ADSI syntax

  Asked By: Lukas    Date: Nov 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1309

I am writing a Web Part that will iterate through all the users that have permission to a site, and display certain information about them, such as name, e-mail, public view of MySite (link), etc… The problem I am running into is that a Security Group is considered a ‘user’. I need to query AD to iterate through the group to return certain member attributes, as mentioned above. Has anyone done this before, and if so, would you mind sharing it with me?

From what I have gathered so far, an ADSI connection has to be made to Active Directory to get the group ‘object’, then using an LDAP query, retrieve the list of members, specifying which attributes to return. The theory part is the easiest – need some help with the syntax/procedure for doing this in C#.

This page from MSDN:
lists out several dozen different tasks that you might want to perform with AD. You should be able to use the examples of Enumerating users  in a group  as well as Properties: Reading properties on directory  objects to accomplish what you need to do.
