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.MethodInvocationException:
Exception calling "ExecuteCustomCommand" with "2" argument(s): "Custom command '<the name of the custom command>' is disabled." 
---> System.InvalidOperationException: Custom command '<the name of the custom command>' is disabled. 
at Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi.AdmObjectPipelined.ExecuteCustomCommand(String customCommandIdArg, IAdmCustomCommandArguments argumentsArg) 
at CallSite.Target(Closure , CallSite , Object , Object , Object ) 
--- End of inner exception stack trace --- 
at System.Management.Automation.ExceptionHandlingOps.CheckActionPreference(FunctionContext funcContext, Exception exception)

at System.Management.Automation.Interpreter.EnterTryCatchFinallyInstruction.Run(InterpretedFrame frame) 
at System.Management.Automation.Interpreter.EnterTryCatchFinallyInstruction.Run(InterpretedFrame frame)

The Custom Command should not be available directly through the context menu, since it is meant to only be execuded by a script, another custom command, or some other form of automation.

For clarity, It works if I enable the Custom Command.

I am using Adaxes 2018.2

Best Regards Martin

Hello Martin,

Unfortunately, it is not possible. Disabled Custom Commands can only be executed in Business Rules, Scheduled Tasks and other Custom Commands. As a solution, you can first enable the command in your script and then disable it after execution as in the below example.

[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi")

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

# Bind to the Custom Command
$commandDN = "CN=My Command,CN=Custom Commands,CN=Configuration Objects,"+
    "CN=Adaxes Configuration,CN=Adaxes"
$command = $admService.OpenObject("Adaxes://$commandDN", $NULL, $NULL, 0)

# Enable Custom Command
$command.Disabled = $False
$command.SetInfo()

# Specify arguments for command execution
$commandArguments = $command.CreateArguments()
$commandArguments.SetParameterValue("MyParameter", "MyValue")

# Bind to the Organizational Unit
$containerDN = "OU=My OU,DC=domain,DC=com"
$container = $admService.OpenObject("Adaxes://$containerDN", $NULL, $NULL, 0)

# Execute the Custom Command for all users in the Organizational Unit
$container.Filter = @("user")

foreach ($user in $container)
{
    $user.ExecuteCustomCommand($command.CommandID, $commandArguments)
}

# Disable Custom Command
$command.Disabled = $True
$command.SetInfo()
