Apply a GPO to a group

Introduction

In this article, I will explain how to apply a Group Policy (GPO) to an Active Directory group that contains multiple users.

The tutorial also applies in case you want to apply the policy to a particular user.

Prerequisites

  • Have created the Active Directory group
  • Having created the strategy
  • The policy must be correctly placed either at the root of the domain or at the OUs where the users are, not the group.

Apply a strategy to a group

The first step, from the 1 Scope tab of the policy in the Security Filtering 2 section, is to remove the Authenticated Users object to add the 3 group to which the GPO is ‘applied.
gpo groupe

Now you have to add read rights to the policy to the Authenticated Users object, go to the Delegation tab 1 and click Add 2 .

Select / Add the object Authenticated Users 1 and click OK 2 .
Add object

Choose the Read permission 1 and click OK 2 .
Read

The Authenticated Users object is added with read permission on the policy.

Conclusion

Prior to the MS16-072 update, it was not necessary to add the Authenticated Users object with Read permission on Group Policies, it was sufficient to add the group in the security filtering.
