Use the GetThisOrganizationRoot procedure of the Managed Active Directory namespace to return the owning organization of the supplied object. The owning organization will be either the hosting organization, a reseller, or a customer. The supplied object may be any member of the owning org. If you call this procedure and supply an object that happens to be an owning organization, the return value is the same as the supplied object.
To find the hosting organization that owns a reseller, or the reseller that owns a customer, call GetForeignOwnerOrg on the reseller or customer root organization.
This call is implemented internally by checking the other
WellKnownObjects property of the containing organizational unit of
the object (or the object itself, if it is an organizational unit).
If the object is an organizational unit, it's organization root can
be bound to as
This procedure expects to be called with impersonate="1". The procedure impersonates the caller.
<request> <procedure> <execute namespace="Managed Active Directory" procedure="GetThisOrganizationRoot" impersonate="1"> <executeData> <path>LDAP://cn=HostingUser,ou=Hosting,dc=contoso01,dc=com</path> </executeData> <after source="executeData" destination="data" /> </execute> </procedure> </request>
The following input is valid for this request:
Use the <path> element to specify the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) path of the object for which you want to find the root organization.
<path>LDAP://LDAP path of the root organization</group>
By using the <preferredDomainController> element, you can specify the domain controller that you want to use for this request. Using a single preferred domain controller eliminates replication delays that arise between multiple controllers.
<preferredDomainController>your domain controller</preferredDomainController>
This procedure returns the LDAP path of the owning organization.
