Powershell to Retrieve all Active Directory user Information

Powershell to Retrieve all Active Directory user Information

In Active Directory User account properties, we have some Customized Tabs(created by Developers, not from Microsoft Default Tabs)
I am running this command in Powershell to get the information of a user, but it does not retrieve all the information and none of the information from the Customized tab.

Get-ADUser -Identity Username -Properties *


Any Help ?

Thank you

Are you running powershell in an Elevated permissions session (Run as administrator)? It's possible there are read permission limitations on the attributes that stop get-aduser from operating correctly. Normally, all users have read permission on all attributes in AD (security implications of that are a whole different subject), so get-aduser would always have permission to read them, but if the attributes themselves have been configured in AD so they only allow admins to read, you would have to run Powershell as an administrator for get-aduser to pull the data.

That should return any custom attributes that are stored in Active Directory. However, your developer may not have properly added the attributes on your custom tab to the Active Directory Schema and may have elected to store those attributes in some other way. Without seeing the tab and what it does, I could not say for certain, though. What you will want to do is open AD Users and Computers in advanced features view (go to View, select Advanced Features) then open a user and go to the attribute editor tab and look for anything that has a value that shows up on the custom tab. If nothing shows up on the Attribute Editor tab that shows up on the custom tab, then get-adusers will not be able to return those values on its own. You would need to use a custom script that makes calls to the application storing information for that additional tab (and smack your developers for not adding the attributes to Active Directory's Schema)

I know you're looking for a script, but you don't really need one to get all of the AD users. Just go to Active Directory Users & Computers -> User OU. In the toolbar at the top there's an Export List option.
