Hello,

I am trying to put a bunch of user into csv and send it via email, but It only adds me one user into it, I am not sure why is it caused, any idea?

Many thanks
Get-QADUser -Enabled -SearchRoot 'xxx'| 
 %{  if (($_.manager -eq $null) -or ($_.accountexpires -eq $null)) `
 {
 
  $_ |  select name,samaccountname,@{N='Manager';E={$_.manager}  },@{N='AccountExpires';E={($_.accountexpires)}} | 
#out-file -filepath C:\subcontractorsExport.txt -encoding ASCII 
 Export-Csv -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"
}
}
#Send-MailMessage -From "xx" -To "xx" -Smtpserver "server" -Subject "Export of Subcontractors" -Body "Export of subcontractors without manager or accountexpires" -Attachments "C:\subcontractorsExport.csv"

You shoul put the export outside of the ForEach.
And I do not really understand why do you need that select-object?
My solution is attached.
Get-QADUser -SearchRoot 'xxx' -enabled -LdapFilter '(!(&(manager=*)(accountExpires=9223372036854775807)))' | Export-Csv -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"

And maybe you might want to add the -notypeinformation switch to the export.
Get-QADUser -enabled -LdapFilter '(!(&(manager=*)(accountExpires=9223372036854775807)))' | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"

Sorry, this is the right solution:
Get-QADUser -SearchRoot 'xxx' -enabled -LdapFilter '(!(&(manager=*)(accountExpires=9223372036854775807)))' | 
select-object name, samaccountname, manager, accountexpires | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Hi,
It should be something like this, strange that out-file works.

Get-QADUser -Enabled -SearchRoot 'xx'|  %{          if (($_.manager -eq $null) -or ($_.accountexpires -eq $null)) `
 {
 
  $_ |  select name,samaccountname,@{N='Manager';E={ if($_.manager -eq $null){write 'empty'}else{$_.manager | get-qaduser | select -ExpandProperty name }}  },@{N='AccountExpires';E={((get-date ($_.accountexpires)).adddays(-1)).Tostring(“dd.MM.yyyy”) }} | Export-Csv -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"
#out-file -filepath C:\subcontractorsExport.txt -encoding ASCII
# Export-Csv -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"
}
}

Put your export at the very end!

Get-QADUser -Enabled -SearchRoot 'xx'|  %{          if (($_.manager -eq $null) -or ($_.accountexpires -eq $null)) `
 {
 
  $_ |  select name,samaccountname,@{N='Manager';E={ if($_.manager -eq $null){write 'empty'}else{$_.manager | get-qaduser | select -ExpandProperty name }}  },@{N='AccountExpires';E={((get-date ($_.accountexpires)).adddays(-1)).Tostring(“dd.MM.yyyy”) }} | Export-Csv -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"
#out-file -filepath C:\subcontractorsExport.txt -encoding ASCII
# }
} | Export-Csv -Path C:\subcontractorsExport.csv -Delimiter ";"

Out-File works as it appends lines to the file, but the export-csv rewrites.

And consider replacing your first line to:
Get-QADUser -SearchRoot 'xxx' -enabled -LdapFilter '(!(&(manager=*)(accountExpires=9223372036854775807)))'

It's much more efficient.

Yes, it should be the same, but it filter runs on the DC side, not in the PowerShell process.
