Automatic SharePoint Group Membership Based On User Profile

  Asked By: Mackenzie    Date: Dec 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2032

I don't know how far fetched this is, but I would believe it would be
a useful trick for some people. Here's the question..

What I'm trying to do is have separate 'Department' SharePoint groups
setup with the members automatically being based on a parameter in
their profile. So if my user profile had DepartmentID=80 then I would
be a member of the 'Dept-Information Technology' Group.

I'm sure this can be done with a semi-intense script that just runs on
a schedule and updates the groups through program, but I'm curious if
there's a more seamless way to do it. For if I had to run a script to
add/subtract users; I would start at the base - Active Directory and
just write a VB script to do so in the AD Groups.

I hope this makes sense, and really hope it's possible..?
