For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
I have been trying for a couple of weeks to get this rolling and am pulling out what little hair I have left. I have a custom list and when an item gets added, I have a workflow set to create an item in an external list. So I associate the workflow with the custom list and target the external list. This is supposed to be possible. In SharePoint designer, I can target the external list by selecting a 2010 workflow but when it comes to mapping the fields, all I get is a blank list. I have tried the same operation using Visual Studio. There, it will not even let me target the external list. I have tried this in SharePoint Online as well as on-premises 2016 Sharepoint Server. I have tried using SP Designer and VS from my desktop as well as from installed on the server. I have all of the credentials I need - I am site admin/owner. There has got to be a small setup piece that I am missing because I have seen many posts where people have done exactly what I am describing and only a couple of posts where people have encountered the same issue I am having. In those cases, no meaningful help was ever offered. Hoping some kind sole reads this and passes on the key. Thanks!!!
The set of claims could not be mapped to a single user identity. Exception 3001003;reason=The incoming identity is mapped to more than one user profile account in SharePoint
so Into User Profile Service I go.
Looking thru the User Profile service discovered I had two user profiles due to Domain name changes from mergers etc.... Ended up deleting one of the userprofiles and everything worked.
Central Admin || Application Management || Manage Service Applications || User Profile Service Application.
Search for and find the Account that is kicking off the workflow. In my case it was my own. In many cases it might be others.
Delete the one that you don't need. In my case there was a olddomain\myUsername Pretty easy to find.
Things then worked fine.

The issue is related to SharePoint 2013. The size of 'WSS_Content' content database is 111 GB and consists of migrated SharePoint 2010 site collections via Sharegate. Now, i want to delete all the site collections without deleting the database. How do i do that?
Hi, When I'm trying to access Sharepoint admin it's sending me message. I'm unauthorized.
My admin also don't know how to give me access. Do you have any specific steps to share point to follow in admin panel for upgrading my account? Thanks
1. Migration would be better thru backup and restore and powershell migration routines. I get though if you are trying to jump from 2013 to 2019 and don't have a good 2016 instance to have in between. ShareGate is primarily a copy and merge tool as well as Security for SharePoint.
2. Yes you could do this if you only have certain sites you want to move around. It won't be extremely fast but it will work.
All in all. ShareGate is a fantastic tool. I like it alot. But it isn't always fast.

is there a way to have that SharePoint List (Modified in InfoPath) field populate with the current user if someone else is later editing the item?
Note: Setting default value "username()" function only populates in Newform not in Edit form. any workaround?
I have a standard search resultSearchWebPart.
I want to delete in my search duplicates on file names.
For that we must redo the query with the KeywordQuery.
I managed to get a result in a ResultTable variable without my duplicate files.
This code I put in the Render function, but then we need to develop the display in my webpart (writer).
My problem is that I can not replace the result of the current query in the standard view of my webpart (with the display template).
Do you have an idea how to replace the standard search query of my webpart by keeping the standard view. My goal is to remove duplicates on filenames.
ie: I do not want to redesign the my webpart to make it a fully customized webpart.
Internet Explorer 11 or later, which must be installed but doesn't have to be the default browser. To support Office Add-ins, the Office client that acts as host uses browser components that are part of Internet Explorer 11 or later.

Hi, we have a standard SharePoint 2007 Intranet. I would like some users to be able to edit a document however they cannot see the Site Actions -> View All Site Content. I'd rather they don't have access to edit pages, what is the best way of providing this?
I've given them access on the file itself however when they open the document and edit and save it, a message appears saying the file is read-only. Can anybody please advise/help? Thanks
