Rules restriction in audience

  Asked By: Eugene    Date: Jul 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 792

I have been working in Sharepoint solutions and need to give
audience base content access. But unfortunately, we can have only 5
rules in an audience. There is no attribute in AD that can commonly
identify these people. They are from different department, different
roles. I can only add them using their account id. Is there any solution
to this?

Only the browser interface is subjust to the 5 rules  restriction - if you use
the SDK, you can add  as many rules as you like.

Keep in mind that audiences aren't real security, so don't expect to use them to
actually secure information.

Maybe I'm missing something, but wouldn't it be much easier to create a
group for this Audience in AD and then setup the SPS Audience to correspond
to that group? It is certainly easier to administer this way and this is
what I recommend to clients that have this issue.

Can you please tell me what you mean when you say "audiences
aren't real security". I haven't explored SDK enough. So yeah maybe I
can do it through SDK then.

Audiences are just a type of filter - they hide information only in certain
locations and when audience  targetting is specified. There are a varierty of
methods that will ignore aurdiences, so you should not use as a security
