Analyzing SharePoint Group Membership and Permissions

The SharePoint Groups Report provides details about membership and permissions of SharePoint groups within one or more site collections and/or sites.  

To generate a SharePoint Groups report:

1From the Permissions Management left menu, choose Report on Permissions > Sharepoint group membership and permissions.

2Specify the parameters for your report.

In addition to the "common" parameters for permissions analyses, you can limit results to:

§SharePoint groups whose name include a specific text string

§groups with no members and/or with no permissions or only groups with both members and permissions

You can also choose whether to Include lists and list items in results.

CAUTION:  If you chose to include lists and list items, the report may take significantly longer to run and may generate a much larger set of results.

Now you can:

§run the report immediately (by clicking [Run Now] )


§schedule the report to run at a later time

The SharePoint Group Report consists of the following sections:



Membership Section

The Membership section lists each site collection within the scope or your report.

When expanded the following information displays:

·each SharePoint Group within the site collection

·the No of users in the group.

·a plus sign (+) identifying each group that Has Permissions.

When expanded, each Member login name and Display Name is listed.

Note that an Active Directory group is counted as a single user.  

Permissions Section

The Permissions section lists each site within the scope of your report.

When expand, a Site Security summary row indicates whether site security is Inherited or Unique.  Each SharePoint Group within the site is listed, along with a plus sign (+) identifying each of its permissions.  Any custom permissions levels are recorded in the Other column.
