Indicates whether the corresponding Active Directory group for a UNIX profile is in a different Active Directory forest than the forest associated with the group profile in the zone.


bool IsForeign {get;}

Property value

Returns true if the UNIX profile is associated with an Active Directory group in a different forest.


If the Active Directory group is in a different forest than the one associated with a top‑level Centrify data object (Cims object), the property returns true.

Note:   This property is always false for newly-created groups before the group object is committed to Active Directory.


The following code sample illustrates using IsForeign in a script:

'Get the zone object
Set objZone = cims.GetZone("")
'Check the forest for groups in the zone
For each profile in objZone.GetGroupUnixProfiles
if profile.IsForeign then
      wScript.Echo profile.Name
   end if
