Powershell converting noteproperty curly brace member

Hello EE,

I am creating a script to pull some active directory information as an html report for compliance reasons . I have one line of code that I have been struggling with .

[array]$ClientUserRoles = get-qaduser -SizeLimit 50000 |where { $_.accountisdisabled -match "False" -and $_.ParentContainer  -match "domain.ca/ClientAccts"  } | select memberof,name |sort memberof 

Open in new window


The issue is the "memberof" member is a curly bracket noteproperty , so when I convert this to html it reads "System.String[]" . So how would I get only the "CN=" values as a string?

ypeName: Selected.Quest.ActiveRoles.ArsPowerShellSnapIn.Data.ArsUserObject

Name        MemberType   Definition                              
----        ----------   ----------                              
Equals      Method       bool Equals(System.Object obj)          
GetHashCode Method       int GetHashCode()                       
GetType     Method       type GetType()                          
ToString    Method       string ToString()                       
MemberOf    NoteProperty System.String[] MemberOf=System.String[]
Name        NoteProperty System.String Name=Foglight             

Open in new window


MemberOf : {CN=ErnestAD,OU=Ernest,OU=ClientAccts,DC=domain,DC=ca, CN=ErnestGGTrain,OU=Ernest,OU=ClientAccts,DC=domain,DC=ca, 
           CN=ErnestGGProd,OU=Ernest,OU=ClientAccts,DC=domain,DC=ca, CN=ErnestGlobal,OU=Ernest,OU=ClientAccts,DC=domain,DC=ca}

Use..
[array]$ClientUserRoles = get-qaduser -SizeLimit 50000 |where { $_.accountisdisabled -match "False" -and $_.ParentContainer  -match "domain.ca/ClientAccts"  } | select {$_.memberof},name |sort $_.memberof

Open in new window

Or
[array]$ClientUserRoles = get-qaduser -SizeLimit 50000 |where { $_.accountisdisabled -match "False" -and $_.ParentContainer  -match "domain.ca/ClientAccts"  } | select @{N="memberof";E={$_.memberof}},name |sort memberof

Ok the second block of code works but , how do I only select the " CN=" ? Ie ,  I only wish to gather the container ( group designation) ?

[array]$ClientUserRoles = get-qaduser -SizeLimit 500 |where { $_.accountisdisabled -match "False" -and $_.ParentContainer  -match "intelisys.ca/ClientAccts"  } | select @{N="memberof";E={$_.memberof}},name |sort memberof 
$ClientUserRoles = $ClientUserRoles | somestuff here to gather only the groups info

Both should work..

To get only group names from DN,

Change..
Select @{N="memberof";E={$_.memberof}},name

Open in new window

to
Select @{N="memberof";E={($_.memberof | %{$_ -replace "(CN=)(.*?),.*",'$2'}) -join " , "}},name
