I updated the Display members of AD groups in ShaePoint 2010. Now the solution has a new look and as what one of my friends, Christian Stahl suggested I added links to members of groups and groups to display detailed info about user.
If you use SharePoint Server 2010 and you have my sites configured, you will be redirected to my site host for details about a user.
If user have permission to see members of SharePoint group, the group displays link to group membership page or group settings if you will. You can see the link in the bottom part of the picture.
AD groups now have a new icon, which you can see by the »CORP\sg_finance« AD group.
When you click on the group link you are redirected to a People and Groups page:
Users that are members of the site, not AD groups also have links to details view. If you use SharePoint Foundation 2010 you are redirected to a »Users« list if you use My Sites you are redirected to user's my site.
If you want to install the new version of solution, downlod the wsp file from Codeplex:
On your SharePoint Server run SharePoint 2010 Management Shell as Administrator and then run the command:
Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath C:\Users\sp_farm\Desktop\Skupine_Web_Part.wsp
To deploy the solution go to Central Administration, System settings, Manage Farm Solutions, click on »Skupine_Web_part.wsp« and click Deploy Solution.
You can also deploy the solution with PowerShell by running the following command:
Install-SPSolution -Identity skupine_web_part.wsp -GACDeployment -AllWebApplications
What you need to do next is go to your site collection where you want to use this solution and Activate the »Skupine Web part« solution on the »Site collection features« page:
Add web part to a page
To insert a web part to your page, click Edit page button and then Add a Web Part.
In the »KompasXnet« category, you will find »Xnet Diplay Group Members« web part.
When you web part is on the page, it is going to be empty. From a web part menu, select »Edit web part«
Enter a user name. This can be any domain user, without any special privileges. In the format domain\username.
Enter password for this user.
Enter domain information for querying your domain. If you have a special users container, you can specifiy just the Organizational Unit.
For example, if you would like to query just the OU »Zaposleni« you can enter:
Enter the Fully qualified domain name of domain controller where query will be sent to:
Click Stop Editing on the Ribbon on the Page tab.
When you click Stop Editing, the Web part will still be empty. What you need to do is click Browse on the Ribbon and navigate to the page where the Web part is.
Hope you find the improved version of my solution useful. If you have any comments or suggestions please send me email to:
