Assigning SharePoint Groups to SharePoint User Accounts

Assigning SharePoint Groups to SharePoint User Accounts

Groups can be assigned directly or indirectly to employees. In the case of indirect assignment, employees and groups are arranged in hierarchical roles. The number of groups assigned to an employee is calculated from the position in the hierarchy and the direction of inheritance.

If you add an employee to hierarchical roles and the employee owns a user authenticated user account, the user account is added to the group. Prerequisites for indirect assignment of employees to user accounts:

  • Assignment of employees and groups is permitted for role classes (department, cost center, location or business role).
  • The option Group authenticated is not set in the user accounts.
  • User accounts are marked with the option Groups can be inherited.
  • User accounts and groups belong to the same site collection.

Furthermore, groups can be assigned to employees through IT Shop requests. Add employees to a shop as customers so that groups can be assigned through IT Shop requests. All groups are assigned to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested groups are assigned to the employees after approval is granted.
