  • Question

  • What is the easiest way to see what a user has access to on a given site collection?

     

    I've looked through code plex, but would like a nice recommendation. Could be paid product.

     

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    What do you mean by Site Collection here? Do you mean to say that you want to know about a user's permission in all subsites, lists. libraries etc in the entire site collection?

    I suggest you to use securityreport account of admintoolkit. This gives details about effective permissions. You can get it here:

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks,

  • ok, this is a solutions package I see. Whcih is fine, but I have a couple dozen farms. Can I run this from a central server? or does this need to be deployed to every farm?

     

    I couldnt find this from reading the docs.

     

    Thanks,

  • HI,

    You need to run it from central server of every farm only once.

    I hope this will help you out.
