Script Repository

Users with malformed street addresses

February 25, 2021 Views: 2130

This script generates and emails an HTML-formatted report containing user accounts whose street addresses specified in the Street Address attribute do not match the office names specified in the Office attribute.

To generate the reports upon request, you can create a custom command that runs the script. To schedule the reports, you need to create a scheduled task configured for the Domain-DNS object type and run it against any of your AD domains.

To add the script to a custom command or scheduled task, use the Run a program or PowerShell script action.


  • $to - Specifies email addresses of the recipient(s) of the report.
  • $subject - Specifies the email message subject.
  • $reportHeader - Specifies the email message header.
  • $reportFooter - Specifies the email message footer.
  • $ouDNs - Specifies the distinguished names (DNs) of the Organizational Units in which the script will verify the street addresses.
