Permissions review, in the context of Office 365 environment, is an activity where a person responsible for an Office 365 resource - be it Communication site, Microsoft Team, Office 365 Group or OneDrive - checks whether permissions, given to users inside (internal) and outside (external) of company, comply with the organizational rules and guidelines.
While the Automated Permissions Review was introduced in SysKit Point 14, SysKit Point 15 brings the Manually Requested Permissions Review to the table.
To use the manually requested Permissions Review, first, ensure the Automated Permissions Review is enabled.
To manually create a Permissions Review, use the Request Review action, available for SysKit Point Admin users on the following screens:
Microsoft Teams & Groups overview
Site or Group details
To manually request a Permissions Review, do the following:
Open the Sites Overview screen
Select the desired resource (1); you can also select multiple resources at once
Click the Request Review Action (2) available in the side panel
Request Permissions Review dialog will appear.
After confirming the request, you will be redirected to the Permissions Review overview screen, where you can monitor the progress of the created Permissions Review.
After the manual permissions review request was sent, the resource owners receive a Permissions Review request e-mail in their mailbox.
Link in the email leads you directly to the Permissions Review task in SysKit Point. Here, you can:
select the resource (1)
perform the Permissions Review (2)
The Permission Review details screen opens, where you can perform actions, check permission changes, and, in the end, complete the Permissions Review. Actions and reports available here are the same as in the Automated Permissions Review tasks. You can find them all described in greater detail here.
If a resource has a Permissions Review active, you can access the Permissions Review details screen from the Overview screen by clicking the Review Now (1) action link, visible when the resource is selected.
