I created a custom list definition in Visual Studio. Then, I generated a .wsp and sent it to our server admin to install. He got a warning:
The solution contains no Web application scoped resource, and therefore cannot be deployed to a particular Web application. It can only be deployed globally.
Deploying this solution will place assemblies in the global assembly cache. This will grant the solution assemblies full trust. Do not procees unless you trust the solution provider.
He wants me to change the feature scope to web application. I looked, and the feature scope is currently set to web (web site).
My understanding is that list definitions need to go in the GAC ... am I wrong? If I'm right, how do I prove this to the server admin?
My understanding is that the server administrator is trying to install to one web application only, using Install-SPSolution -Identity -WebApplication . I tried changing the scope to WebApplication, but got an error: "The project item ‘Project Name’ cannot be deployed through a Feature with WebApplication scope.”
