Is there a way to list specific user profiles instead all the users? Ex: List all the accounts starting with IT.

It should list all the users with ITUser1,ITUser2, ect....

The following script shows how to retrieve all user profiles. Thanks for any suggestions.

$mySiteUrl = "http://www.bing.com"

#Get site objects and connect to User Profile Manager service
$site = Get-SPSite $mySiteUrl
$context = Get-SPServiceContext $site
$profileManager = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager($context) 
$profiles = $profileManager.GetEnumerator()

foreach ($up in $profiles) {


You can use the Where cmdlet to filter the users.

$profiles = $profileManager.GetEnumerator() | Where {$_.name -like "IT*"}

Note: This does the filtering after retrieving the full list.


$profiles = $profileManager.GetEnumerator() | Where {$_.MultiloginAccounts -like "domainname\adminID*"}
  • Thank you Ryan. I didn't have a chance to try it out until today, and it works. Here are the syntax: profiles = $profileManager.GetEnumerator() | Where {$_.MultiloginAccounts -like "domainname\adminID*"} – – user751119 Apr 18 '13 at 16:53
