Bulk Recertification of Groups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there any way we can bulk recertify groups. Currently users have to manually go to each group that is going to expire and renew them.

    Is there any way where we can create a button on "My Distribution/Security Group" page like "Renew Groups" and then users can select the checkboxes next to the display names of the groups and click on this button. When they click on this button, internally this should set the "Renew Expiration" attribute to true and a MPR should be called to extend the date by an year or so based on the boolean value of this attribute.

    Is this possible? If yes, is there any blog on how to create a custom button on the page.

    Thanks in advance!!

  • Hello,

    no that is not possible out-of-box.

    There might be some magic to to in the sharepoint solution files, but that is not supported.

    Best would be to develop your own WebUI on top of the FIM Service for the recertification process.
    You may then present this UI as a link within the normal portal.

  • I agree with Peter.  This question keeps coming again and again.  Yesterday someone asked about sending bulk email.  These are all related and the simple explanation is NO because FIM processes objects individually.
