  • Exporting User attributes of indirect group members

    We have a global AD-group which consists of 90 global groups which are containing total of 300 inetorgperson user accounts. My goal is to export some user attributes using scheduled command line script on a regular basis but can't export any user attributes if choosing the top group as Exporter Pro object.

    Only way I managed to export needed attributes was when selecting manually in Hyena "View Members" of top group which gave me the list of those 90 groups. After that I selected "View Members" again which gave me the list of needed 300 inetorgperson user accounts. After that I selected all the user accounts and chose "Export from selected objects"...

    Is there a setting I miss which enables Exporter Pro to check group of users inside another group?

    On the group export template, there is an Options button, and on that dialog, there is an option to export indirect group members.

      OK, found that.

      When selecting "group export template" I am not able to export user attributes like streetaddress, telephonenumber, sn, givenname etc. Although it does automatically (?) export attributes like objectclass, adspath, distinguishedname... Where are these automatic attributes defined? I haven't selected them by myself.

        These member attributes are automatically defined for you. There isn't any GUI to set them, but they can be changed manually.

        See the post here for detailed instructions on how to customize the group member fields:

          After serious testing I have figured following symptoms:

          - when enabling both "Attributes" and "GroupMemberAttributes" I get an error message "An invalid argument was encountered"
          - "Attributes=adspath" seems to be MUST to get any output on file but even then I can't get any needed settings of nested group members; instead I get a list of nested member's attributes like "distinguishedname;cn;displayname;description;obje ctclass;samaccountname;useraccountcontrol;IS_PRIMA RY;INDIRECT_MEMBER_PARENT" but I dont't want or need that kind of information so I'm getting little desperate here.

          My only solution is to select nested group members manually from Hyena GUI and then select Exporter Pro --> Export from selected objects...
