Is it possible to add a group of groups to a SharePoint permissions group

Example:

Group A

  • user1

Group B

  • user2

Group C

  • group A

  • group B

Therefore, when I update A group C is inherently updated. I can't do this in AD because this is a huge enterprise environment and this is for our internal site.

Thanks, Joe

No, that is not permitted. You could add security groups into the Sharepoint groups if they exist though, distribution lists are not supported.

You are out of luck. a SP group cannot contain any other SP group. It’s a big limitation.Although SharePoint groups can contain (AD) users and AD groups. Check this Technet: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262690%28v=office.15%29.aspx
