Outlook Social Connector and Activity Feed error

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am testing out the Outlook Social Connector. The Facebook and LinkedIn providers work great, however when I try the MySite provider
I receive an XML validation error.

The connection appears to be successful however when I click on "Finish" in the dialog I get the error message. This is the standard
SharePoint activity Feed

Using Fiddler, I see:


The error is presented after the UserProfileService call. After clicking Ok, I see the final request.

SharePoint 2010 RSS Feed and Outlook Error

Outlook Social Connector photo from MySite not showing



I have the outlook social connector connected to my mysite host in sharepoint 2010, it is pulling activity feeds just fine but not the photo's.

When I was running SharePoint 2010 Beta and Office 2010 Beta, this worked fine, but since I have installed RTM for both, the photo's do not show.

I have not done a 2 way sync with Active Directory to send the photo's to AD, as I did not do this at beta, but as I already mentioned - i could see the photos in the beta environment.

Any ideas?




Sharepoint 2010 and Outlook Social Connector


Ok, need some expert advice here. I have setup a new SharePoint Farm, complete, not standalone, with nothing by the My Sites Host site collection. I can access the profiles by https://sharepoint.domain.com/my or by https://sharepoint.domain.com/my/person.aspx?accountname=domain/user. /my/default.aspx works as well. My profile sync is working, I get the data pulled properly from AD for these profiles and it propagates the managers info and org browser, etc. 

For the life of me, I cannot get the Social Connector to do anything for SharePoint. No News Feeds, nothing. I click on Add in the People Pane, and choose "on My Site" and it errors out. 

I have looked through countless blogs, but all of them seem to be centered on the User Profile Service, and mine is obviously working. My users can update their profiles directly on the site, so it's not permissions. 

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.



"Read Only" Access Error when checking in documents from outlook



We are accessing our sharepoint services 3.0 document library through outlook 2007.

We can open the files in word/excel etc, but when we go to check-in the document the application tells us that we only have read access to the document, and cant check the document back in to the server.

It works fine via the browser, the read only problem is only when checking out through outlook.

I have given all users full access and design access to the doc library.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Outlook Unable to connect to MySite's "Social Network"

Running into a really odd issue. I have to farms configred pretty much identically, a production farm and a dev farm. For some reason I'm able to set up a social network connection from outlook to my dev farm without any problems but I get "invalid user name or password" when I try and connect tot he production farm.

Custom activity feed.

I am trying to implement activity feed functionality for SharePoint sites. User should be able to follow activities (document added, delete etc.) on multiple SharePoint sites by subscribing to it. All sites are available for all authenticated users. Users have the option of unsubscribing to it at any time. I know that I can add custom activities. The question that I have is how can I publish these events to only users who have subscribed to the site. There are about 50K users. Does SharePoint 2010 provide any mechanism for storing who has subscribed to what site and use that to publish the events?

Access is denied error thrown in "Setup Secure Session" activity


Could someone help me with the following issue, please?

System setup:
- Windows 2008 R2 server hosting both MVC2 web application and WCF service for it;
- users connect to the web application which gets all data from the WCF services;
- WCF services are resused by several other applications (WinForms based) which work fine and have never experienced any security related problems;
- MVC2 uses impersonation (<identity impersonate="true"/>) to connect to WCF services, so we have single security boundary for both web and winforms clients (which are out of scope of the problem);
- both MVC2 web application and WCF services share the same ASP.NET v4.0 DefaultAppPool application pool, running under NetworkService identity;
- all users, user PCs and servers belong to the same AD domain, which is a part of global corporate tree;
- all unhandled exceptions are automatically caught by the web application and forwarded to application developers' e-mail box;
- WCF binding setup in web application:

    <binding name="WSHttpBinding_BifrostServices" closeTimeout="00:10:00"
     openTimeout="00:10:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00"

Disable a Specific News Feed Activity Using the Client Object Model


Hello and thanks for reading. I've been working with the out-of-box SharePoint 2010 News Feed portion of My Sites, and I am planning to deploy it to many users.

I am building a console application which will iterate through all of the my sites currently in the system and un-check one of the "Activities I am following' for each user. I have used the example provided at this link(MSDN) to come up with the following code:


 Public Class ChangeActivity

 'Reference: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff426883.aspx'

 Public Shared Sub ChangeActivityProperties()

		Using siteCol As New SPSite((My.Application.CommandLineArgs(0)))

					Dim context As SPServiceContext = SPServiceContext.GetContext(siteCol)

					Dim profileManager As New UserProfileManager(context)

					Dim profile As UserProfile = profileManager.GetUserProfile("THEDOMAIN\username")

					Dim activityMan As ActivityManager = New ActivityManager(profile, context)

					'Create an instance of a list of ActivityPreferencePerType objects.'

					Dim activityPrefsPerType As New List(Of ActivityPreferencePerType)(activityMan.ActivityTypes.Count)
