Analyze SharePoint Permissions

Reporting on permissions in SharePoint can be complex and time-consuming task. SPDocKit allows administrators to drill down and view all permissions, explore permissions history, and create site and user specific reports.


SharePoint Permissions Explorer

With Permissions Explorer, system administrators can explore SharePoint permissions settings. Besides history data, review live permissions in realtime, without loading them, just choose the desired SharePoint object and start exploring.


Create Reports on SharePoint Permissions

SharePoint administrators have to deal with permissions given directly to Active Directory users, Active Directory groups, SharePoint groups, users from custom identity providers, and others. On top of that, every single site, list, document library, and list item can potentially have unique permissions. To keep track of all these permissions, create a specific report and export it in wanted format – view some samples and list of all reports.

User Reports - detailed report on SharePoint user permissions details

Site and User Specific Reports

SPDocKit helps you explore permissions given to users and groups. For example, who has Full control or Limited Access? With our built-in reports and filters you do not need to look anywhere else: all the user or site SharePoint permissions are visible on a single report page.
Subsite Hierarchy – shows hierarchical permissions overview across the selected subsite

Hierarchical Permissions

With the growth of a SharePoint site over time, organizing permissions can become quite difficult. The hierarchical permissions reports give a detailed overview of tree and leaf connections so you can reduce clutter. Check out the Site Collection, Subsite, and List hierarchy.
Cleanup Report – this report crawls the selected Site Collections and shows you groups without assigned permissions

Permissions Cleanup Reports

Over time, even the best-organized SharePoint portal can turn into an unmanageable pile of documents and data. Knowing which groups have no users, and which users are orphaned or have no permissions can take hours and hours of work. With the permissions cleanup reports, this job is done accurately in a matter of minutes.

Compare Wizard and Alerts

SPDocKit helps you compare permissions between sites, lists and list items, users, and groups using a simple yet powerful wizard. In addition, you can set up alerts and receive email notifications each time a snapshot is created and a change in permissions is detected. Using these features, you can easily examine differences and stay up-to-date with all the changes in your environment.

You can choose between following compare options:

  • Object-to-Object: Compare permissions for any two selected SharePoint objects. Choose the real-time state or the (historical) state saved in a snapshot.
  • Permission Differences: Track all the permission changes in the entire site collection (to the list item level). This can help you detect whether permission inheritances have been broken or restored, whether the permissions have been granted or removed, and more.
  • Group to Group: Compare members in two different groups. This is useful for troubleshooting permissions or finding identical SharePoint or AD groups.
  • Group Membership: Track whether some changes occurred in group memberships at different points of time (for SharePoint and AD groups).
