Permissions Reporter provides a number of options that are global, meaning that they apply regardless of which project is currently loaded.




Enable automatic update checks - When enabled, Permissions Reporter will check for updates automatically when it starts up.

Automatically reload last saved project - When enabled, the last loaded project is re-loaded when Permissions Reporter starts up.

Apply colors to highlight permissions levels - When enabled, permissions levels with the folder and table views will be colorized.

Maximum log file entries - Indicates the maximum number of log file entries that will be held in memory. When this number is exceeded, the oldest entries will be purged to make room for new ones.




Permissions Reporter supports the ability to email permissions reports to one or more recipients during command line or scheduled operations.


In order for email functions to function correctly, you must first configure Permissions Reporter to communicate with your mail service provider.


If you're unsure about that values to use in the server settings configuration area, please contact your mail server provider for details.




Enable caching of account details retrieved from Active Directory - Caches account details in memory, resulting in considerable performance benefits. Disable only in low-memory environments.

Resolve object display names via Active Directory - Uses Active Directory queries to get more information about accounts.

Resolve object state (enabled/disabled) via Active Directory - Uses Active Directory to query about the enabled/disabled state of accounts.

Enable low priority I/O mode - Enable this option if you want I/O operations performed by Permissions Reporter to run at background priority, making file system scans less likely to interfere with other disk operations. Changing this setting requires that you restart Permissions Reporter.

Maximum analysis threads - Determines the maximum number of threads to use during permission report generation. By default, threads will be allocated automatically based upon the number of available cores. If you find that this approach consumes too many computational resources, try limiting the program to one or two threads.
