Yup, you've found another SharePoint-ism. You'll need to the add the group like you're doing and then update the item in the SiteUserInfoList. We use the following static method: public static void UpdateGroupDescription(SPWeb spWeb, SPGroup group, string descriptionString) { SPListItem item = spWeb.SiteUserInfoList.GetItemById(group.ID); ...

This script should do the trick after few adjustments as its adding new permissions to group which you don't want so you can skip them, function Add-SPPermissionToListGroup { param ($Url, $ListName, $GroupName, $PermissionLevel) $web = Get-SPWeb -Identity $Url $list = $web.Lists.TryGetList($ListName) if ($list -ne $null) { if ...

AFAIK, it's only possible to use getByName in SharePoint 2013, not in 2010. See MSDN reference for more information var groupCollection = clientContext.get_web().get_siteGroups(); visitorsGroup = groupCollection.getByName("SomaGroupName");

You can use AD security groups for setting permissions on Sharepoint sites, lists and items. Some additional recommendations can be found at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc261972.aspx It is possible with some simple permissions planning. You can create Sharepoint group HelpDesk and then set this group to have admin permissions on every site. ...

Prints out all the groups for the SPWeb and the group's role names: using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://server/sites/sitecollection/")) { using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb("test")) { foreach (SPRoleAssignment roleAssignment in web.RoleAssignments) { if (roleAssignment.Member is SPGroup) { ...

Internally, all users resides inside a special list known as "user information list" at the root site (/) of any SharePoint site collection. This list can be accessed through http://yoursitecollection/_catalogs/users/simple.aspx Groups are virtual collections of users against this list maintained inside the SharePoint Content Database and have different ...

You can't count on that number, as it's just the index within the collection. The AssociatedMemberGroup and AssociatedOwnerGroup properties on SPWeb should give you what you're looking for without having to know the actual name of the group.

yes it is, look at this Post or this Video showing how to create contact list for sharepoint 2010 EDIT Just got what you wanted to do If the idea is to just use that list as a web part, then i suggest you to look at Site Users web part and add the web part to the landing page, this web part allows you to configure the SharePoint groups that you ...

You can use SPContext within a "RunWithElevatedPrivileges" block, but objects you get from "SPContext" such as: SPUser, SPWeb, etc. are not running in elevated privilege, they just take the current user security context. So why not just use "scweb" to get to the "Group". Since "scweb" object is initialized within the "RunWithElevatedPrivileges" block just ...

Groups are created at the site collection level only. It is only what permissions that group has in the sub site that is maintained (in a sub site with broken inheritance) in the sub site See this for more information: ...

A few guidelines/best practices: Apply security at the highest level possible; so first set permissions at the site collection level or even the farm. Then set permissions on the site, then, if necessary, set unique permissions on objects (pages, lists, etc.). SharePoint security works much like Windows folder security: Children inherit from parents unless ...

In general, security groups are used for permissions, but distributions are not. You can overcome this by mail-enabling security groups. In this manner, they can be used both for permissions and audiences. PLUS for an Exchange admin, you don't have the hassle of dealing with multiple groups with the same members for the two purposes.

To clarify SharePoint's permission behaviour: Sites collections contain the people (users, AD groups) and groups (SharePoint groups) that are available for all sites within the site collection. The idea is a site collection contains sites that have some overlap in user membership or business function. They are a collection of like-minded sites (in some ...

The LCID number is wrong (the fourth parameter), it should be one of this list instead than 123: http://msdn.microsoft.com/es-es/goglobal/bb964664.aspx The US-English is 1033. Remember also that if you try to create sites with a non administrator user you should use RunWithElevatedPrivileges method.

You need SPWeb.SiteGroups (MSDN link) which includes all groups that exist in the site collection. For further details, please refer to: http://blog.tylerholmes.com/2007/09/spwebgroups-vs-spwebsitegroups.html

I just did something very similar to this, should be plenty of pointers. Code below. You are welcome. My code is running as a timer job and synchronizes user groups across several site collection sharing a managed path in a web application. The code uses the following variables: _webApplicationToSynch is the absolute url to the web application. ...

You are most likely receiving this error because the group membership can only be modified by the group owner. If you open the Group settings page - you will see a setting that governs who can edit the group membership. There are two options; Group owner and Group members. In the object model it is governed by the Boolean property ...

If you want to assign permissions to particular pages (think hard about this if you are going to have a lot of pages as you can run into performance issues) you need to break the permission inheritance on the page library, remove all the permissions in the library except for the Full Control/Owners group, then add your pages with your desired permissions. ...

Create the links using a "Content Editor Web Part" and assign "Target Audiences" to that web part. So that the links can be targeted to appear only to people who are members of a particular SharePoint group or audience.

A crawl is never started by anything changing in SharePoint, neither content nor security changes. A crawl is either started manually or according to the specified schedule. If you're using search, then you probably have a crawl schedule set up which does incremental (and sometimes full) crawls. The full crawls with crawl everything and the incremental ...

If you look at the TechNet page for the Set-SPUser commandlet it seems that you are providing it with a string but that is not the expected type. Group - Optional - Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPGroupPipeBind Adds the user to an existing group in the given site. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607827.aspx Try getting a handle on the ...

If you need the Group Name, unfortunately there is no direct way to do that. But we can get the current user and get user collection for one group. Then you can check the user collection from one group to see whether it contains the current user. ...

Those groups will not be able to access the folders if the permission for the folder is broken and only the group "XYZ" has permissions to the folder and rest all are removed. UPDATE Sample powershell code: $folders = $list.Folders foreach ($spFolder in $folders) { $PermissionLevel = "PermissionName" ; $group = $web.SiteGroups[$GroupName]; ...

Yes, it is possible in 2010 to find out who added a particular user to a group and when. You do need to be collecting audit data. You can query the audit data with Powershell, for example, to return the information you seek. Here's a good sample script taken from this blog post: $site = Get-SPSite "http://yoursite.company.com" $startDate = Get-Date ...

One 3rd party tool (no connection) that will do this is Roxority FilterZen. They have a free 'lite' version. http://roxority.com/sharepoint-zen/sharepoint-list-filtering-by-user-group-membership.html

Were any other changes made outside of SharePoint? I know Exchange has an option to set distribution groups to only be available for use by "authenticated or trusted senders" (this prevents email/spam from the internet from being sent to internal distro groups). We ran into this problem, because SharePoint does not "authenticate" to the Exchange server, it ...

It sounds very much like you are locking horns with someone 'cleaning up' security on their subsite without an understanding of how People and Groups work in SharePoint. Enable your auditing and security logs and then look through them when these people disappear from their groups. That should tell you exactly who is removing them.


2

In both cases nothing will happen because there is nothing to do on SPGroup.Update(). If you are trying to add user that already exist - it's already there and if you are trying to remove user who is not member of group - there is nothing to remove. Your code will continue as normal and no exception will be thrown. I personally find this 'malfunction' to ...

I had the same problem, but this solution worked for me SP Designer WF Email doesn't go to SP Group All you have to do is: - Give everyone view acces to the group Go to the Group Settings, then, set everyone on "Who can view the membership of the group?", click OK - Add read permissions for the Sharepoint group to the site. Just be sure to give "read" ...
