Problems with Audience Targeting on Navgation(Quick Links)

  Asked By: Arturo    Date: Apr 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4900

I have installed the publishing feature on the Fab 40 Help Desk
template and I am now trying to control visibility of the navigation.

This works under the following
1. Use audiences built in SSP
2. Use sharepoint groups where I add individual AD accounts(not AD
3. Use 1 and 1 only AD security/distribution groups

Whe this does not work
1. Add AD groups to Sharepoint Groups and target with the sharepoint
2. Use more than 1 AD group directly in the targeting for the
navigation. In this situation, I can see/search for the groups,
close the window, and hit OK to confirm the navigation changes but
when I immediately open it back up and check the groups on that link
only one is valid. SP says it cant find the second one(red
underline) or it shows the full OU information. Again, it works all
day long if I use only 1.

As you can guess, I would like to use option 1 or 2 of the ones that
do not work. I have reproduced this in multiple test environments.

I think you are stuck, my friend. We are having the same issues you
mentioned with AD groups  in SP groups. I know someone trying to fix this
with a custom timer job, I'll let you know if he fixes it.

Yes, I believe both of these are known issues. We raised the issue
with multiple  AD groups  not correctly being saved by the people
picker with Microsoft support, and are expecting it to be resolved
in SP1. (We think it is related to the issue that the people picker
also doesn't correctly save names with a comma in the display name.)

I think the workaround at the moment would be to define global
audiences using the AD groups.
