Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>$departmentResourceProperty = Get-ADResourceProperty Department
$resourceCondition = "(@RESOURCE." + $departmentResourceProperty.Name + " Contains {`"Finance`"})"
New-ADCentralAccessRule "Finance Documents Rule" -ResourceCondition $resourceCondition

Description


Create a new central access rule named "Finance Documents Rule" with a new resource condition. The resource condition scopes the resources to ones containing the value 'Finance' in their 'Department' resource property.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>$countryClaimType = Get-ADClaimType Country;
$departmentClaimType = Get-ADClaimType Department;
$countryResourceProperty = Get-ADResourceProperty Country;
$departmentResourceProperty = Get-ADResourceProperty Department;
$financeException = Get-ADGroup FinanceException;
$financeAdmin = Get-ADGroup FinanceAdmin;

$resourceCondition = "(@RESOURCE." + $departmentResourceProperty.Name + " Contains {`"Finance`"})"

$currentAcl = "O:SYG:SYD:AR(A;;FA;;;OW)(A;;FA;;;BA)(A;;0x1200a9;;;" + $financeException.SID.Value + ")(A;;0x1301bf;;;" + $financeAdmin.SID.Value + ")(A;;FA;;;SY)(XA;;0x1200a9;;;AU;((@USER." + $countryClaimType.Name + " Any_of @RESOURCE." + $countryResourceProperty.Name + ") && (@USER." + $departmentClaimType.Name + " Any_of @RESOURCE." + $departmentResourceProperty.Name + ")))";

Set-ADCentralAccessRule "Finance Documents Rule" -ResourceCondition $resourceCondition -CurrentAcl $currentAcl

Description


Create a new central access rule named "Finance Documents Rule" with a new resource condition and new permissions.

The new rule specifies that documents should only be read by members of the Finance department. Members of the Finance department should only be able to access documents in their own country. Only Finance Administrators should have write access. The rule allows an exception for members of the FinanceException group. This group will have read access.

Targeting:

Resource.Department Contains Finance

Access rules:

Allow Read User.Country=Resource.Country AND User.department = Resource.Department

Allow Full control User.MemberOf(FinanceAdmin)

Allow Read User.Country=Resource.Country AND User.department = Resource.DepartmentAllow Read User.MemberOf(FinanceException)

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

C:\PS>Get-ADCentralAccessPolicy "Finance Policy" | New-ADCentralAccessPolicy "Human Resources Policy" -Description "For the Human Resources Department."

Description


Create a new central access policy named "Human Resources Policy" using the property values from 'Finance Policy', and set the description to "For the Human Resources Department."

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the name of the object. This parameter sets the Name property of the Active Directory object. The LDAP Display Name (ldapDisplayName) of this property is "name".

The following example shows how to set this parameter to a name string.

-Name "Finance Policy"

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AuthType

Specifies the authentication method to use. Possible values for this parameter include:

Negotiate or 0

Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

The following example shows how to set this parameter to Basic.

-AuthType Basic

Type:ADAuthType
Parameter Sets:Negotiate, Basic
Position:Named
Default value:Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.AuthType.Negotiate
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies the user account credentials to use to perform this task. The default credentials are the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory PowerShell provider drive. If the cmdlet is run from such a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

To specify this parameter, you can type a user name, such as "User1" or "Domain01\User01" or you can specify a PSCredential object. If you specify a user name for this parameter, the cmdlet prompts for a password.

You can also create a PSCredential object by using a script or by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. You can then set the Credential parameter to the PSCredential object The following example shows how to create credentials.

$AdminCredentials = Get-Credential "Domain01\User01"

The following shows how to set the Credential parameter to these credentials.

-Credential $AdminCredentials

If the acting credentials do not have directory-level permission to perform the task, Active Directory PowerShell returns a terminating error.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Description

Specifies a description of the object. This parameter sets the value of the Description property for the object. The LDAP Display Name (ldapDisplayName) for this property is "description".

The following example shows how to set this parameter to a sample description.

-Description "Description of the object"

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Instance

Specifies an instance of an Active Directory object to use as a template for a new Active Directory object.

You can use an instance of an existing Active Directory object as a template or you can construct a new Active Directory object by using the Windows PowerShell command line or by using a script. The following examples show how to use these two methods to create a new Active Directory object.

Method 1: Use an existing Active Directory object as a template for a new object. To retrieve an instance of an existing Active Directory object, use a cmdlet such as Get-ADObject. Then provide this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADObject cmdlet to create a new Active Directory object. You can override property values of the new object by setting the appropriate parameters.

$objectInstance = Get-ADObject -Identity saraDavisDesktop

New-ADObject -Name "ellenAdamsDesktop" -Instance $ObjectInstance -Type "computer"

Method 2: Create a new ADObject and set the property values by using the Windows PowerShell command line interface. Then pass this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADObject cmdlet to create the new Active Directory object.

$objectInstance = new-object Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADObject $objectInstance.Description = "Ellen Adams New Computer" New-ADObject -Name ellenAdamsDesktop -Instance $ObjectInstance -Type computer

Note: Specified attributes are not validated, so attempting to set attributes that do not exist or cannot be set will raise an error.

Type:ADCentralAccessPolicy
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns the new or modified object. By default (i.e. if -PassThru is not specified), this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ProtectedFromAccidentalDeletion

Specifies whether to prevent the object from being deleted. When this property is set to true, you cannot delete the corresponding object without changing the value of the property. Possible values for this parameter include:

$false or 0

$true or 1

The following example shows how to set this parameter to true.

-ProtectedFromAccidentalDeletion $true

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Server

Specifies the Active Directory Domain Services instance to connect to, by providing one of the following values for a corresponding domain name or directory server. The service may be any of the following: Active Directory Lightweight Domain Services, Active Directory Domain Services or Active Directory Snapshot instance.

Domain name values:

Fully qualified domain name

NetBIOS name

Example: corp-DC12

Fully qualified directory server name and port

Example: corp-DC12.corp.contoso.com:3268

The default value for the Server parameter is determined by one of the following methods in the order that they are listed:

-By using Server value from objects passed through the pipeline.

-By using the server information associated with the Active Directory PowerShell provider drive, when running under that drive.

-By using the domain of the computer running Powershell.

The following example shows how to specify a full qualified domain name as the parameter value.
