There is a product called Duet that is jointly developed by the teams at MS and SAP. http://www.duet.com/ Its sole purpose is to integrate data, content, and processes between the platforms.

To avoid the listview threshold, you need to index columns in your library and query against that column. So long as the number of rows returned in your query is below the listview threshold, you won't get the exception. As an example, I hit this problem when trying to retrieve all the folders in a SharePoint library. The number of folders was well below ...

In Central Administration you can disable the list threshold completely, or set a higher limit. You can also set a time window when the limit is disabled and run your report service then. Go to the web application management page in central administration and select the Resource Throttling option from the General Settings button in the ribbon. If you CAML ...

Yes; you can totally accomplish what you wish without a deep knowledge of TFS. I will provide some tips that I hope will save you a lot of time without looking through all the MS documentation and you might even consider a different route after you read this... First, know that there is a customizable set of files that comprise a Process Template; a ...

You can use the ContentIterator class to bypass the list view threshold, but you would need to resort to custom code to fetch the data. Documentation: "Provides methods to iterate list items, lists, sites to regulate the amount of data that is transferred (i.e., to avoid throwing a SPQueryThrottledException)."

I am not a big fan of mixing the two, but it can be done. My preference is to either integrate and deploy the app to SharePoint or run it on a separate web application in IIS. The request handling process was rewritten with 2007 so there is no longer an "excluded paths" option in the Managed Paths section. If you create a folder in the root of the web ...

There are two possible options If you don't have enabled IFD (and therefore claims based authentication), the simplest solution would be to configure IE, to pass the credentials of the current windows user to the site. Therefore you have to adjust the security configuration of the zone assigned to the SharePoint URL, to send the credentials of the current ...

In a word, no. SharePoint Server can host Excel workbooks in SharePoint pages using Excel Services, but these do not support Macros (for various reasons, the main one is to prevent malicious code from being executed).

I suggest that you review "Customizing Team Foundation Server Project Portals". It has most of the details of how the integration works. In your case, you may not need to change the site definition, but rather may only need to provision the document library folders and documents. A next step would be to create one or more custom features to add custom ...

A similar question: Need to expose internal Sharepoint 2010 Document Library to External website IMHO using web service to get documents from SharePoint is right way of doing it. You can handle all login/authentication on your website and you can develop custom control to display sharepoint documents. Using iframe is quick and dirty way of doing it. Some ...

SSRS 2008 R2 has a SharePoint data source option that was added. The SharePoint data source will perform a series of 2000 max item queries until the entire query has been completed. This allows you to overcome the list view threshold and not majorly affect performance. PowerPivot performs this even better. It will query the lists 1000 rows at a time and ...

@Robert, I tried the constructor idea and found that this: I use this url to get to a document library (note the parameter wortony=1): http://sps2010servername/Docs/Forms/AllItems.aspx?wortony=1&InitialTabId=Ribbon%2EDocument&VisibilityContext=WSSTabPersistence When I use the New document process from SharePoint the constructor fires and the ...

SharePoint exposes an API, and you can find there a service for accessing lists and the list items: ListData.svc a wcf service that follows REST protocol. Here's a link with a tutorial on how to do it: http://www.learningsharepoint.com/2010/07/09/get-list-items-in-sharepoint-2010/ If you are having trouble with the CAML query, use the CAML query builder ...

While the choice for this questioner is to raise the limit, it's there for a good reason: to avoid creating poorly performing sites. As your site grows in content, or it becomes a template for other sites, you'll find that every user hitting the pages that require "relaxing' this restriction will cause your site to slow down. The more users, the faster that ...

I've also been trying to run this to ground with similar results. My code is very similar to what you have above so maybe I am missing something as well, but what I have found out, is that the Claims to Windows Token Service (C2WTS) creates a windows token that is valid ONLY for that SharePoint box when using web services. You might want to verify that ...

Just confirming, are you using Kerberos? Source: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh231678.aspx Any service that relies on the Claims to Windows token service (C2WTS) must use Kerberos constrained delegation to allow C2WTS to use Kerberos protocol transition to translate claims into Windows credentials. Did you set up the SPNs correctly? They ...

how does everyone make Sharepoint integrate smoothly with day-to-day tasks like this?? The short answer, it is a bit of give and take. While some things are more difficult to begin with, there are many advantages. The key is to provide adequate training and manage the change (notifications, nominated "experts" in each dept to provide assistance). ...

I would evaluate whether AJAX XMPP library could be used by writing a piece of JavaScript that finds the required content on the page and appends presence details. Just like Lync does it UI-wise. Might be a stoopid idea in practice, but that's where I'd start.

Thomas, you can use port 443 to this effect.

You could, also, disable the EnableThrottling property for the specific list with too many items as Michael Morrison wrote here: $web = Get-SPWeb http://url/to/web/with/list $list = $web.Lists[“BIG_LIST_NAME”] $list.EnableThrottling = $false Good luck!

SharePoint Search supported Federated Searches. If your document control system supports Open search, the task is a lot easier. If not, then you'll need to build that connection. Federated Search is the way to go though (at least to start with).

One way of achieving this is to use custom content type. Just create a list in your sharepoint site with content type as Link. You can do this by Creating new content type from Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Content Types -> Create, and there select List Content Type -> Link (parent content type). Now your lists can hold link to a Web ...

I would use jQuery to inject the dialog to every external link. Add jQuery and the following script to .master page, something like: $("a:not([href^='http://current.sharepointsite.com'])").click(function(){ alert("You're about to leave SharePoint"); }); Or use some ready made jQuery plugin here.

Ideally, The consumers of a Web Service do not need to know anything about the platform, object model, or programming language used to implement the service; they only need to understand how to send and receive SOAP messages (HTTP and XML). However, from SP2003 to SP2007 to SP2010, SiteData.asmx have evolved with new webmethods. So if you use those new ...

All of the code for SharePoint Server 2003 / WSS 2.0 had to be redone with the move to MOSS 2007 / WSS 3.0 because of the change in the underlying .net Framework and the adoption of Web Parts within the normal ASP.NET framework. There were a lot of things that did change, and in my case upgrading my customizations meant rewrite in most cases. The web ...

In SharePoint 2010 the Business Connectivity tooling is greatly improved and much easier to use. You will probably want to use BCS to talk to SAP through their NetWeaver Gateway add-on. The Duet Enterprise product that Mike refers to is an additional product that does a lot of the hard work for you on both the SAP and the SharePoint side - but this could ...

If you have it available, perhaps consider combining the search API and a web service? Search can index and return a much larger number of fields. Its a roundabout way of getting at the data but it is supportable.

If you're in the SSRS Config wizard you'll find links to the reporting services web service - these can be copied & pasted into a browser window to test for connectivity. I've found that the Event Log can be helpful to find out what's causing the problems, usually SQL or IIS will throw a more detailed error here which may help.

You might want to investigate building a custom Single Sign-On Provider. MSDN has an example at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms566925(office.12).aspx
