Expanding on what others have written above, in SharePoint 2010 and 2013 it depends on the type of authentication you've setup your Web Application with. For classic mode you only have windows authentication so NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users will grant access to anyone that can authenticate with a valid windows credential. For claims mode you'll have at ...

Well, SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges should do the trick. Make sure, you create a new SPSite/SPWeb within the elevated code block: var siteId = SPContext.Current.Site.ID; SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate() { using (SPSite site = new SPSite(siteId)) { //do things on the new site object } });

Warning Depending on the number of documents you expect your users to store in SharePoint it sounds as if you're heading in the direction of disaster, by storing everything in the same Site in the same Site Collection.

Yes, absolutely. In 2010+, it's the group NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users Before that, it was "All Authenticated Users"

This usually happens when something on the page accesses data of some sort that the user does not have access to. It prompts you for credentials 3 times and then after the third time it should fail to load whatever it was trying to access because you don't actually have access, but the rest of the page loads. The item failing could be something from another ...

You should uninherit the permissions for that library. Go to that library. Go to the Library Tools highlighted section at the top and click the Library tab Click Library Permissions. Click the Uninherit button. This will uninherit the permission from the site but copy over what it has already. Delete the users you don't want to see the library. Add the ...

You can save the list in SharePoint 2007 with content - you can then save the .stp to the file system and you'll need to open up the .stp file (rename it to cab). You then need to update the version number within the manifest file from 3 to 4 and recab it. You can then upload the new .stp to SharePoint 2010 and create your list.

I believe John is correct if you are limited to Out-of-the-box solutions but there is another option if custom code is available to you. Create your own application page to handle Access Requests and have it generate the email in whatever format you want. Since you would be creating this email in your own code, you would control all addresses used so you ...

After sifting through your log dump, here's what stands out at me. The first errors you encounter start at: 02/15/2013 12:29:26.60 w3wp.exe (0×1024) 0x208C SharePoint Foundation General adyrv High Cannot find site lookup info for request Uri http://win-fdshjv8jiql:32843/86ed9d455deb4308b14ed8f76394e215/AccessService.svc. ...

Is the Access service started on at least one server in Manage Services on Server Have you tried the installation on a physical box (non-VM)? Believe it or not, this can have an impact and it will help us narrow it down to a VM setting. What permissions does the App Pool Identity have (database, local)?

The short answer is you don't. Directly interacting with a SharePoint content database will cause your SharePoint installation to lose Microsoft support. This applies even to just using SELECT statements without changing any data. Any interactions with SharePoint should be performed via the object model.

I think for this you can use the List.SystemUpdate() With item.Update(), we update the changes that are made to the list item. Is that all what it does? No, internally it also updates the "ModifiedBy" and "ModifiedOn" fields as per the current logged in user and current server time. Optionally it also updates the version of the item if the Versioning option ...

You can do it via Central Admin but I would not recommend it use this procedure for all the authenticated users. In Central Admin, go to Application Management, then click on 'Policy for Web application' under 'Application Security'. Select the SharePoint web application you're uploading documents to and click 'Add Users'. Select the desired zone (or 'All ...

You need to enable auditing at the web application level and then enable Opening or downloading documents, viewing items in lists, or viewing item properties in the Site Collection Audit Settings in Site Settings of the site collection. You can then collect data and run reports to see who accessed what and when.

I must confess is the 1st time i've heard that same account is used by the multiple people (except for Administratrive accounts) also because I'm not sure Microsoft would be happy with this model due to the CALs implications, not to mention the fact that this defeats the whole purpose of data security, permissions and overall you loose any sense of tracking ...

For SharePoint data, you don't access the underlying SQL data directly. Microsoft doesn't support doing this and you will be in an unsupported state. To access SharePoint data you should use the object models provided by Microsoft. These include through C#/VB, Web Services, and JavaScript.

Not a hundred percent sure about this particular webpart, but most times when this type of issues occur, it is because the functionality is dependent on some Active X components to interact with your computer. Only Internet Explorer can work with Active X. For some functions, Microsoft have tried to find alternative solutions (that is probable the reason ...

This is done because access to lower level objects require some limited access to higher level objects. Please see this post for more details. Essentially, SharePoint's internal calls to lower level objects would break without the "limited access" to higher level objects. I'm assuming that this is done at the time inheritance is broken, because it would be ...

You need to instead, use folders. You can break out the column values into respective folders and apply uninherited permissions to each folder. That way you will have a true security level for each "column"--which is now a folder. You can thus delete the column from the list, once all the data has been moved into their own folders. EDIT: Views will display ...

You cannot index a list that exceeds the threshold. This is explained in this Microsoft article: Manage lists and libraries with many items Because creating an index requires accessing all items in the list, it's possible you may be blocked from creating an index for a column if the entire list exceeds the List View Threshold. If this occurs, do the ...
