My AD has been extended with custom attributes, and I find that I have to use -IncludeProperties or else the properties won't be returned on my query.

Get-QADUser 'john.doe' -IncludeProperties prop1,prop2 | Select Name,prop1,prop2

Open in new window


I'd like to make my custom attributes part of the default properties for the Get-QADUser cmdlet without having to use the -IncludeProperties switch, how do I do this?
Get-QADUser 'john.doe' | Select Name,prop1,prop2

Ok, so I found the solution; you have to add these additional attributes to your profile

$attributes = Get-QADPSSnapinSettings -DefaultOutputPropertiesForUserObject
$attributes += 'prop1','prop2'

Set-QADPSSnapinSettings -DefaultOutputPropertiesForUserObject $attributes

Open in new window
