    Update Security Group Membership

    Update Security Group Membership wizard was designed to perform the bulk set of Project Security Groups membership for PWA Users. This wizard can be used if you need to set in target PWA the same Project Security Groups membership for users as in source PWA.


    1. Security Groups are present in the target PWA.
    2. Resources, for which group membership needs to be set, are present in FluentBooks workspace.
    3. The User Accounts should be active in target PWA.

    Step 1 - Download Resources into FluentBooks Workspace

    1. Run FluentBooks >> Import >> Download PWA Configuration

    1.1 Provide source PWA URL and credentials in Step 1 of the wizard.

    1.2 In Step 2 of the wizard select Resources to download them from the source PWA. 

    2. Proceed through Step 3 of the wizard. Please leave all predefined check-boxes as is.

    3. As the download process finishes, exit the Download PWA Configuration wizard by clicking Close and Finish buttons. 

    Step 2 - Select Resources

    As you finish working with the Download PWA Configuration wizard FluentBooks Workspace containing Resources will be opened. 

    In the FluentBooks Workspace choose Resources, which you would like to be added to Security Groups in the target PWA by checking their checkboxes.

    📢 As an option, you can open the previously saved FluentBooks Workspace, which contains the Resource and elements of the Security section, and use this Workspace.

    Step 3 - Update Security Group Membership

    As needed Resources were selected in the Workspace, click on File >> Export >> Update Security Group Membership wizard.

    1. In Step 1 of the wizard provide Target PWA URL and credentials.

    Resource Mapping -  select this option if it is needed to perform source to target User Accounts mapping.

    Click Next to proceed.

    2In Step 2 of the wizard, FluentBooks will display the list of User Accounts. Here, check the checkboxes of those Users, who need to be added to Security Groups.

    Click Next to proceed.

    If Resource Mapping option was enabled in Step 1 of the wizard:

    FluentBooks will load the Users Accounts from the target PWA and the Resource Mapping screen will be displayed.

    Update Security Group Membership wizard provides three ways to specify target accounts:

    1. Map accounts manually

    Target accounts can be edited manually, to do this double-click the target account name and it will become editable, click the Enter key to confirm the changes.

    Add target resource name and target account.

    2. Auto Mapping

    When using the Auto Mapping option, FluentBooks will perform the "best-match" by searching matching User Names and Users Accounts. 

    Make sure to verify results of Auto Mapping thoroughly, since they may not be 100 % accurate.

    • If FluentBooks finds a fully corresponding account, it will be marked white.
    • If there is no corresponding account found in the target environment, it will be highlighted in red.
    • If the target account does not fully correspond, it will be marked yellow

    Target accounts can be edited manually, to do this double-click the target account name and it will become editable, click the Enter key to confirm the changes. 

    3. Mapping using Excel file

    Save - this option allows exporting the list of User Accounts from FluentBooks into Excel File. 

    You can then use the generated Excel file to provide the target User Names and User Accounts.

    Load - after mapping was done in the Excel file, use the Load button to load the results into FluentBooks.

    Edit the Excel File. Add names and user accounts to Target Name and Target Account columns. Save and close the Excel File.

    Click on Load in FluentBooks to proceed and open the previously saved Excel File.

    Click Next to proceed.

    If Resource Mapping option was disabled in Step 1 of the wizard:

    3. FluentBooks will start adding Users into Groups.

    Please allow the program some time to finish the process. 

    A progress bar will display the current status of the operation.

    4. As the process finishes Summary screen will be displayed 

    Click Finish to exit the wizard 

    As a result, users will be added to Project Security Groups.
