Getting AD User Attributes

by Jan 12, 2017

By default, Get-ADUser (provided by ActiveDirectory module which is part of the free Microsoft RSAT tools) retrieves only a few default properties. To get more information, use the –Properties parameter, and specify the properties you are after.

To get a list of all AD users with their notes and description fields, try this:

#requires -Modules ActiveDirectory 
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties Description, Info

If you don’t know the names of available properties, use “*” instead to retrieve all available properties.
