By default, the following ControlPoint analyses show list items, even those to which a ControlPoint user does not have permissions:
·Activity by User and
·Activity by Document
·Site Lists and Libraries Storage
The ControlPoint Application Administrator can, however, tighten security trimming so that only ControlPoint users who are site collection administrators can see list items in these analyses by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Permissions Needed to See List Items in Reports from SITE to COLLECTION.
One of the user groups that is created in the ControlPoint Configuration Site when ControlPoint is first installed is intended for business users (Site Administrators) who use ControlPoint to manage their own sites. See Making ControlPoint Available to Business Users (Site Administrators) in the ControlPoint User's Guide.
The default name that ControlPoint assigns to this group is Business Administrators. Because of special configuration requirements, if a different name is assigned to this group then the ControlPoint Application Administrator must update the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Business Administrators Group Name with the new name so that ControlPoint will continue to recognize it.
NOTE: This is an Advanced Setting.
These configuration settings display in the ControlPoint Settings list under the category Discovery Performance.
When ControlPoint is first installed, the Nightly Discovery timer job is disabled by default. If the ControlPoint Discovery Service has not been configured*, operations and parameters which depend on data collected by the Discovery process are disabled. These include:
·Site Collection Activity Analysis
·the following ControlPoint analysis parameters (where applicable):
§the Use cached data option
§the Site Collection Storage Analysis View storage for option.
ControlPoint Application Administrators can choose to enable the Nightly Discovery job (via SharePoint Central Administration) or run Discovery manually. Once Discovery has run at least once, ControlPoint Application Administrators may choose to enable the applicable operations and parameters by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Show Menu Items That Require Discovery from False to True.
*When the ControlPoint Discovery Service is configured, the value of this setting is set to True automatically.
