Active Directory Reports FAQs
How do I get reports from Active Directory?
Active Directory is a database that contains objects such as users, computers, groups, and organizational units (OUs). You can organize these objects into OUs to make them easier to manage and utilize a structure for defining permissions and roles.
Over time the objects in Active Directory can contain a lot of information. For example, a user account can have an address, street, phone number, email, display name, city, state, and so on. Trying to review each object and create a report is complicated and very time-consuming.
The AD Pro Toolkit offers AD reporting tools that simplify the process of creating reports on the objects in your Active Directory domains. For example, to create a report on all users and their group membership it would only take 2 mouse clicks. This report will query the Active Directory database for all users and get their group membership details along with other account properties. This would be complicated to do with PowerShell or other scripting tools.
How does the AD Pro Reporting tool work?
The AD reporting tool utilizes Microsoft API and LDAP to query the domain for objects, permissions, and account details. For example, if you select the “Disabled Users” report the tool will query your AD for accounts that have been set to “Account is disabled”. The tool will display details such as the account name, status when the account was created, and when the account was changed. All of these details are stored in the AD database that the tool can pull down to create an easy to read report.
These reports will help you with compliance and auditing requirements. In addition, they will help you to better understand the objects that you have in your Active Directory domain. Over time, you can end up with thousands of objects in your domain, some of which are no longer used or needed. The reporting tool can help you report on these objects and find the ones that are no longer in use.
How do I create a report of Inactive users?
When a user authenticates to the domain the lastlogonTimestamp attribute is updated for the account. This attribute can be used to find inactive users in your domain.
Click on User Reports – > Inactive users for 90 days.
Note: You can also select from 120 days or use the AD Cleanup Tool to enter a specific date.
How do I download a report from Active Directory?
From the AD Pro Reporting Tool click on the export button and select your format.
For example, to export all enabled users to CSV click on User Reports -> Enabled users and click run. When the report is finished click on export -> Export to CSV.
