Auto populating built-in users and security groups?

  Asked By: Sarojini    Date: Jul 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1675

I was planning on doing some work with a WSS v3 site definition, but I wanted to
know if there was a way you can have any WSS sites created with this definition
come pre-loaded with certain users or security groups.

the out of the box site  definitions do this so its clearly possible. One
way of achieving this would be to write a feature that created  these groups
when the site was provisioned. Then create a feature association between
the previously mentioned feature and your site definition.

Things that cannot be done in declarative markup in a custom site
definition like default users  and groups  can always be accomplished
programmatically with a Feature Activated callout.

Is this something you could provide an example for? I'm not much of a coder,
