View SharePoint Site Permissions from the Admin Center

As a SharePoint administrator, wouldn’t it be nice to see who has permission to your site without needing to go either to a different Admin Center, or the site itself? As demonstrated in several sessions at Microsoft Ignite in November 2019, you will soon be able to view SharePoint site permissions in the SharePoint Admin Center through the enhanced details pane on the Active Sites page.

How to view SharePoint site permissions now

Currently, as a SharePoint Admin, you can view the owners of an Office 365 group which is related to a SharePoint site, by selecting the site on the Active Sites page of the SharePoint Admin Center, and choosing to Change group owners.

This will open a pane on the right where you can add or remove Office 365 group owners.

But what if you want to see the members of this Office 365 group? For that, you’ll need to go to the Groups page of the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, locate the appropriate group, and view its members.

And what if you want to see the members of this site’s SharePoint Owners, Members, and Visitors groups? For that, you’ll need to go to the site itself, and click on Site Permissions.

And you can also view and edit the site’s Office 365 Group owners and members from within the site, by clicking on the x members link.
