accounts script RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys,

    I need to create a powershell script to create users and add them to a specific group based on the last 3 characters of their username, is there a way to do this or use a group policy to enable this in the OU - is this a possibilty?

    fyi - I am already using a .csv file to specify the usernames.

    Thanks in advace.

  • Look in the Gallery for scripts that can add users to groups based on a CSV,

    This forum does not write custom scripts on request.

  • Hi Nate,

    You may find the matching functionality useful, if you extract the username, you can use the match function to check if something end with a certain set of letters.

    'BobHR' -match 'HR$'

    The dollar at the end is the signal for the end of the line, this would prevent accidental mismatches like HReed being included into the above example.

    Adding them to specific groups can be done through the following command.

    Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $Package -Members $Username
