Count active directory group members

This post is also available in: Polish

To find information about number of members in Active Directory group, you should use CMDlet:


Get-ADGroupMember -Identity "SomeGroup" | Measure-Object | select -ExpandProperty Count

But if you want to get list of all grups in  your Active Directory with information about how many members are in this group, then you should use below example:

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADGroup -Filter * |
foreach {
 New-Object -TypeName psobject -Property @{
 GroupName = $_.Name
 MemberCount = Get-ADGroupMember -Identity "$($_.samAccountName)" | Measure-Object | select -ExpandProperty Count
} | sort MemberCount


As a output you will get list of names of all groups and how many members are in each group.

To save these information to file, change below

 | sort MemberCount


| sort MemberCount  | Export-Csv  -Path d:\scripts\ADGroupsMemberCount.csv  -NoTypeInformation
