Scripting Games – Filter early again

Grading the scripts in Event 4 and the one thing that jumps out is the amount of unnecessary data being carried through the scripts

You were asked for 7 properties off 20 random users

Get-ADUser has a –properties parameter. USE it to restrict the properties you return. You don’t NEED all the other properties

Next select you 20 users as soon as possible

get-aduser | get-random

will do that.  You can then format just the few properties you need on the 20 objects you have left
