Windows ACL permissions can be quite confusing and it can be hard to understand why some users have access to more than others. PowerShell allows you to export AD ACL permission settings without having the need for using ADSIEdit or other obscure tools, which makes understanding these permissions much easier.
The “powershell get permissions on folder and subfolders” is a PowerShell command that can be used to export AD ACL permissions.
When you need to tighten an account’s security, an Active Directory ACL permissions report is a great place to start. Furthermore, such a report might be quite useful when comparing AD ACL permissions across accounts. This post will teach you how to use PowerShell to export AD ACL permissions to CSV and HTML.
Do all of the organization’s user accounts have the appropriate AD permissions? It’s a good idea to double-check for security reasons and:
- Take control of who has access to what information.
- Excessive permissions should be restricted.
- Reduce the chances of a data leak.
- Ensure that everything is in order.
The ADACLScan.ps1 PowerShell script is a GUI-based utility for creating reports on Active Directory access control lists (ACLs) and system access control lists (SACLs). The script is written fully in PowerShell.
The PowerShell script has a lot of functionality, which is fantastic. However, we prefer to employ the following features:
- Permissions for AD ACLs may be exported to a CSV file.
- Permissions from AD ACLs may be exported to HTML.
Let’s look at two service accounts’ AD ACL permissions. svc-adds and svc-adds1 are the service accounts.
Prepare a PowerShell script for ADALScan.
On the C: disk, create two folders:
Download the ADACLScan.ps1 PowerShell script (direct) or the ADACLScan.ps1 PowerShell script (direct) (GitHub). It should be saved in the C:scripts folder. The ACL permissions will be exported and saved to the C:temp folder.
Run the PowerShell script ADALScan.
PowerShell should be run as an administrator. Change the path of the scripts folder after that. Run the script ADACLScan.ps1 after that.
cd c:scripts PS C:> .ADACLScan.ps1.ADACLScan.ps1.ADACLScan.ps1.ADACLScan.ps
The window for the AD SCL Scanner will appear.
Click Domain > All Objects > Connect in the AD ACL Scanner box.
We’ll look at how to export AD ACL permissions in the following several stages.
With PowerShell, you may export AD ACL permissions.
With a PowerShell script, you may export AD ACL permissions to:
Permissions for AD ACLs may be exported to a CSV file.
Go to the user account page. Fill in the CSV file location C:temp by clicking CSV file. Click the Scan button to start the scan.
It’s the user account svc-adds in our case.
Let’s export AD ACLs to a CSV file again, but this time from the svc-adds1 user account.
In the C:temp folder, there will be two CSV files.
Export ACL permissions from Active Directory to an HTML file
Go to the user account page. Select HTML. Click the Scan button to start the scan.
Click the Export button.
C:tempaccountname.htm is the file and path name. Click the OK button.
Apart from the CSV data, the C:temp folder will include two HTML files.
Open the HTML file for the ACL report (svd-adds).
Let’s look at the HTML file for the second ACL report (svc-adds1).
That concludes our discussion.
You learnt how to use PowerShell to export AD ACL permissions to a CSV file. To export ACL permissions, you’ll need the ADACLScan.ps1 PowerShell script. It’s a fantastic script that does exactly what it should.
