Password Control can be extended by adding VBS script files in the “Scripts” folder of the Password Control application directory. These Scripts will appear in a “Tools” menu in the Password Control application.
Example 1 – Adding a “Delete User” option
In this example we will write a VBS Script to delete the selected user account in Password Control. Password Control will enumerate all the VBS files in the “Scripts” folder and display them as options in the tools menu. Password Control will pass the ADsPath of the current user to the script, allowing us to know which user is currently selected.
ADsPath = wscript.arguments.named.item("ADsPath")
' Validate that a user was selected
if ADsPath = "" then
msgbox "Please type the name of the user to delete in the Password Control username textbox",vbOkOnly+vbExclamation,"Username required"
' Bind to the user object
set objUser = getobject(ADsPath)
' Confirm that the user account is to be deleted
result = msgbox("Are you sure you want to delete this user account?" & vbcrlf & _
if result = vbYes then
' Bind to the container object (organizational unit)
set objContainer = getobject(objUser.Parent)
' Delete the user account
objContainer.Delete "user","cn=" & objUser.cn
msgbox "User account deleted successfully",vbOkOnly+vbInformation
Example 2 – Adding a shortcut to Active Directory Users and Computers
In this example we don’t need to verify if a valid user has been selected in Password Control.
set objShell = createobject("Wscript.Shell")
' Run Active Directory Users & Computers MMC
