Feature Install/Activation not creating List Instance

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I have created a feature that includes a form template, two list templates (one for a doc library that uses the form and another for a custom task list template), and two list instances.  The idea is that I want installation/activation of the feature to create and register the form template, to set up the two list templates, and then to create an instance of each list template (i.e. a Doc Library and a Task List based on my templates).

The feature installs fine, and all templates are created.  However, no instances are created.  Best I can tell I have the required XML files set up as required.  There are no errors that I've been able to isolate in the SharePoint logs.

Anyone have any ideas why I might not be getting the list instances?  Below are my XMLs...

FEATURE.XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"

Feature Upgrade Functionality - Adding a new Content Type and List Instance

  
I've successfully used the upgrade functionality in SP 2010 to upgrade my list structures as needed. So far, these updates have been adding new fields to existing content types. Now, I have some new fields, content types and list instances to add, and am having trouble getting this accomplished. The scenario is this: - A new content type with a single custom field (also new), and a list instance for this new content type - A new field that is a lookup back to the new list instance defined above. This new field is added as an existing content type. - In my feature.xml, I have the Element Manifest specified with both new fields and an AddContentTypeField element for the new field being added to an existing content type:   <ApplyElementManifests> <ElementManifest Location="V1_04\Elements.xml"/> </ApplyElementManifests> <AddContentTypeField ContentTypeId="0x0100..." FieldId="{8028A1C8-1147-4DF7-B5C3-8A1F84A30360}" PushDown="TRUE"/> The result of running the update on this feature is: - My new field that is part of an existing content type is added - My new field that is part of a new content type/instance is added - My new content type and list instance is NOT created, therefore my lookup is broken Any idea why my new Content Type and List Instance is not being created? Do I need to specify there

Best method for creating a site definition containing a custom list instance

  

Hi,

I want to create a new site definition which, when provisioned, includes an instance of a custom list. The custom list definition is contained in a feature as part of the site definition project. What's the best method for creating an instance of this custom list?

I can think of a few ways to do it:

- Modify the onet.xml for my site definition to include an instance of the list

- Use feature stapling to enable my custom list defintion feature when a site is provisioned using my new site definition and include a list instance in the feature.

Is there another more suitable method?

Thanks,

Rob


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).

Activation error occured while trying to get instance of type Database, key "DBName"

  

Im using Enterprise library 5.0
I have a scenario, where I have to access two different databases in my application.

Basically this application is a webservice,delployed on my local for testing purpose.
I'm trying to access this web method from diffent windows application, default connection works fine but the other database throw's exception.

Problem is only my defaultDatabase is works fine, if I change defaultDatabase="MYCON1" with "MYCON2" it works fine, if I try to access the other database which is not default, throws exception.

<dataConfiguration defaultDatabase="MYCON1" />
<connectionStrings>
<add name="MYCON1" connectionString="Data Source=server1;Initial Catalog=dbName1;User Id=Username1;Password=password1;"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient

" />
<add name="MYCON2" connectionString="Data Source=Server2;Initial Catalog=dbName2;User Id=Username2;Password=password2;"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
</connectionStrings>


Database myDB=EnterpriseLibraryContainer.Current.GetInstance<Database>(); --> works fine for the default database (MYCON1)


Database myDB=EnterpriseLibraryCo

Assigning users when creating a list item in a workflow

  

I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.  When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.  When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.  How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?  Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?

Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature

  

I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.

named instance sql server 2008 install on cluster

  
I have a production two-node cluster with sql server 2008 sp1 cu7 running over windows server 2008 sp2. If I were to install a new named instance on this live environment, would it impair the default sql server instance functionality? I'm not referring to processor/io while the install is in progress. My question specifically is would the install process by its nature bring down the default instance. I'm pretty sure it won't, but don't see any documentation that would confirm this. thanks.

How to debug feature activation by PowerShell

  
Hello, I got a bunch of wsp files with double the number features from my visual studio 2010 solution. So now I'm using PowerShell to add and install the wsp files to my server and to activate the features for the target site. In Visual Studio 2010 rightlicking and hitting "deploy" works perfectly fine while the PowerShellscript fails with a NullReferenceException. Is there a way to locate the error? I've tried to debug the PowerShell process but when VS2010 opens up to debug the process I get an empty window without any code. I'm using a Windows Server 2008 R2, SharePoint 2010 RTM and Visual Studio 2010 RTM.

Error creating Read Item or Read List operation in Sharepoint Designer 2010

  
In terms of high-level requirements, I need to pull in lists from a couple of different web apps.  To do this, I’m using SPD 2010 to create an External Content Type for the list of interest.  I’m able to create a SOAP Service or WCF Service connection just fine.  However, when I try to create the external content type and create a Read Item Operation on one of the GetList or any other Get* (or other Update methods for that matter) methods, I get the following error:"The method that your operation is based on has parameters with complex types that do not have default parameterless constructor.  This kind of data source methods cannot be used in Business Data Catalog."I tried defining an operation on the “AddAttachment” method, and that worked just fine.  I also tried providing default values to the listName and viewName parameters when creating the SOAP Service connection, but still get the error.  Same issue with a WCF Service connection as well. Does anyone know if this is a 2010 issue, or am I approaching this requirement incorrectly?  What are other approaches for connecting to lists that reside in a different web app than yours?

SharePoint List Source and Destination BIDS adapters not working for our sharepoint instance

  
It was with great anticipation I installed the SharePoint List Source and Destination BIDS adapters (from CodePlex, http://sqlsrvintegrationsrv.codeplex.com/releases/view/17652). Unfortunately, the adapters are not working for our MOSS sharepoint instance.  We're a DOD (department of defense) site, so the level of security may be higher than normal and may be affecting the adapters. The error message was lengthy and I couldn't copy it and paste here.  I did screen shots and put the complete error message at http://www.christianbahnsen.com/sharepoint_source_error_message.pdf If I can get this to work I think it would be very useful.  I'd played around with KPI Lists, but one cannot create an Indicator directly from SQL Server 2008 (cf. my related thread at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointbi/thread/bcc95f65-012e-4b8a-8850-b03fb0f16b0f).  I was hoping that these adapters would provide a work-around by populating sharepoint lists that could be the source for KPI Indicators. As always, thanks in advance for any assistance. Christian Bahnsen
