Can I use managed client OM to retrieve user profile?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
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...

SPS2010: Managed Metadata & User Profile

Hello, we have a multilanguage environment with a german language pack & english base installation. If the default language of the managed metadata service is set to english users can use the profile page of the mysite and update profiledata without problems. Problem: If we change the default language to german the profilepage becomes inacessible (if the profile has updated entries) and User can' t update profiledata anymore. The MySite was created using the German Language Pack. Can anybody confirm this?

How to retrieve a user profile for any site member



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?

C# and the Web: Writing a Web Client Application with Managed Code in the Microsoft .NET Framework


When the author wanted to build a middleware Web client to connect to other applications over the Internet, he realized that the XMLHttpRequest COM object was not sufficient for his purposes. In order to build a Web client using managed code, the author had to use the HTTPWebRequest and HTTPWebResponse classes provided by the Microsoft .NET framework. These classes are used in the sample project as a substitute for the less powerful XMLHttpRequest COM object, allowing the author to build a full-featured Web client. They also take advantage of all the benefits that the CLR and managed code have to offer.

Why does .NET Framework 4 client profile slow down boot time network creation?

I've been running a Windows XP sp3 KVM virtual machine for a long time now, and some recent update made the initial network startup go from a few seconds at boot time to around 90 seconds. Using Add/Remove program to uninstall recent updates points the finger at .NET Framework 4 client profile. With it installed, if I right click on network and ask for properties right after booting, there is a 90 second delay before the network dialog with the list of network interfaces finally appears. In addition, the network drive I have automounted at login is not accessible for the same 90 seconds. As an experiment, I tried going into the device manager and deleting the network interface, and if I reboot after that it takes 90 seconds for the new hardware wizard to appear. All these 90 second delays vanish if I remove this .NET update. The network comes up as soon as the system boots.

Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile

I changed from Vista to Windows 7.  Every time I start my computer it says I need to install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0  When I do that, the installation says it's already in my computer. I have looked and what's installed is Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.  What should I do?  Also, my bluetooth has stopped working. Is this why?

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 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?
