errors. At the same time, it should work just fine if the CSV file has the required details in it. The following article will be helpful: https://adaxes.com/sdk/ManagingBusinessUnits.


I'm not sure what I did differently today but I got it to work today. It did create the containers, but I cannot set a description on them, when I run the script:

$containers = Import-Csv D:\Scripts\containers.csv
foreach ($container in $containers)

# Connect to the Adaxes service
$ns = New-Object "Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi.AdmNamespace"
$service = $ns.GetServiceDirectly("localhost")

# Bind to the 'My Container' container
$businessUnitsPath = $service.Backend.GetConfigurationContainerPath(
$businessUnitsPathObj = New-Object "Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi.AdsPath"`
$myContainerPath = $businessUnitsPathObj.CreateChildPath("CN=Container1")
$myContainer = $service.OpenObject($myContainerPath, $null, $null, 0)

# Create business unit
$myBusinessUnit = $myContainer.Create("container", $container.container)
$myBusinessUnit.Description = $container.description

# [TODO] specify membership rules


The error: The property 'Description' cannot be found on this object. Verify that the property exists and can be set.

The headers in the csv are container and description and they have the container and description under them. What is the proper attribute to set a description on a BU container?



To achieve the desired, replace this line in the script

$myBusinessUnit.Description = $container.description

with the below one

$myBusinessUnit.Put("description", $container.description)

Wow, fantastic, that worked. Thank you so much for your help!
