How to list users in an Active Directory group within Powershell

We’ve been checking AD group permissions, making sure that the right people have the right access.

Here’s a simple script to keep handy, it’ll list all the users, name and their department of a AD group, in the examples below it’s listing a group called ‘Administrator’, the first script lists to screen the second one creates a .csv file in C:\Temp

Displays to screen in Powershell

Get-AdGroupMember 'Administrators' | Select samAccountName,
@{Name="DisplayName";Expression={(Get-ADUser $_.distinguishedName -Properties Displayname).Displayname}},
@{Name="Title";Expression={(Get-ADUser $_.distinguishedName -Properties Title).title}},
@{Name="Department";Expression={(Get-ADUser $_.distinguishedName -Properties Department).department}}

Creates a CSV file in C:\Temp

AdGroupMember 'Administrators' | Select samAccountName,
@{Name="DisplayName";Expression={(Get-ADUser $_.distinguishedName -Properties Displayname).Displayname}},
@{Name="Title";Expression={(Get-ADUser $_.distinguishedName -Properties Title).title}},
@{Name="Department";Expression={(Get-ADUser $_.distinguishedName -Properties Department).department}} | Export-csv -path C:\Temp\AdministratorsGroupMembers.csv

Hope it helps.
