One of the key reports that IT security managers seek often is Nested Group Membership report. With ADManager Plus, you can have this report generated automatically (at the time specified by you) and delivered to your inbox.
Extracting a complete group membership report using LDAP query or scripting technique is not so easy; one cannot go about querying an object's "member of" attribute to get the names of every associated group. An Active Directory object, such as a user or group (for which group membership is queried), might very well have transitive membership with several groups by inheritance. For example, a user might gain indirect membership with group B while becoming a member of group A, just because A is already a member of B.
That was only a simple example with 2 levels of group memberships. However, when the levels of a group membership go up a few notches, then trailing an object's indirect group memberships becomes extremely tough - even for advanced scripters. Take a look at the following diagram which illustrates this point:
Our "Nested Group Membership" reports tabulates all the groups that a user is member of - whether directly or indirectly - at the click of a button. All you have to do is provide the user name and extract the report.
An important advantage of this report is that you get to view a detailed summary of "members" and "member of" attributes of all the nested groups associated with a given user from one single screen.
Here's where you set up a report generation schedule and provide addresses that this report should be emailed to.
