We recently upgraded our project to Sitecore9 initial release from 7.2. We were re-compiling our code including latest Sitecore.Kernel. We got this error:

error CS0117: 'Factory' does not contain a definition for 'GetDomain'

for below code:

var domain = Sitecore.Configuration.Factory.GetDomain("extranet");
var allUsers = domain.getUsers();

There is no GetDomain function in Configuration.Factory. I think it got replaced by GetDomainMap. But that doesn't have getUsers() function. Can someone help us how to resolve this?

This should do the trick:

var domain = Sitecore.SecurityModel.DomainManager.GetDomain("extranet");
