SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In SP2010 we have an option to check user permission incase user has many permission levels. How do we achieve the same in SP2007? I did install Microsoft SharePoint Administration Toolkit for it as mentioned in microsoft site (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-sharepoint-services-help/check-permissions-for-a-user-or-group-HA010362860.aspx) but I cant see the option anywhere in Site setting.

Can anyone please help me incase I've missed something in between?

Thanks in advance, Lav

Check this tool on Codeplex: http://sushi.codeplex.com/

This can give you the security report. Works very well for SharePoint 2007.

There's no way to accomplish this out of the box either through the UI or with SharePoint Designer.

+1 for SharePoint SUSHI but we found it inadequate to our needs and decided that we needed to purchase a management tool. There are many available, all good and we settled on Axceler ControlPoint. Part of the reason to buy a tool instead of using SUSHI was the requirement to clone user permissions from one user to another in addition to the detailed reporting that you described.

I understood the issue later. We can perform permission management using Microsoft SharePoint Administration Toolkit. My mistake was that I copy pasted addsolution and deploysolution commands into command prompt resulting in toolkit not getting installed properly. FYI we'll need April CU for the toolkit to work properly. –  Lav Dec 26 '11 at 3:43

Did you try activating the feature for this using the stsadm command?

1.At the command prompt, run stsadm.exe –o addsolution –filename “C:\Program Files\Microsoft\SPAdministrationToolkit\PermissionReporting\PermissionReporting.wsp” to add the solution file to the farm solution store.

2.Run stsadm.exe –o deploysolution –name PermissionReporting.wsp –immediate -allowgacdeployment to deploy the solution to the farm.

3.Run stsadm.exe –o activatefeature –name PermissionReporting to activate the feature.
