Powershell Automation - Set a Scheduled Task to Run PS each night to update a List of Members For a Security Group

1 Endorsement
Last Modified: 2020-01-10
I have created a Powershell Script that will search for all Account Managers in our company and then adds then to particular Security Group.

Get-ADUser -Filter {description -eq 'ACCTMGR - Account Manager' -and Enabled -eq $True} | export-csv c:\active_account_managers.csv
Import-CSV c:\active_account_managers.csv -Header SamAccountName | ForEach-Object {Add-AdGroupMember -Identity "Powerbi_All_AM" -members $_.SamAccountName}

Open in new window

How can i then add a line of code to this script that will go out and search ALL account managers who are no longer Active and remove them from the group "Powerbi_All_AM"?

Maybe doing something like this...

#This will both add users who are newly onboarded account managers and remove any that have been offboarded i think
Get-ADUser -Filter {description -eq 'ACCTMGR - Account Manager' -and Enabled -eq $True} | export-csv c:\active_AMs.csv
Import-CSV c:\active_AMs.csv -Header SamAccountName | ForEach-Object {Add-AdGroupMember -Identity "Powerbi_All_DM" -members $_.SamAccountName}

Get-ADUser -Filter {description -eq 'ACCTMGR - Account Manager' -and Enabled -eq $False} | export-csv c:\offboarded_account_managers.csv
Import-CSV C:\offboarded_account_managers.csv -Header SamAccountName | ForEach-Object {Remove-AdGroupMember -Identity "Powerbi_All_AM" -members $_.SamAccountName}

Open in new window

Would that work? And is spaces between both lines of code ok or do they all need to be under each other?
