Users to Exclude from Reports (EXCLUDEDUSERS)

By default, unless one or more users are specified in the People Picker, all SharePoint users are included in the following ControlPoint analyses:

·Site Permissions

·Comprehensive Permissions


ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, exclude certain users and/or Active Directory groups from these analyses by entering the user account name(s) as the Value for the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Users to Exclude from Reports.  Enter multiple account names as a comma-separated list.

You may, for example, want to exclude common system accounts such as Sharepoint\System and NTAuthority\Authenticated Users.  

NOTE:  You must exclude users based on full account names .

Maximum Number of Users to Act On (MAXUSERSFORACTION)

By default, when you want to run a ControlPoint action that operates on SharePoint users, up to two thousand (2000) users may be included in the operation, as determined by the People Picker entry.  Before running the action, ControlPoint evaluates the number of users included in the People Picker entry, and if it exceeds the maximum number allowed, the action is not carried out and the following message is recorded in the ControlPoint Task Audit:

The number of users ([numusers]) has exceeded the allowable threshold of [maxusers].

This setting is especially useful as a "safety net" when an operation allows wildcards to be used in the People Picker and could potentially act on more users than intended.

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, specify a different limit by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Maximum Number of Users to Act on.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.


NOTE:  This setting does not apply to users within the scope of a SharePoint User Profile property selection, for which no maximum is enforced.


CSV Delimiter Character (CSVDELIMETER)

By default, ControlPoint uses a comma (,) as a delimiter to separate data in search and analysis results when the Download Report Data as CSV option is used.  ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, specify a different delimiter to use by modifying the Value of the ControlPoint Setting CSV Delimiter Character.  (This might be necessary if some of the content in analysis results—such as site names—contain commas.)

Note that this setting does not apply when the CSV (comma delimited) option in selected from the report toolbar drop-down.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.


NOTE:  If you want to use a tab for the delimiter, enter TAB.

If you use a delimiter other than a comma and plan to use Excel as your analysis tool, when performing the Download Report Data as CSV operation, choose the [Save] option then import the saved file into Excel.  If you try to open the csv file directly in Excel, only commas will be recognized as delimiters.
