Get-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject

Last Updated: 3/26/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets the users and groups to which a fine-grained password policy is applied.

SYNTAX

Get-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject [-AuthType <ADAuthType>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-Identity] <ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy> [-Server <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject cmdlet gets users and groups that are subject to a fine-grained password policy.

The Identity parameter specifies the fine-grained password policy. You can identify a fine-grained password policy by its distinguished name, GUID, or name. You can also set the Identity parameter to a fine-grained password policy object variable, such as $<localPasswordPolicyObject>, or pass a fine-grained password policy object through the pipeline operator to the Identity parameter. For example, you can use the Get-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy cmdlet to retrieve a fine-grained password policy object and then pass the object through the pipeline operator to the Get-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject cmdlet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get the subject of a fine-grained password policy

PS C:\> Get-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject -Identity DomainUsersPSO | FT Name,ObjectClass,DistinguishedName -AutoSize
Name                     ObjectClass DistinguishedName
----                     ----------- -----------------
Domain Users group       CN=Domain   Users,CN=Users,DC=FABRIKAM,DC=COM

This command gets the fine-grained password policy subject of the password policy named DomainUsersPSO.

PARAMETERS

-AuthType

Specifies the authentication method to use. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Negotiate or 0
  • Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

Type: ADAuthType
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: Negotiate, Basic

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Credential

Specifies the user account credentials to use to perform this task. The default credentials are the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell provider drive. If the cmdlet is run from such a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

To specify this parameter, you can type a user name, such as User1 or Domain01\User01 or you can specify a PSCredential object. If you specify a user name for this parameter, the cmdlet prompts for a password.

You can also create a PSCredential object by using a script or by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. You can then set the Credential parameter to the PSCredential object.

If the acting credentials do not have directory-level permission to perform the task, Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell returns a terminating error.

Type: PSCredential
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Identity

Specifies an Active Directory fine-grained password policy object by providing one of the following property values. The identifier in parentheses is the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) display name for the attribute. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • A distinguished name
  • A GUID (objectGUID)
  • A name (name)

The cmdlet searches the default naming context or partition to find the object. If two or more objects are found, the cmdlet returns a non-terminating error.

This parameter can also get this object through the pipeline or you can set this parameter to a fine-grained password policy object instance.

Type: ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Server

Specifies the AD DS instance to connect to, by providing one of the following values for a corresponding domain name or directory server. The service may be any of the following: AD LDS, AD DS, or Active Directory snapshot instance.

Specify the AD DS instance in one of the following ways:

Domain name values:

  • Fully qualified domain name
  • NetBIOS name

Directory server values:

  • Fully qualified directory server name
  • NetBIOS name
  • Fully qualified directory server name and port

The default value for this parameter is determined by one of the following methods in the order that they are listed:

  • By using the Server value from objects passed through the pipeline
  • By using the server information associated with the AD DS Windows PowerShell provider drive, when the cmdlet runs in that drive
  • By using the domain of the computer running Windows PowerShell
Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

INPUTS

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy

A fine-grained password policy object is received by the Identity parameter.

OUTPUTS

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADPrincipal

Returns principal objects that represent the users and groups to which the fine-grained password policy is applied.
