Form a query for groups based on Expiration time attribute RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I want to form a PowerShell query to fetch all the groups from FIM expiring on a particular date. Is it possible? I want to ignore the year and consider only month and date as this will be part of task scheduler and will be running on a monthly basis.

    Currently the groups in FIM seem to have expiration time in the format mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00 AM/PM.

    I am guessing querying groups based on expiration time is not as simple as I thought. I have gone through the blog below as well but still I am not able to form the query for my requirement.


    Any suggestions?

  • You could try something like this:

    $output = @();
    [int]$tMonth = 11;
    [int]$tDay = 11;
    $results = Export-FIMConfig -CustomConfig "/Group" -Uri "http://localhost:5725" -OnlyBaseResources
    foreach ($result in $results)
    	[DateTime]$timeVal = (($result.ResourceManagementObject.ResourceManagementAttributes | Where-Object {$_.AttributeName -eq "ExpirationTime"}).Value);
    	If ($timeVal -ne $null)
    		If (($timeVal.Month -eq $tMonth) -and ($timeVal.Day -eq $tDay))
    			$output += $result;
    return $output;

  • As mgercevich shows in the script already posted, you're going to have to retrieve all groups and then loop through them - there's no way to construct an xpat filter based on a partial dat. If you have a lot of groups, and a limited range of years, then the other way to do it is loop through the years, constructing the exact date string for that year and using that in the query.
