Duplicate User Permissions is a ControlPoint action that lets you copy the permissions of one SharePoint user to one or more others. Permissions can be copied for multiple site collections in a farm or Web application, or for individual site collections and sites.
EXCEPTIONS: You cannot duplicate Site Collection Administrator privileges using this action. You also cannot duplicate permissions that were granted via an Active Directory group (as an alternative, you can simply add the new user(s) to the Active Directory group).
All of a user's permissions for a site collection, including any unique permissions for sites, lists, and libraries, and items are copied. .
NOTE: If your ultimate goal is to delete a user after copying his or her permissions to another user (for example, if the user is leaving the department or company and is being replaced by someone else), you can do so as part of the procedure for Deleting User Permissions.
To duplicate a user's permissions:
2Choose Users and Security > Duplicate User Permissions.
3Complete the Parameters section as follows:
a)For Model User Name, select the user(s) whose permissions you want to duplicate.
NOTE: Make sure that the permissions of the user you want to use as the model are appropriate for the target user(s). Remember that you can review the permissions of the model before continuing. If you entered the name of more than model user, the permissions of every one of those users (if different) will be assigned to the target user(s).
b)For Duplicate Permissions To, select the target user(s).
c)If you want permissions of the model user(s) to replace those of the target user(s), check the Delete existing permissions from target box.
NOTE: If you leave this box unchecked, model user permissions will be added to any existing permissions.
Now you can either:
·run the operation immediately (by clicking the [Run Now] button)
If you chose the Run Now, option, after the operation has been processed:
·a confirmation message displays at the top of the page, and
·a ControlPoint Task Audit is generated for the operation and displays in the Results section.
If you schedule the operation, a link to the Task Audit is included in the scheduled action notification email.
