Queries Active Directory information.

Component Version macOS Windows Linux Server iOS SDK
SystemInfo LDAP 9.3 ❌ No ✅ Yes ❌ No ❌ No ❌ No
MBS( "SystemInfo.ADSystemInfo" )




Returns JSON or error.


Queries Active Directory information.
This call may take a second if a query needs to be sent to server.
Returns JSON with details including UserName, ComputerName, SiteName, DomainShortName, DomainDNSName, ForestDNSName, PDCRoleOwner, SchemaRoleOwner, IsNativeMode, DCNam and DCSiteName.
The result is an empty JSON object in case of no Active Directory in use.

Not useful on server as it would query the Active Directory information for the system user running FileMaker Server and not the information for the user calling the script via PSoS. So better use in FileMaker Pro only.


Query Active Directory details on Windows:

MBS( "SystemInfo.ADSystemInfo" )

Example result:
{ "UserName": "CN=John Doe,OU=2SH User,DC=2SXXX,DC=2S", "ComputerName": "CN=2SMBP16W10,CN=Computers,DC=2SXXX,DC=2S", "SiteName": "Default-First-Site-Name", "DomainShortName": "2SXXX", "DomainDNSName": "2SXXX.2S", "ForestDNSName": "2SXXX.2S", "PDCRoleOwner": "CN=NTDS Settings,CN=2SDCERP,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=2SXXX,DC=2S", "SchemaRoleOwner": "CN=NTDS Settings,CN=2SDCERP,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=2SXXX,DC=2S", "IsNativeMode": true, "DCName": "2SDCSTORAGE.2SXXX.2S", "DCSiteName": "Default-First-Site-Name" }
