Review GPO Links

You can display a diagram showing where a Group Policy Object (GPO) or GPOs that you select are linked to organizational units. GPO link diagrams are updated each time the GPO is controlled, imported, or checked in.

A user account with the Reviewer, Editor, Approver, or AGPM Administrator (Full Control) role or necessary permissions in Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) is required to complete this procedure. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.

Reviewing GPO links

To display GPO links for one or more GPOs

  1. In the Group Policy Management Console tree, click Change Control in the forest and domain in which you want to manage GPOs.

  2. On the Contents tab in the details pane, click the Controlled, Pending, or Recycle Bin tab to display GPOs.

  3. Select one or more GPOs for which to display links, right-click a selected GPO, click Settings, and then click GPO Links to display a diagram of domains and organizational units with links to the selected GPO(s).

To display GPO links for one or more versions of a GPO

  1. In the Group Policy Management Console tree, click Change Control in the forest and domain in which you want to manage GPOs.

  2. On the Contents tab in the details pane, click the Controlled or Recycle Bin tab to display GPOs.

  3. Double-click the GPO to display its history.

  4. Right-click the GPO version for which to review the settings, click Settings, and then click HTML Report or XML Report to display a summary of the GPO's settings.

Additional considerations

  • By default, you must be a Reviewer, an Editor, an Approver, or an AGPM Administrator (Full Control) to perform this procedure. Specifically, you must have List Contents and Read Settings permissions for the GPO. Also, to display the list of GPOs, you must have List Contents permission for the domain.
