Use the “Inspect Groups” function to view a users direct and indirect group membership

What’s changing 

You can now quickly surface information regarding specific users and the groups they are part of directly in the Admin console. 
  • View direct and indirect members of a group: Enables you to see an expanded view of all memberships in a group. This allows to see a single view of all memberships for a nested group structure 
  • Check Membership: This allows you to validate whether a user is a member of a particular group. 
  • List all groups for a member: You can view a list of all groups a user is a member of, the email address or addresses associated with the group, and the group relation (indirect, direct, or both). See below for more information. 

Who’s impacted 


Why it’s important 

In order to manage access to content and resources within their organization, Admins use numerous groups to ensure proper access for their users. This also involves nesting groups, adding another layer of complexity. 

This feature will give Admins a clear understanding of the group structures for any user in their organization, all in one place. We hope this feature makes it easier for Admins to take action on managing their users by providing all the necessary information, such as all groups a user is part of and their membership status.
