Group based restrictions - Skype for Business RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    One of our customer is using Skye for Business 2016 on-premises.

    They have one group called ex:  "TopManagement"  10 members in this group. 

    Customer requirement is  they don't want to allow any other users able to contact the "TopManagement" users using Skpe call or IM or presence due to their internal security and policies.  Only members in "TopManagement" can able to communicate with each other.  

    Is there any way to achieve the same, whether it is doable or not.

    Appreciate any help or guidance how to achieve the same would be great help.

    Thanks,

    Abul

  • Hi Abul, you could place the top management users in a different address book which would prevent non management users from being able to search for them in the Skype for Business client. This doesn't completely prevent the ability for them to be communicate with however, for that you would need intermediate software from for example AGAT who provide the functionality you need. To segregate people into different address books you can use the msRTCSIP-GroupingID in Active Directory, an example tool that can help implement this is the following:
