ensure user sid to user powershell csom

Regular Contributor

 

I have written the following script which collate all the sites in a list along with some of the properties as field column values in a list. However, when the execution hits 

$objSID = New-Object System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier($SID) it gives an issue saying

 Exception calling ".ctor" with "1" argument(s): "Value was invalid.

 

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client")
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime")
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.UserProfiles")

$SiteURL = "https://<site url>"
$ListName = "<list Name>"

Try {
$Cred= Get-Credential
$Credentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($Cred.Username, $Cred.Password)

#Setup the context
$Ctx = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($SiteURL)
$Ctx.Credentials = $Credentials
#Get the List
$List = $Ctx.Web.Lists.GetByTitle($ListName)
$Ctx.Load($List)
$Ctx.ExecuteQuery()

Get-SPOSite -Limit ALL| % { Get-SPOSite -Detailed -Identity $_.URL | %{

$ListItemInfo = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ListItemCreationInformation
$ListItem = $List.AddItem($ListItemInfo)

$ListItem["Title"] = $_.Title
$ListItem["DisableSharingForNonOwnersStatus"] = $_.DisableSharingForNonOwnersStatus
$ListItem["LastContentModifiedDate"] = $_.LastContentModifiedDate
$ListItem["Status"] = $_.Status
#$ListItem["Owner"] = $_.Owner


$SID =$_.Owner
$objSID = New-Object System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier($SID)
$objUser = $objSID.Translate([System.Security.Principal.NTAccount])
Write-Host "Resolved user name: " $objUser.Value

$ListItem["Owner"] =$Ctx.Web.EnsureUser($objUser.Value);

$ListItem["SharingCapability"] = $_.SharingCapability
$ListItem["ConditionalAccessPolicy"] = $_.ConditionalAccessPolicy
$ListItem["Url"] = $_.Url
$ListItem.Update()
$Ctx.ExecuteQuery()
Write-host "New Item $_.Title Added to the List!" -ForegroundColor Green

}
}}
Catch {
write-host -f Red "Error Adding Items to List!" $_.Exception.Message
}

I'm not a Developer but this might help

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.security.principal.securityidentifier?view=netfra...

 

In reading up it's not asking for the SID in string but in SDDL format

Let me know if this helps

I'm not a Developer but here's the reference to the object you're trying to work with

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.security.principal.securityidentifier?view=netfra...

 

A quick glance looks like it wants the SID in SDDL format.   Take a look at the value of the SID returned from the earlier object and see if it matches this format described here

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/secauthz/security-descriptor-string-format

 

Have you verified that this pipeline is returning the objects you expect:

 

Get-SPOSite -Limit ALL| % { Get-SPOSite -Detailed -Identity $_.URL}
