Defining information management policy on a library not working

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I've created a WF in SPD that generates a task to copy an expired item to a Records Center. The WF works properly.  I then defined an IMP on the library to fire off the WF when the expiration date is reached. But nothing happens. The IMP never fires the WF. Any ideas?

Information Management Policy - Expiration not working

I've defined a new policy for my list.
The policy has expiration enabled.
The expiration date is WarningDate (required list field - date and time) + 0 days and the expiration should trigger the custom workflow, which would send the warning, but is now only setting the status to Warned.
The workflow works fine when executed manually, but never seems to be actually executed by the item expiration.

I've also updated the "information management policy" job to run every 5 minutes, but it didn't help.
What as I missing?

Information Management Policy & Disposition Workflow


I would like to set an information management policy that enbles expiration of documents in my document library. I then want this to kick off a disposition workflow that will then allow the owner of the content (i.e. the last person to modify the document, or creator if it has not been modified) to either delete the document or do nothing. This is all simple to do. My question is: When the disposition workflow kicks off, does it send an email to the document owner or does it simply ceate a task in the specified task list?


If it only creates a task, is it possible to notify the document owner that a task has been created? I don't want docment owners to have to have to keep checking the task list, I want an email sent to them whenever a document is about to expire. Is this possible?

Information Management Policy & Exempt from Policy flag


Hi all,


does anyone know why the "Information Management Policy" in MOSS sets a 'yes' flag (in the 'exempt from policy' column) on the document library automatically when the specific document expires? 


And more importantly is there a way of getting around this?


What I am trying to achieve is a periodic document review schedule without having to create custom workflows in Visual Studio, and preferably sticking with the out of the box approval workflow to ease the rollout of team sites from a site template.


I thought this could be accomplished by using the Information Management Policy on the DL, but I guess not if after the first review date arrives the document is then exempt from any following dates.





Information Management Policy to clean up the Workflow History List?


I have several InfoPath 2007 forms (with workflows) that are heavily used in my MOSS 2007 environment, and the some of the Workflow History lists are very large need to be cleaned up.  I'm trying to use an (Expiration) Information Management Policy to delete items in the Workflow History list that are Last Modified + X days , but haven't had much success.  Has anyone else had success doing this?


Information Management Policy not triggering SPD workflow


Hi All,

I have a document library with no special fields (i.e. Lookups) and I have created a workflow via SPD to create a task to review the document and send to a Records Center, if necessary. The WF is working properly.

I then set an Information Management Policy on the library through the SharePoint UI following these steps:

1. Define a policy...
2. Policy Statement: This document expires in 1 day (testing)
3. Checked "Enable Expiration ":
       The retention period is: Modified + 1 + days
       When the item expires:
       Start this workflow: IMP WF Test 2

But the IMP never triggers the workflow.

  • I have checked the "Information Management Policy Configuration" via Central Administration, and "Expiration" is available and set to run daily.
  • I have tried the "Process Expired Items Now" manual option via the CA "Configure Expiration" page.
  • I have tried this with "Require Check Out" enabled and disabled with no success in either case.
  • I have tried this with Publishing features enabled and disabled with no success.
  • I have combed this forum thoroughly looking for similar situations and possible resolutions w

Information Management Policy Settings link not display


I am trying to enable Information Management in Sharepoint  server 2010 but when i go to the Library or List Settings page there is no link to Information Management Policy Settings on the page.

I've been searching for an hour and can find no information to tell me how to enable this option.  Any hints would be appreciated.


Localization not working in class library (composite control)



I have a class library called WEM.portal which used Resource files to localise text in my composite controls.

I store my resource files (eg MyResourceFile1.resx) in App_GlobalResources folder and then refer to them using

MyLabel1.text = My.Resources.MyResourceFile1.MyResourceKey1

This is all working ok until I create seperate files for each language such as MyResourceFile1.FR-fr.resx.

I have implemented this throughout my other web applications but the Class Library doesnt seem to want to work the same way

When I load the page it correctly showes the resourced keys which I have done through the web application BUT the resource keys in the composite controls does not seem to pick up the culture code.

Am I missing something stupid. Ive tried

  • changing the Build Action on the resource file to Content and Custom tool to GlobalResourceProxyGenerator
  • Creating a resourceManager but to no avail


Visual Basic: Inspect COM Components Using the TypeLib Information Object Library


The built-in Object Browser in Visual Basic, like other component browsers such as OLE View and XRay, is one of the more useful tools. But an even better tool would be customizable. You can build your own type library browser using the TypeLib Information Object Library (TLI), a set of COM objects designed to allow programmers to browse type libraries programmatically. This article explains type libraries and the TLI object model, and shows how to use the collections to get information about objects, leading to the creation of a custom type library explorer.

Information Policy options missing?

I've set up a Content Type Hub to allow me to publish content types to all site collections. However, doing this appears to have removed the Information Management Policy Settings link on the settings page for the content type. Does this mean that you can't set IM policy on Published Content Types?  

using policy based management to exclude database access

After reading information on the link http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1492 I was wondering whether its possible to have a policy in place such that database A cannot make reference to objects in database_B, I am guessing that one would have a policy such that the contents of the objects must not be like %database_B.%   Let me know whether there is a better way to do this. Thanks.

P3P Policy not working in IE8 in Windows 7


Ok folks, I have an interesting problem. iFrames, P3P... If you know about P3P stuff, then you probably know the deal. Site a hosts my site, site b in an iFrame. Cookies are being rejected.

Here's the twist: The P3P policy for my site works in IE6 and IE7, but it doesn't seem to appease IE8... I get the evil eye still. Any thoughts on what I could be missing?

I am sending headers via my golbal.aspx (not as part of IIS, which means .js files and images aren't getting a compact header, does this matter?)

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Also: I have confirmed that this site works in Windows Vista, it is only the Windows 7 version of IE8 where it fails!
