DESCRIPTION

This module provides procedures related to management of user and group accounts on Windows operating systems. This documentation is reference material describing related commands. For more introductory material and guide, see the Windows Security chapter in the Tcl on Windows online book.

Standard Options

Most commands allow the following options to be specified:

-system SYSTEMNAME Several commands, for example, looking up account names or adding users, may be carried out on a target system other than the local system. The -system option allows specification of the target system. This option defaults to the local system if unspecified.

User and Group Accounts

Note that the twapi_base provides some commonly used commands for mapping between account names and SIDs.

The commands new_user and delete_user allow addition and deletion of user accounts. The commands enable_user, disable_user and unlock_user may be used to change the state of a user account. The command get_user_account_info returns various attributes and properties of a user account. These may be modified through the set_user_account_info function or alternatively, modified individually through the following set of functions: set_user_name, set_user_password, set_user_home_dir, set_user_comment, set_user_script_path, set_user_full_name, set_user_country_code, set_user_profile, set_user_home_dir_drive, set_user_expiration.

Information about global and local groups may be retrieved through the get_global_group_info and get_local_group_info commands. New global groups may be created and deleted through the new_global_group and delete_global_group commands. The equivalent commands for local groups are new_local_group and delete_local_group. Users may be added and removed using the commands add_user_to_global_group, add_member_to_local_group, add_members_to_local_group, remove_user_from_global, remove_member_from_local_group and remove_member_from_local_group.

The rights and privileges associated with accounts can be managed through the get_account_rights, find_accounts_with_right, add_account_rights and remove_account_rights commands.

Enumerating Accounts

There are several commands for enumerating users and groups, including group membership.

get_users Enumerates the locally defined user accounts.
get_global_groups Enumerates the globally defined groups.
get_local_groups Enumerates the locally defined groups.
get_local_group_members Enumerates the members of a local group.
get_global_group_members Enumerates the members of a global group.
get_user_global_groups Enumerates the global groups in which a specific user account has membership.
get_user_local_groups Enumerates the local groups in which a specific user account has direct or indirect membership.

With the exception of get_user_local_groups and get_user_global_groups, all these commands follow the same pattern of invocation and use a standard set of options. Without any optional arguments, the commands return a simple list of user or group names as appropriate. However, the commands also allow retrieval of information with additional detail or in incremental fashion.

To get more detail about about the accounts being returned without making separate calls for each individual account, the -level option may be specified. When this option is specified, the list of accounts returned is a record array with fields that contain the detail values for an item. The argument value passed to the -level option is an integer that indicates the level of detail desired. The valid values for the argument and the specific fields returned in the sublist are dependent on the command and are described in the documentation for the command. See the examples below for sample useage.

On systems (including domains) with a very large number of accounts, it may be better for performance and user responsiveness to retrieve the list in incremental fashion through -resume option. On the initial call to any of the commands, the RESUMEHANDLE value for the option must be specified as 0. The command will then return a list of the form { MOREDATA RESUMEHANDLE COUNT DATA }. In the returned list, MOREDATA is a boolean indicating if there are more accounts to be enumerated. If this value is 1, then the appropriate command can be called again, this time passing RESUMEHANDLE as the value for the -resume option. This process can be repeated as long the MOREDATA field in the returned result is 1. If MOREDATA is 0, there is no more data to be retrieved. The RESUMEHANDLE must be treated as opaque and must not be modified in any way before being passed back in the next call to the command. It is critical that the command be repeated with the correct value of RESUMEHANDLE and only if MOREDATA is 1. The system does not protect against bad values which can crash your application. The other elements returned when the -resume option is used are COUNT and DATA. The former is an estimate of the sum of items returned in this call and those remaining to be returned. Note this is only an estimate and should not be relied on except for rough purposes such as displaying a progress bar. The DATA element is the actual values that are the result of the call. The format of this depends on the use of the -level option. If the -level option was not specified, DATA is a simple list of values (such as user names). If -level was specified to the command, DATA is a record array as described above.

