Setting public contact directory policy


Applies to: Groove Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2010-02-11

This article describes how to control whether managed identities appear in the globally public Microsoft SharePoint Workspace directory by setting member identity policies accordingly. Clicking an identity in the directory displays the identity’s contact information (vCard).

This procedure requires that Groove Server 2010 Manager is installed as described in Deployment for Groove Server 2010.

To set public contact directory policy

  1. Log on to the Groove Server Manager administrative Web site, expand Policies, and then click Default or another policy template.

  2. On the Member Policies page, under Public Contact Directory Policies, select one of the following options:

    • To allow SharePoint Workspace users publish contact information in the public Groove directory, select the option, Allow publishing of vCard to the Public Groove Directory.

    • To prevent SharePoint Workspace users from searching for contacts in the public contact directory, select the option, Prevent members from searching for contacts in the Public Contact directory.

  3. Click Save Changes in the toolbar. Any domain group or member to whom you assign this identity policy template will be subject to the policy that you defined.

After SharePoint Workspace clients receive this policy from Groove Server Manager, domain members will be subject to the SharePoint Workspace identity publication restrictions that are defined by this policy. This policy applies to domain members who are subject to this policy template. For information about assigning policy templates to domain members, see Deploying policies to SharePoint Workspace users.
