Issue/Introduction

Question:

How to export attributes such as GlobalUsername and FullName of all Global users from provisioning directory?

Answer:

We can use the ETAUTIL command to list Global User name and Full name attributes of global users.

etautil -u <imadmin> -p <password> select 'eTGlobalUserContainerName=Global Users,eTNamespaceName=CommonObjects' eTGlobalUser eTGlobalUserName=* list eTGlobalUserName eTFullName

We can write the result to a file 

etautil -u <imadmin> -p <password> select 'eTGlobalUserContainerName=Global Users,eTNamespaceName=CommonObjects' eTGlobalUser eTGlobalUserName=* list eTGlobalUserName eTFullName >>filename

If there is a huge number of users, the above command could affect the performance of Provisioning server.

We can even get all the results with  eTGlobalUserName starts with a Character or String (To get all users whose username starts with 'a')

etautil -u <imadmin> -p <password> select 'eTGlobalUserContainerName=Global Users,eTNamespaceName=CommonObjects' eTGlobalUser eTGlobalUserName=a* list eTGlobalUserName eTFullName >>filename.csv

 

Replace the <imadmin> with Provisioning Directory admin Id such as superadmin or etaadmin

Replace the <password> with the imadmin password
