Analyze SharePoint Permissions

Auditing SharePoint permissions can be a 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 historic data, review live permissions in real time, without loading them, just choose the desired SharePoint object and start exploring.


Create Reports on SharePoint Permissions

Share Point administrators have to deal with permissions given directly to Active Directory users, Active Directory groups, SharePoint groups, etc. On top of that, every single site, list, document library, and list item can potentially have unique permissions. SPDocKit reports will help you get a detailed permissions overview on your farm.

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.

SharePoint Security and Governance Compliance

Plan your permissions strategy carefully—use SPDocKit reports for a detailed analysis and to ensure compliance with your organization’s security and governance policies.

Cleanup Report – this report crawls the selected Site Collections and shows you groups without assigned permissions

Permissions Cleanup Reports

Knowing which groups have no users, finding orphaned users or groups with disabled owners can take hours. With these reports, the job is done accurately in a matter of minutes. Use the Cleanup wizard to keep your farm permissions healthy.
Directly Assigned Permissions Report - avoid granting permissions to individuals, and work with groups instead. These reports guide you through permissions management best practices

Unique Permissions Health Check

Find users with directly assigned permissions, as well as lists, list items and folders with unique permissions. Analyze and then organize, and segment your content wisely. These reports guide you through some permissions management best practices.
Permissions Audit Report - check a complete log of all permissions changes on a specific site collection.

Audit Permission Changes

Get a complete log of all permissions changes on a specific site collection in a given time period. Filter logs by time period, user who executed permission changes, type of an action or by the object (track changes to the list item level). Knowing who has performed which action might be crucial for security management and your company’s regulatory compliance.

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.

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).
