I am trying to confirm in SharePoint SE whether the timer job for modifying webconfigs is still available. In other earlier versions it is called job-webconfig-modifications. I have tried searching for it, but can't find it. Is it used or is called by a different name, and if so what is it called?
It should be the same; you will see it when you change the web.config file using the SharePoint Powershell.
You can run the following code to get the running jobs
Get-SPTimerJob -Identity "job-webconfig-modification" | Format-Table DisplayName,Id,LastRunTime,Status
some sample code to update the web.config
$app = Get-SPWebApplication http://test:8000/ $mod = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebConfigModification $mod.Path = “configuration/SharePoint/WebPartLimits” $mod.Name = “MaxZoneParts” $mod.Value = “100” $mod.Sequence = 0 $mod.Owner = “webpartmod” $mod.Type = 1 $app.WebConfigModifications.Add($mod) $app.update() $app.WebService.ApplyWebConfigModifications();
