ControlPoint 8.9 - Evaluation Guide

Duplicating a User’s Permissions and Backing Up Permissions

In this scenario, we will duplicate the permissions of a selected user to another user. This operation is useful if, for example, a user has left the company and you want to transfer that user’s permissions to his/her replacement. We will perform this operation on two sites with unique permissions.  As part of the operation, we will back up existing permissions so that we can restore them to their original state.

To Duplicate a User’s Permissions:

1.In the SharePoint Hierarchy, select a site with unique permissions (identified by the Unique site icon icon) , then hold down the CTRL key to select an additional site.

2.Right-click on either site and choose Users and Security > Duplicate User Permissions.
