If ControlPoint is used to back up site permissions, you can compare permission changes within a single site, either between current permissions and a backup created at a specific date and time or from two backups created at different dates and times.
The report shows changes to:
·individual user permissions that have been granted directly
·permissions granted to SharePoint and Active Directory groups.
NOTE: Currently, this report does not identify changes to "effective permissions" (which, in SharePoint, refers to permissions granted as a side-effect of a granted permission). That is, changes to an individuals permissions based solely on addition to or deletion from a SharePoint or Active Directory group will not be reflected in report results.
To analyze permissions changes:
1From the Permissions Management left menu, choose Report on Permissions > Permissions Changes.
4In addition to "common" parameters:
§You must select a Compare permissions from and Compare permissions to date and time.
§If you want to view only users whose permissions have changed, check the Show only changes box.
NOTE: If you leave this box unchecked, all users will be included in the report, regardless of whether their permissions have changed.
Now you can:
·run the report immediately (by clicking [Run Now] )
Report results contain the same information as the User Rights section of the Site Permissions Report, except that, for the time period covered by the report:
·permissions that have been deleted are identified by a red D, and
·permissions that have been added are identified by a green A.
