This is great, how do you run this script?

Here's a quick PowerShell script I wrote that will create a CSV file. The output format is one line for each combination of app/group or app/user, so if you open the output file in Excel and turn on autofilter, you can select an app from the drop down and see all users and groups to which the app is published, or select a user or group and see all apps that are published to that user or group.

$outfile = ".\PubAppsUsersAndGroups.csv"

if (test-path $outfile) {remove-item $outfile}

add-content $outfile "AppDN,UserOrGroup,Name"

$farm = new-object -com metaframecom.metaframefarm


foreach ($app in $farm.applications)



$appdn = $app.distinguishedname

write-host $appdn

foreach ($user in $app.users)


$user = $user.aaname + "\" + $user.username

write-host ("-- USER: " + $user)

add-content $outfile ($appdn + ",user," + $user)


foreach ($group in $app.groups)


$group = $group.aaname + "\" + $group.groupname

write-host ("-- GROUP: " + $group)

add-content $outfile ($appdn + ",group," + $group)

Thomas Koetzing has some vb scripts that may do what you're after, in particular appsusers.wsf although you may need to download the entire resource kit (4GEReskit) to get at them. http://www.thomaskoetzing.de

I’m still running PS 4 on Windows 2003. Is there a script or tool I can run to get a list of all the applications w/ which users/groups have access?
