Error 5566 using UserGroup.asmx to return current users SharePoint group memberships?


Hi all,

I am trying to return the groups that the current user is a member of using the Getgroupcollectionfromuser operator in data connection with InfoPath 2010. So I can use that data to determine who is able to see specific fields on the form, which will be a browser form.

I tried this way as a similar question was raised here.

When adding the data connection I use the method stated here, but select the Getgroupcollectionfromuser operator instead. But when I enter the a value in "Set sample value" and not in "Set value" I get the error below when I open a new item. I am also using a data connection to another list, that just has one field and one item, which will be used to set the conditions on the fields to hide them.

An error occurred while trying to connect to a Web service.

An entry has been added to the Windows event log of the server.

Accounts in Default Template


Hi,  I'm trying to learn in the VS 2010 Express. Using the default template for ASP.Net Website. It starts the web application with an accounts folder. I'm trying to extend the "registration" or "AddUser" utilities. What I'd like to do is modify the registration by adding additional elements (i.e., address, city, ST, zip, etc.). I know I can open the database and modify the Users table and also modify the stored procedure for CreateUser.

My question is:  I don't see any reference in the page code (here's a reprint of the register.aspx.vb) that calls the procedure, or even passes in the variables from the textbox entries from the page. I must be missing something. Can someone clue me how to drill into this template to find the elements like how it communicates with the database. There are a few JQuery files. I am not yet very familiar with JQuery. Is that where I need to look? Thanks for any advice...

How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?


I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?


memberships web part not showing memberships


Hi all,

We are using MOSS 2010.

The My Sites area offers a web part called "My Memberships" (memberships.dwp).
I have copied this to our portal site collection and am using it on the homepage.

After doing user profile imports and full search crawls the web part however is not correctly showing user memberships.
Sometimes it shows all, sometimes it shows a few, sometimes it shows none.

Can anyone please advise?

User group invalid for new document



Defined a user group and a site column of type people/group directing to this group.

Also defined a content type and added the site column to this content type.

When I create a new word document of this content type, word opens displaying my site column ok. But when I enter it, I see that all active directory (AD) entries are displayed. I want it to display only those users I added to the user group I created. Moreover, users can select any user from AD, which makes defining a user group and a site column meaningless.

This problem is only in creating new documents with Word. If I edit properties of an already existing document in my site, everything is ok: I can select only the users in the group.


Dataview CrossList problems if Person fields are Accounts instead of Name with Presence


I tried to create a CrossList DataView of all my tasks lists in a site collection. The problem is that the tasks don't show up in the data view if the "AssignedTo" column of a list is set to display the Account instead of the Name (with presence). The DataView simply seems to filter those items out.

Just to give you a background on this: for some of my lists I changed the AssignedTo column settings to display the "Account Name" of the person the task has been assigned to, instead of the default "Name with Presence". The reason why I changed it is because I use a third party software that automatically sets access permissions to my tasks based on the account name a task is assigned to.

However, as soon as I change the column to Account Name, the tasks disappear off my CrossList DataView. If I switch it back to "Name with Presence" they appear.

Any ideas why this is and how I could fix it?

Can't find AD security group while creating Audience rule


Hi guys,

I'm trying to create audience rule : all members of AD group. But when I try to choose a security group I need I can't find in search window. Though I see another groups. So in a whole the problem is I can't see all the AD groups but only some of them. It doesn't depends on on its type (global or local domain).

What could be a reason?