The following sample session demonstrates the use of the two options and the format of the returned data:

(tcl) 63 % get_local_group_members Administrators
Administrator ashok
(tcl) 64 % get_local_group_members Administrators -level 1
-name -comment} {{S-1-5-21-1957994488-1801674531-839522115-500 1 Administrator} {S-1-5-21-1957994488-1801674531-839522115-1003 1 ashok}}
(tcl) 65 % get_local_group_members Administrators -resume 0
0 0 2 {Administrator ashok}
(tcl) 66 % get_local_group_members Administrators -resume 0 -level 1
0 0 4 {{-name -comment} {{S-1-5-21-1957994488-1801674531-839522115-500 1 Administrator} {S-1-5-21-1957994488-1801674531-839522115-1003 1 ashok}}}

Global Account Settings

Certain account settings are applicable across all accounts in a security database, either the local SAM database, or Active Directory in case of domain controllers. The following commands allow for retrieval and modification of these settings.

get_lockout_policy Returns the policy settings for account lockouts, such as lockout duration.
get_password_policy Returns the policy settings for account passwords, such as minimum password length.
set_lockout_policy Modifies the global policy settings for account lockouts.
set_password_policy Modifies the global policy settings for account passwords.

Commands

add_account_rights ACCOUNTNAME RIGHTS ?-system SYSTEMNAME?
Adds the privileges and account rights listed in RIGHTS to the account specified by ACCOUNTNAME. The option -system may be used to specify a system as described in Standard Options.

RIGHTS is a list of privileges and account rights. Refer to Authorization constants in the Windows SDK for valid values. Note: you must use the string form of the privilege or right, for example, SeBatchLogonRight, not SE_BATCH_LOGON_NAME.
add_user_to_global_group GROUPNAME USERNAME ?-system SYSTEMNAME?
Adds the user account specified by USERNAME to the global group GROUPNAME. The option -system may be used to specify a system as described in Standard Options.
add_member_to_local_group GROUPNAME ACCOUNTNAME ?-system SYSTEMNAME? ?-type name|sid?
Adds the account specified by ACCOUNTNAME to the local group GROUPNAME. ACCOUNTNAME may be either a user name or a global group and may include a domain in the form domainname\username.

The option -system may be used to specify a system as described in Standard Options.

If the option -type has the value sid, ACCOUNTNAME is treated as an account SID. By default it treated as an account name.

The command does not raise an error if the specified account is already a member of the group.
add_members_to_local_group GROUP ACCOUNTS ?-system SYSTEMNAME? ?-type name|sid?
Adds the account specified in the list ACCOUNTS to the local group GROUPNAME. ACCOUNTS may contain user accounts and global groups and may include a domain in the form domainname\username. Alternatively, ACCOUNTS may be specified as a list of SID's if the option -type has the value sid.

The option -system may be used to specify a system as described in Standard Options.

Unlike the add_member_from_local_group command, this command raises an error without making any changes if any of the specified accounts does not exist or is not a member of the group. The command does not raise an error if the specified account is already a member of the group.
delete_global_group GROUPNAME ?-system SYSTEMNAME?
Deletes a global group GROUPNAME. Also, deletes any rights associated with the account in the LSA rights database. The option -system may be used to specify a system as described in Standard Options.

-local_groups Returns the local groups of which the account is a member. This includes only groups of which the account is directly a member and does not include indirect membership through a global group which is itself a member of a local group. See get_user_local_groups for a command that will recursively include groups.
-logon_hours Returns a bit string of 1's and 0's corresponding to each hour in the week that the user is allowed to log on. Note the week starts based on GMT time, not local time.

get_user_global_groups ACCOUNT ?-system SYSTEMNAME? ?-all? ?-denyonly?
Returns a list of global groups in which the given user account is a member. Without any options, the command will only return those groups which are not marked as intended for deny only purposes. If the -denyonly option is specified, only such groups are returned. If -all is specified (which also overrides -denyonly if present), both types of groups are included in the returned list.

The option -system may be used to specify a system as described in Standard Options.
get_user_local_groups ACCOUNT ?-system SYSTEMNAME? ?-recurse BOOLEAN?
Returns the local groups in which the given user account is a member. If -recurse is not specified or is specified as false, only the local groups of which the account is directly a member are returned. If -recurse is specified as true, the returned list includes local groups of which the account is indirectly a member through its membership in a global group which is a member of the local group. This differs from the -local_groups option of the get_user_account_info command.

The option -system may be used to specify a system as described in Standard Options.
get_users ?-system SYSTEMNAME?
If no options are specified, returns the list of user accounts on the system. Note the returned list includes only accounts defined on the system, not all accounts that are known to the system.
