I have a scenario to query all the lists and document libraries in my web application (entire site collection) and display all checked out items to me using query . This is been done and the problem is the web part is returning no items it pops up the message "Your query returned a greater number of results than the web application's query throttling limit. Please adjust the configuration of this Web Part or increase the throttling limit." I did not apply any filters , no sorting is also done. I just added cal query in query string .I don't have any access to central admin to set the limit up. Any other ideas.Any suggestions on the same.

Since you cannot bend the rule, you have to abide. So if you cannot change the throttling limit, you should apply filters. E.g. get results in batches of 30 days

  • but in filters i don't see any option to add checked out to me . What ilter you want me to apple for?
