Permissions

Metalogix Essentials Security Manager for SharePoint is designed to analyze and manage permissions, groups/users and levels across multiple site collections and farms. It aims to both simplify cumbersome tasks and provide in-depth analysis of existing security rights from the convenience of your desktop and without installing anything on your SharePoint servers.

Metalogix Essentials Security Manager allows you to:

·Browse, add, edit and delete groups, users, permissions and permission levels in a visual hierarchical structure of site collections, sites, lists and individual items

·One easy to use interface for managing multiple server farms, domains and site collections.

·Copy groups, users, permissions and permission levels between server farms, site collections, sites, lists and individual items across user directories (LDAP, ADFS, RDBMS).

·Manage permissions for multiple objects at the same time

·Compare an object’s permissions to better manage permission templates and identify where permissions do not match the templates

·Analyze a user’s or group’s permissions for any site, list or item

·Analyze which users or groups have permissions for a specific object

·Discover and resolve potential security problems in multi-server farm environments such as sites with no permissions, deleted users with granted permissions, broken chain of permission inheritance, etc

·Transfer roles between users addressing issues such as employee turnover and new hires

·Supports SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013 and SharePoint Online

·And much more
