I recently activated Audit Logs on my SharePoint Server.

I use Audit Logging for security reasons. I want to know which user changed rights or groups.

I tried this by deleting someone from a group. As result I get following event:


Can I somehow see who is behind UserID 14 and which group is behind GroupID 17?


For looking up both group and user you might use this url:


It shows you either the user's information or the group's members depending on the entered id represents a group or a user.

Caution: The ids are unique within site collections only. So ...?id=42 within site collection A might be a different user or group in site collection B.

  • I guess this only works in SharePoint 2013? – Cryol Sep 9 '15 at 7:51
