[Powershell] MemberOf - How to only show groups beginning with '@'

Hi all,

I'm using...

Get-ADuser $UserID -property MemberOf | % {$_.MemberOf | Get-ADGroup | select Name | sort name}

...to nicely list all the of the Active Directory groups that a user is a member of, in an easy-to-read format.

I'm trying to only list the groups that begin with an @ sign.

So instead of...

@Group 1
@Group 2
Group 3
Group 4

...I would get just...

@Group 1
@Group 2

I'm then looking to remove these groups from the user's account.

So, in summary;

  • Get only the MemberOf groups beginning with @, for a user
  • remove user from these groups

How would I go about this? I've been playing for a while, but have got no further than the script above.

Thank you,

I can list all AD groups beginning with @ by using...

Get-ADGroup -Filter {name -like "@*"} -Properties Description | select Name | sort name

... so maybe there's a way to pipe this list to Remove-ADGroupMember?

Anyone?

So far I've got...

Get-ADuser [USERID] -property MemberOf | % {$_.MemberOf | Get-ADGroup | select Name | sort name}

... to show all of the groups a user is a member of, and...

Get-ADGroup -Filter {name -like "@*"} -Properties Description | select Name | sort name

... to show all groups that exist with @ at the start of them.

How do I combine the two?

If I use...

Get-ADuser [USERID] -property MemberOf | % {$_.MemberOf | Get-ADGroup -Filter {name -like "@*"} -Properties Description | select Name | sort name}

... I get error "The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the command"

Ah, I think I got it...

Get-ADGroup -Filter 'name -like "Foo*"' | Remove-ADGroupMember -identity JoeBloggs

... removes all Active Directory 'Member Of' groups beginning with 'Foo' from user 'JoeBloggs'.

Lovely.
