Using Sharepoint UI is there a way of knowing what event receiver is installed against a library?

I have a event receiver that adds installed against document library and all it does is to set item level permission when a document is added. I'm documenting the customizations that have been done so far and wanted to know if there is a quick UI based way of determining if there are any event receiver registered against a library.


There isn't anything in the standard SharePoint UI which can show event receivers.

But there are several codeplex project which might help you. If you don't mind it being a utility to run on the servers then SharePoint Manager is a utility which will give you all the information you want about your SharePoint farm

  • Thanks @PJ. At the end created a webservice that does this....... SPSite site = new SPSite("mysite"); SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb(); SPList list = web.Lists["My Documents"]; Console.WriteLine(list.EventReceivers.Count + " found"); foreach (SPEventReceiverDefinition listItem in list.EventReceivers) { Console.WriteLine(listItem.Class + "\nType: " + listItem.Type); } – Abhijit Aug 21 '12 at 18:34
