Great tool, really helps when we have a new started and nobody seems to know what the previous person did. Thanks.

I tried deploying this in my SharePoint 2010 Site. Once I got it deployed, I did see the menu item in the Site Settings. But when I get there, first, I did not see the username - people picker textbox appearing, then I went to the address book icon, selected a Username and came back...when I pressed Check Permissions, it said "Ambiguous username"

this is very good solutions and hats off to the hard work. but I Dont see the check user access and view permission inheritance on the site settings page under Users and Permission. I have the webpart only. Is there a way we can increase the scope to lists and library items. Or any place where we can modify the code for that ......

Great Implementation and functionality! I did notice a compilation error of the source, in regards to a "GetUserEffectivePermissions" method which didn't exist in my build, but actually had a great fix in the "issue tracker" tab. This was minor, and required very little effort/time to fix, and didn't detract from the end functionality of this project.

An amazing tool! A perfect learning solution in Sharepoint webpart development! Thank you for the hard work! -Rick

Such a feature should have been in provided in standard by Microsoft! However, the implementation is not so fast, and reading the permissions user by user is not neccessary the most effective way to audit the permissions.

Briliant tool! Thank you for creating it! I think that MS should include it in the next release of SP (as maintaining permission in a little bit more complicated site strucutres is nightmare)

Whole process took about 5 minutes to install, very useful I particularly like the fact that if you select a list/site you get taken to the relevant permissions screen. The people picker is a helpful addition.

Excellent work :)

Excelent solution. I hope that even Sharepoint groups will be supported in next versions.

Works really well, and am impressed with the feature stapling installation. Only point that is dissappointing is the fact you can't search on sharepoint groups (so far as I can tell) which is pretty fundamental to how most installations are configured I would imagine.

Works, but for AD Users only. Neither AD Groups, nor FBA Roles or FBA Members are supported at the moment, due to the code in the AccessCheckerWebPart.SetPrincipalInfo() method. Not sure (yet) if these additional principal types would be supported if the validation check was simply relaxed, or if the fundamental access checking mechanism requires the principal to be an AD user - TBD.

Superb piece of work, has already highlighted a couple of issues with access to subsites.

Very useful tool and it really saves site administrator's time in checking access specially when you have many users and many sites in your SharePoint farm. Excellent web part, Great job!
