Maximum Number of Users to Act On (MAXUSERSFORACTION)

By default, when you want to execute 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 executing 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.

 

Hide the "Set User Direct Permissions" Action in Permissions Management (PREVENTUSERPERMS)

By default, the Permissions Management for Site Admins option includes the option to Grant user(s) permissions directly.

Permissions Management DIRECT

However,ControlPoint Application Administrators can hide this option (if, for example, your organization adheres to the SharePoint best practice of allowing permissions to be granted only via SharePoint groups) by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Hide the "Set User Direct Permissions" Action in Permissions Management (PREVENTDIRECTPERMS) from false to true.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

Permissions Management NO DIRECT

Permissions Management DIRECT

 

Prevent Set Site Collection Quotas (PreventSetSCQuota)

By default, a ControlPoint user can set a site collection quota via the Set Site Collection Properties action only if he/she is  a Farm Administrator or has been given elevated privileges via the security override ACTSECOVRW.

Set Site Collection Properties QUOTA

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, allow all ControlPoint users to set quotas for site collections that they manage by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Prevent Set Site Collection Quotas from True to False.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

Config Setting PreventSCQuota

When Prevent Site Collection Quotas is set to Truee (the default value), the Site Collection Quota will not be visible to unauthorized ControlPoint users.

Set Site Collection Properties NO QUOTA

 

Show Nested Active Directory Groups (PROCESSADHIERARCHY)

By default, when you generate a Permissions analysis and choose to Include users with AD group membership, only the top-most group that a user is a member of displays in analysis results (that is, if the user is a member of a subgroup within that group, the path to that subgroup is not shown).  

PROCESSAD_false

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, choose to have the entire group hierarchy (that is, the path to any subgroup of which the user is a member) display in analysis results by changing the Show Nested Active Directory Groups Value from False to True.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

Config Setting SHOWADGROUPS

PROCESSAD_true

NOTE:  When the entire AD hierarchy must be processed, performance may be impacted. Remember that you can also view the full Active Directory hierarchy by opening the AD Group Membership dialog.
