GetCommonMemberships Method - unable to reterive AD user group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    my requirement to hide/read-only few controls in the form, for AD user group. I have followed the below URL for configuration of GetCommonMembership and everything is working fine. I just drag the repeating group to the canvas - the group that contains all the field nodes of that web service.

    http://claytoncobb.wordpress.com/2009/07/19/infopath-user-roles-in-browser-enabled-forms-using-groups/

    Noticed that, the web service returns all the AD groups and information but except the group which i want i.e "TeamOwnersGroup". I have checked with the AD guys, they have created a group as shown below.

    Do i need to do any extra configurations, other than the configuration available in above blog?

    Hi Mohammed,

    When you create the group in your AD environment, you should synchronize it to your SharePoint as the following.

    1. Go to your SharePoint Administration.
    2. Home->Shared Services Administration->SharedServices1->User profiles and My Sites-> User profiles and properties.
    3. Start incremental import(or start full import)

    Thanks,

    Jack

  • Hi Jack,

    After AD group has been created, I did the Full Import twice and also the Incremental crawl too. I configure the GetCommonMemberships webservice and then drag the repeating group to the canvas - the group that contains all the field nodes of that web service.

    Noticed that,

    • The web service returns the AD Distribution List groups and also the SharePoint Groups information but except the group which i want i.e "TeamOwnersGroup".
    • When the i preview the form, in Source dropdown list it shows the options are Distribution List, SharePoint Site and Others, but not the Security List option.

    Question:

    GetCommonMemberships retrieves AD Distribution List groups and the SharePoint Groups but not the Security Groups, why?
