How to retrieve a user profile for any site member

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I am new to asp.net's membership controls. I am trying to figure out how to make a public profile page that will display information about a site member to other users. I thought I would be able to use the profile class and just pass in a parameter such as user name. But I tried:


Profile.GetProfile("username") 'Where username = name of profile I want to retrieve




However, if the user is logged in this codee just brings back their details, not those of the username requested. What am I doing wrong?

MySite user profile site creation of My Content page is created as provisioned failed (unprovisioned

I've been trying to troubleshoot our User Profile Sync and have noticed the profile pages weren't getting updated with everything.  Most content was but things like memberships and the content tabs weren't.  I also saw this error in ULS: ProfSynch: Exception attempting to enumerate site 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e for ContentDB 23a6e3ef-6d56-4bde-825e-95c6924e2f91: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfileSynchronizationInternalException: ProfSynch: The site with ID 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e cannot be synchronized due to an unprovisioned root web.      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.GetSynchInfoForSite(SqlDataReader dr, SynchInfo info)      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.<get_Elements>d__0.MoveNext() I checked in the MySite database under the webs table and noticed all the My Content sites for all of our users had the flag column with the number 1315 in them - (meaning unprovisioned as the error above states).  Cross checking with the User Sync Profile database under the SiteSynch table I noticed all of the sites have NULL for the value under both the LastSynch and ChangeToken columns (The User Profile Service Application - User Profile to SharePoint Full Synchronization  timer job takes care of populating that).&

Can I use managed client OM to retrieve user profile?

I don't think managed client object model can be used to get user profile. I don't see anything similar to Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfile namespace...

Update User Profile info from another SharePoint site


Hi All,

I have MOSS 2007 up and running, and the Staff Profile is maintained by the users.

Now there is another NEW sharepoint 2010 apps planning. In order to avoid the duplication of staff profile in SharePoint 2010, the requirement is to update the SharePoint 2010 Staff Profile from the existing MOSS 2007.

Is it possible? Any help.

C# - Creating web client for automating user activity on a HTTPS site

I've been wracking my brain for a couple of weeks on this.  I need to create a web client (I don't want to use the webBrowser control because I need this to be as lightweight as possible) to log in to a secure web site, and then effectively click links and fill in fields to get the data that would normally be displayed in the web browser.  I'm then going to parse the data and perform other actions with it. I have been working with HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse and many permutations of suggestions I have found while Googling my issue, but I can't get rid of my problem:  Sometimes when I effictively click the ultimate link that I need to click to get to my data, I get what I am looking for.  However, MOST of the timel, I get a response page that tells me my connection timed out and that I need to log in again.  I have tried messing with cookies and such, but to no avail. I know it's good form to post my code, but it is so sloppy and screwed up right now from tweaking this and trying that, that I'd rather not take the approach of fixing what's there, rather I'd like to start with solid, clean code to begin with. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, ALo

SharePoint BDC - User Profile - 1:Many

Hi everyone, sorry for the long post, but I thought it'd be better to give all the information just in case there's a better way to do this. Basically, here's our scenario, we have a requirement to have Customers searchable in the people search (as in which employee sells to which customers).  We have a sql database with 3 tables: - employees(columns: userid, username, displayname); - customers(columns: customerid, customername); and - employeecustomer(columns userid, customerid) - we also have one view UserCustomer(columns: username, customername) So we've tried to create the BDC Applciation Definition on the view.  Here is the Entity Portion of the Application Definition file: <Entity EstimatedInstanceCount="10000" Name="EmployeeCustomer"> <Properties> <Property Name="Title" Type="System.String">username</Property> </Properties> <Identifiers> <Identifier Name="customer_name" TypeName="System.String" /> <Identifier Name="username" TypeName="System.String" /> </Identifiers> <Methods> <Method Name="Get_EmployeeCustomer_List"> <Properties> <Property Name="RdbCommandText" Type="System.String"><![CDATA[SELECT custo

User Alert Management for a specific list versus entire SharePoint site?

