acl reporter for just folders

are there any tools out there, or scripts that will do an ACL report for a specific level, i.e.

\\server\share - do an ACL report for all root level sub directories in this share.

the only thing that comes close is accessEnum but it does all folders, sub folders, files, so the end report becomes ridiculous. I just want a tool where you can specify how deep to scan and limit to only directories.

The only thing I know of that would beclose would be the following script

$OutFile = "C:\Permissions.csv"
$Header = "Folder Path,IdentityReference,AccessControlType,IsInherited,InheritanceFlags,PropagationFlags"
Del $OutFile
Add-Content -Value $Header -Path $OutFile 

$RootPath = "C:\Test"

$Folders = dir $RootPath -recurse | where {$_.psiscontainer -eq $true}

foreach ($Folder in $Folders){
	$ACLs = get-acl $Folder.fullname | ForEach-Object { $_.Access  }
	Foreach ($ACL in $ACLs){
	$OutInfo = $Folder.Fullname + "," + $ACL.IdentityReference  + "," + $ACL.AccessControlType + "," + $ACL.IsInherited + "," + $ACL.InheritanceFlags + "," + $ACL.PropagationFlags
	Add-Content -Value $OutInfo -Path $OutFile
	}}

Open in new window


Change the root path to the folder or drive you want to scan

accessenum though, as I clearly put in my quetion, you cant restrict the tool to a certain level, i.e. only folders, can you? i.e. if i specify a folder, its going to do an acl for all sub folders and files, which isnt what I am after

what I am after, is to only list the acl for root level folders in a specific directory

so if I specify \\server\share

I want the acl for \\server\share\folder 1, \\server\share\folder 2

I dont care about the acl for \\server\sharefolder1\ee.docx or \\server\share\folder1\subfolder2\ee.xlsx
