Quick Start Guide

Described some of the common use cases when starting the application for the first time.

Getting Started

After successfully activating the application, or starting the trial, you will be able to connect to SharePoint Online or On-Premise site collection using your Office 365 or SharePoint admin credentials.

After successfully activating the application, or starting the trial, you will be able to connect to Office 365 (SharePoint Online, Office 365 Groups, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive) or On-Premise site collections using your credentials. After you pick which Site Collections, Groups, Teams and OneDrive accounts you want to manage, the initial snapshot will be triggered. For more details about snapshots, see this article.

To successfully manage SharePoint permissions, Office 365 Groups, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive and more, you need to have one of the following privileges on the desired Office 365 or SharePoint On-Premises environment:

  • Office 365 Global Administrator

  • Farm Administrator

  • Site Collection Administrator

Please note! You don't have to be an Office 365 Global Administrator in order to use SysKit Security Manager, but in order for a regular user to use Security Manager, the administrator must first sign in and consent to permission on behalf of the organisation. You need to give global admin consent to SysKit Security Manager so that users without Global Admin permissions can use it.

Afterwards, on the Site Collections screen, you can see the site structure and explore and manage the permissions of the site collections you connected. On the Office 365 Groups screen, you can see an overview of all connected Office 365 Groups: their settings, owners and members.

For detailed information on user permission requirements, see this article.