It seems that to be able to manage User Alerts, one must have Full Access to the entire SharePoint site - and then use => Site Settings > User Alerts. Ideally, I would like to be able to grant access to users to only be able to manage alerts for a specific list. Is this possible (without having to do any programming) and, if so, how? If such access is only available at the site level, I will simply create a Permission Level that allows one to only "Manage Alerts" Thanks in advance for any assistance. Dave

Cannot create user: server cannot determine if it is member of a domain

Hi, An instance of our 2008 SP1 SQL Server is running on a computer that was removed from it's domain and then re-added. Now, when I want to create a new login in Management Studio via the nodes Security/Logins, selecting "New Login", entering DOMAIN_NAME\USER_NAME as login name and then click "Search", I get an error message (in German) "Das Programm kann das erforderliche Dialogfeld nicht öffnen, da nicht ermittelt werden kann, ob Computer "COMPUTER_NAME" einer Domäne zugeordnet ist. Schließen Sie dieses Dialogfeld, und wiederholen Sie den Vorgang". Translation: "The program cannot open the required dialog, as it cannot be determined if computer "COMPUTER_NAME" is assigned to a domain. Close this dialog, and repeat the process." But closing the dialog and repeating as suggested does not help. Even restarting the SQL Server service and re-connecting in Management Studio did not help. I keep getting this message. I found, however, that just entering the domain and user name and then clicking Ok seems to add the user. Anyway, it is irritating to get this error message when clicking "Search". How can I tell the engine that the computer is really member of the domain again? Frank

User Profile Service account Write to AD Permissions

I followed this guide here (http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx) to provision the UPS service in sharepoint 2010. I found the guide very helpful and informative. Everything is working correctly except for the write back to AD I've followed the steps and have assigned the listed permissions to the UPS service account, however I still get permissiong errors in the FIM GUI Our AD is running in a 2008 environment but is in 2003 mode, so I made sure to add the UPS account to Pre Windows 2000 Compatible access built in group and restart the server so that the new group settings would take affect. Do I need to reprovision the UPS service or something? Or am I missing something completely. (Hopefully the latter lol!) Thanks RKB

User Profile Application Failing in SharePoint 2010 (14.0.4514.1004)

I keep getting the following error "This User Profile Application's connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or User Profile Service may not have been started. Please contact your administrator.". As sugested by Travis at http://blogs.pointbridge.com/Blogs/nielsen_travis/pages/default.aspx I tried commenting the two security nodes, removing its' allowInsecureTransport attributes, and setting then False. As Lionel wrote in his comment I tried also modifying "Central Administration / Application Management / Configure service application associations / Application Proxy Group" of my share point web application. My application pool for User Profile Service Application seems working and User Profile Service status is Started.One thing I remember about my issue, first I tried creating User Profile Service Application I got some error message and tried creating User Profile Service Application again. It gave me some other exception and than I navigated somehow to the "Manage service applications" page and there the desired User Profile Service Application was magically on the list with status Started. I thought - that's great! But when I clicked the User Profile Service Application link I got the nasty red error I mentioned at the beginning. Any ideas?Regards,Dawid Ireno

Customize the User Profile page

I need to add a "link" or "button" to the User Profile page (userdisp.aspx).  In SP2007, I had a custom feature that would forward the user to a custom aspx page, but that doesn't appear to work in 2010.  Is there a recommended method of customizing the User Profile page in 2010?

Custom User Profile Views or Reports

Hi, I'm wondering if it's possible to easily create reports or views for user profiles. For example, I want a list of all user profiles where the picture field is blank, though on other occasions I may want to check if Manager is blank, or Office = Sydney, etc. When in Shared Services Admin the 'View User Profiles' view doesn't give me any options to create a new view, add columns to the view or do anything basically. The standard view I look at just contains Account Name, Preferred Name and Email Address. There must be a way of getting this information out of Central Admin. Thanks, Paul.
