Listing contents of Active Directory Organization Units with powershell

Active Directory Organization Units (OUs) are objects created to organize users, groups or computers in a Domain. It is used to group AD objects to meet the needs of the organization and to facilitate management (especially Group Policy).
I will mention about the Active Directory Organization Unit (OU) structure and how to list how many User and Computer accounts in an Organization Unit (OU) with the help of Powershell Scripts In this essay.

It is possible for you to see your current Active Directory structure and how many user objects are stored in each OU by using the following command.

Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Properties CanonicalName -Filter * | Sort-Object CanonicalName |
ForEach-Object {
[pscustomobject]@{
Name = Split-Path $_.CanonicalName -Leaf
CanonicalName = $_.CanonicalName
UserCount = @(Get-AdUser -Filter * -SearchBase $_.DistinguishedName -SearchScope OneLevel).Count 
}}

Organization Unit

You can see your Active Directory structure and how many user and computer objects are stored in an OU by using the following command.

$results = Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Properties CanonicalName -Filter * | Sort-Object CanonicalName |
ForEach-Object {
[pscustomobject]@{
Name = Split-Path $_.CanonicalName -Leaf
CanonicalName = $_.CanonicalName
UserCount = @(Get-AdUser -Filter * -SearchBase $_.DistinguishedName -SearchScope OneLevel).Count
}}

Organization Unit

You can take a printout of your Active Directory structure including how many user objects are stored in an OU to a TXT or CSV under the C:\ directory by using the following command.

$results = Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Properties CanonicalName -Filter * | Sort-Object CanonicalName |
ForEach-Object {
[pscustomobject]@{
Name = Split-Path $_.CanonicalName -Leaf
CanonicalName = $_.CanonicalName
UserCount = @(Get-AdUser -Filter * -SearchBase $_.DistinguishedName -SearchScope OneLevel).Count
ComputerCount = @(Get-AdComputer -Filter * -SearchBase $_.DistinguishedName -SearchScope OneLevel).Count
}}
$results | Out-File C:\Export_User.txt -Encoding UTF8
