The first version of my Active Directory permissions reporting tool has now been officially released. There are still plenty of features I will be adding in future updates but even this first version is easier to use and more powerful than other tools out there – but then I would say that wouldn’t I
This is a tool for reporting on security rights and delegated permissions that have been assigned to OUs and other objects in your Active Directory domain – if you’re looking for a tool that reports on file system permissions instead then check out my NTFS Permissions Reporter tool.
A picture paints a thousand words so to give you an idea of how the tool works here’s the main window of AD Permissions Reporter, showing permissions and members of groups used in those permissions:
You can use it to document permissions on every object in the domain, or you can narrow the report down to a specific tree of OUs (or a specific object) and with the powerful filtering system you can find very specific permission configurations – as you can see in the screenshots below.
As always I’ve tried to make this as easy to use as possible (which was difficult as AD permissions are a lot more complex than NTFS permissions) but I’ll be uploading some videos soon that provide step by step guides on how to perform certain tasks and go into more detail on each of the features of the program. For now though there is this general tour of the program:
If you think this tool might help you out then you can download the free edition or find out more about the standard edition (and view more screenshots) here: http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ADPermissionsReporter/Info.html
Oh and a big thank you to everyone that helped with the BETA testing
