# Change configuration for fetching user groups
When CSP loads it fetches a list of groups that a user is a membership of to detect what boards the user has access to. By default it fetches only groups from CDF that are linked to external groups from IdP system (AAD groups etc.). This setting can be changed to fetch all CDF groups (linked and not linked) that user belongs to.
To do that open the user menu and select Change configuration. In the pop-up window change the selection for Use all user groups.
To see the changes check the list of group in the Select group access menu.
