SharePoint tool - update metadata, permissions of sites, lists,listitems

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi All,

 

I am setting a SharePoint test environment with loads of data.

I could some how manage to use tools to populate data in Sharepoint.

But I couldn't find a way to

1) Modify the sites/lists/listitems in an easy way without me havng to manually perform that

As I had 200GB of data with some thousands of sites and lists, I am not able to manage this data manually.

For my testing to run smoothly, I need to be able to add/delete/modify the metadata, permissions of many objects easily

 

Can someone suggest me  a tool which allows me to do this kind of functionality

 

Thanks

Carol

SharePoint tool - sites, subsites,lists,listitems creation

  

Hi All

Recently I am investigating on a tool which can do the following-

1) helps in creating multiple number of sites, subsites, lists and list items

without having me to manually do all those actions.

 

 

This is because I am in the process of building a test environment for SharePoint which needs to have 100GB of data dispersed among different sites and subsites which turns out to be really tedious for me to create all these manually and fill the data

Does anyone have any idea of existence of such a tool.

 

Can some one help me with ideas to achieve this

 

Thanks

Carol

 


Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

  
Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

How to connect text file data to native SharePoint lists with auto update?

  

I have to pull external data from a text file to a SharePoint list on a daily base. Additional column content (e.g. attachments) in SharePoint should be kept during update. There should be RSS feeds, email notifications or workflows on external data change (so delete all items and import new will not work).

I've found this codeless 3rd party solution with automatic background update (and write-back???):

Any other idea? BDC-based? Thanks.

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

  
When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

SharePoint Tutorial - Team Sites

  
Team sites are small web sites that are created to store everything about a particular thing. For example a site can be created for a department in an organization like human resources. I site can be created for a particular project. A site can even be created for a meeting. Everything about the thing (department, project, meeting) like documents, lists, calendars, etc. is stored in that site.

SharePoint Tutorial - Lists

  
A list is a feature in SharePoint that stores a lists of information. For example, a list can be created to store web links in the human resources team site. A list is usually created for a specific type of information. Lists can contain metadata to describe the particular information in more detail and to make it easier to find.

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

  
Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this? 

Sharepoint My Sharepoint Sites not updating.

  

The sharepoint My Sharepoint Sites list will not update.  It last updated with the results from 4/22/10. I determined that by looking in out Share Sevices Administration  database in the memberGroup table.  It shows current entries for everything prefaced by Mailto:   So the distribution groups are updating however, nothing is updating for the actual sites.  New sites have been added since this time and Membership in the Members group of these sites has  changed as well but none of these changes have been reflected i nthe My sharepoint sites.   These changes also do not appear in the My Memberships portion of someone's My Site.  Any suggestions?

 

We are running Sharepoint 2007 SP2 with W.S.S. 3.0 on a Windows srver 2003 R2 SP2 server.    No changes were made to the system on the date in question.  Perhaps 3 new team sites has been added in the days leading up to the problem. 

We see no errors in any of the timer jobs or the event logs that appear related to the issue.

 

 


Best Practices for developing accessible web sites in SharePoint 2007

  

I'm currently busy with an overview of Best Practices for developing accessible web sites in SharePoint 2007. After a little research I have noticed that the challenges I have faced so far are mostly XHTML/CSS/JS related and there are actually very few SharePoint 2007 specific issues: this has to do with the fact that we use very little to none of standard SharePoint controls in the Internet facing web sites we deliver.

 

As I would like to share the Best Practices I'm writing with the community I've been wondering whether you have tried to develop an accessible web site in SharePoint 2007 yourself and faced any challenges you would like to share. To make myself clear I'm looking for issues and challenges and not solutions in particular (these are welcome as well by the way).
