Group and User List Membership
Groups and user lists are two different ways of grouping users together in the datasource.
Groups are typically created by the administrator as a way to group together users who need the same access rights to folders and documents. Once a group is created, you can then assign that group permission to a folder, rather than assigning each user permission to the folder, one at a time.
User lists provide a way to group together users, groups and also other user lists. There are two types of user lists: access lists and mailing lists. The administrator will create an access list to group together users, groups and other access lists that need the same access rights to folders and documents. The administrator will create a mailing list (also referred to as Global Address Books) to group together users with email addresses, groups, and other mailing lists, so users with email addresses can send and receive messages using Messaging Services in ProjectWise Explorer.
The membership of groups and user lists could previously only be managed from ProjectWise Administrator, but now can also be managed from ProjectWise Explorer, using the new User / Group Management dialog, which opens when you select Tools > User Management.
The user you are logged in as must be an owner of a group in order to manage its membership and ownership; however you are not required to be a member of the group to be an owner of it. For any group of which you are an owner, you can add users to the group, and you can also designate other users to be owners of the group (a group can have multiple owners). You can also add a group to a user list, provided that you are an owner of both the group and the user list.
I'd like to get a list of all AD groups in which that user is currently a member. To display the members of a group, or the groups to which a user belongs, use the pts membership command. www.marketing-lists-direct.com/
