Understanding Audiences in 2007

  Asked By: Edmond    Date: Nov 23    Category: MOSS    Views: 1000

I need some help understanding audiences in MOSS 2007. Is there somewhere that
they need to be compiled, as with SPS 2003?

Here is my scenario.

* User A is a member of Active Directory Group B
* AD Group B is a member of SharePoint Group C
* SharePoint Group C is listed as the target audience for Navigation Link D

With this scenario, I would assume that User A should see Navigation Link D, by
the law of association. However, he doesn't.

So am I missing a step in defining the audience? Or do the audiences not
associate memberships the way I am expecting them to?

I want to pop this question back to the top of the list. I know my
timing in posing it was bad, since it was right around the holidays.
I figured I'd throw it back out there again just to see what would

And to further clarify (or perhaps confuse) the question, I realize
there is the user profile database and audience rules built into
shared services, and those seem to work essentially the same as in
SPS 2003.

My question has to do with the seeming capability to define audiences
at the portal level. The scenario I described below has to do with
defining ad hoc audiences  within the site collection. My
understanding was that they extended audience definition in MOSS 2007
to allow not only Central Administrators, but also Site Collection
Administrators, to define their own audiences.
