Hello

Back when we first started using Adaxes you created a couple of great scripts which worked together really well, the first one copied one users group membership and put in in a custom attribute of the user running the command (as a holding area), the second copied the groups back from this holding area to the second user who needs added to these group. This script overwrites the group membership of the second user which is what we needed at the time.

Would it be possible to have a script which pasted these groups as an addition to what groups the second user is already a member of?

Thank you.

Hello,

Yes, sure. We've asked our script guys to come up with such a script. We'll update this topic as soon as they have a script for you.

Hello,

Here you are:

# Get an array of  group GUIDs
try
{
    $sourceGroupGuids = $Context.Initiator.UserAdsObject.Get("adm-CustomAttributeBinary1")
}
catch
{
    $Context.Cancel("Failed to get group GUIDs.")
    return
}

# Calculate the number of GUIDs
$totalBytes = $sourceGroupGuids.Length
# Make sure that the total number of  bytes is a divisible of 16
$remainder = 0
[System.Math]::DivRem($totalBytes, 16, [ref] $remainder)
if ($remainder -ne 0)
{
    $Context.Cancel("Unexpected data length!")
    return
}
$groupsToAdd = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.HashSet[System.Guid]"

for ($i = 0; $i -lt ($totalBytes / 16); $i++)
{
    $bytes = [System.Guid]::Empty.ToByteArray()
    [System.Array]::Copy($sourceGroupGuids, $i * 16, $bytes, 0, 16)
    $guid = New-Object "System.Guid" (,$bytes)
    $groupsToAdd.Add($guid)
}

# Get GUIDs of the groups the user is a member of
$memberOfGuids = $Context.TargetObject.GetEx("adm-DirectMemberOfGuid")

# Adjust the list of groups to add the user to
foreach($memberOfGuidBytes in $memberOfGuids)
{
    $guid = New-Object "System.Guid" (,$memberOfGuidBytes)
    if (-not($groupsToAdd.Contains($guid)))
    {
        continue
    }

    $groupsToAdd.Remove($guid) # already a member of the group
}

# Add to groups
$failedToAdd = ""
$successfullyAdded = ""
foreach($groupGuid in $groupsToAdd)
{
    $groupGuid = $groupGuid.ToString("B")
    $groupPath = "Adaxes://<GUID=$groupGuid>"
    $groupName = $Context.GetDisplayNameFromAdsPath($groupPath)
    try
    {
        $group = $Context.BindToObjectEx($groupPath, $True)
        $group.Add($Context.TargetObject.AdsPath)
    }
    catch
    {
        $failedToAdd += "$groupName; "
        continue
    }

    $successfullyAdded += "$groupName; "
}

if ($successfullyAdded.Length -ne 0)
{
    $Context.LogMessage("The user was added to the following groups: $successfullyAdded", "Information") # TODO: modify me
}
if ($failedToAdd.Length -ne 0)
{
    $Context.LogMessage("The user was not added to the following groups because you do not have sufficient permissions: $failedToAdd", "Information") # TODO: modify me
}

Thanks so much, very quick response and it worked perfectly!
