I can show how to get this using JavaScript and REST: $.ajax({ url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/RoleDefinitions/getByName('Contribute')", async: false, headers: { 'accept': 'application/json;odata=nometadata' }, complete: function (request) { var basePermissions = new SP.BasePermissions(); ...

their is no dedicated browser for the SharePoint rather they call it supported. As per my experience best browser is always IE. If you follow this Official documentation they mentioned Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Internet Explorer 10, Internet Explorer 9, Internet Explorer 8 but with certain limitation with IE 11 in Edge Mode as well as Edge ...

Farm build number will increase only if you will run SharePoint Configuration Wizard after SharePoint cumulative updates(or service pack) installation. You do not need to run SharePoint Configuration Wizard after installation Windows server updates. If you will plan to install .Net security patches - be careful with this. It may affect Workflow ...

All the approaches you outlined are identical. If you add them to the Office 365 Group in the various ways you can do so, they will have the appropriate access to Teams, SharePoint, and any other associated applications (Planner, Yammer, Stream, etc.).

this is becuase of the way you are performing the backups of your db. When you make the backup, change the Backup Set Name. Remove all of the destinations listed, and add 1 new destination. Do a full backup. Restore this back file . Source Also the answer here to understand it.https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/abf50e00-c9b0-4809-9e61-...

The best browser choice really depends on the work that you want to achieve in SharePoint. I am a developer and I know that Chrome works best , especially when you are trying to debug your JavaScript codes . Internet explorer is really good if you want to play around with OOTB features , configure web parts but again asy friend mentioned pages will load ...

Like others have pointed out there is no great browser experience for SharePoint On-Prem but IE unfortunately is the best with the most OOB functionality. You can also use chrome and use a chrome extension called IE Tab which can add a lot of the functions you lose when using Chrome vs IE. It does tend to be finicky every once in awhile but from its ...

You need to use SetShowInEditForm and SetShowInDisplayForm when using CSOM. Modify it as below: $customfield.SetShowInEditForm($true) $customfield.SetShowInDisplayForm($true) Reference - Field.SetShowInEditForm method Field.SetShowInDisplayForm method

Use the following script as mentioned in https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/spjr/2018/02/07/sharepoint-the-complete-guide-to-portalsuperuseraccount-and-portalsuperreaderaccount/ Output super user / reader for all web apps: add-pssnapin microsoft.sharepoint.powershell -ea silentlycontinue $was = Get-SPWebApplication foreach ($wa in $was) {Write-host "...

I dont think you will find any browser that works best because from my experience each browser has some shortcomings when it comes to SharePoint. If you try "Open with Explorer" in Edge it won't work there as well. You can't force browsers to support features that aren't available. There are a lot of things that are reliant on ActiveX controls rather than ...

Looks like you dont have Usage service configured or it is deleted or its database deleted. Open the Central admin > go to Application management > Manage Service Application. On this page look for "Usage and Health Data Collection Service Application", if it is there then click on it. if it is not their then thats means service never provisioned or ...

I am afraid that we cannot force the browser cache to get expired from SharePoint online side. The users’ browser cache only can be cleared by themselves. You could remind the users to clear browser cache.

This is an error you can ignore, likely a bug. It appears to impact any job that uses the SPWorkItemJobDefinition class.

There is a way to access details about flows attached to the list using the CSOM. Here is a sample code that can be used for that: //You need to connect to the site using CSOM, and then you can use this code to get the flows details //... List list = context.Web.GetList("Lists/YourList"); var flows = list.SyncFlowInstances(); context.Load(flows); ...

Add a new SharePoint 2013 server (must be SharePoint 2013 w/ SP1 ISO, then update to your current patch level), add it to the farm, start Service Instances as appropriate, then remove your old server from the farm. Those are the basic steps to swap out a SharePoint server.

As far as I know you can accomplish #2 with an Intune conditional access policy, but it will affect ALL site collections in the tenant and requires an additional license for each user. I do not think that #1 is possible.

Just to add, if you want to add 'Visitors' in your SharePoint site, then adding them in the O365 group will not work. Adding users to O365 group will give them default 'Member' access, i.e. contributor permission in SharePoint. In this case, you need to click on the 'Advanced Permission settings' from the bottom of the 'Site Permission' popup. It will land ...

this is supported method, you are safe to perform the backup this way. Check this link for more details about the same method. Use SQL Server tools to back up a content database in SharePoint Server

If the windows update does not contains the SharePoint updates then no need to run the Configuration wizard. their is no harm to run it if you want, but keep in mind it will cause an outage on the server where it is running so plan it.

You can define SharePoint build version by executing SQL query on SharePoint config db. SELECT Version, TimeStamp FROM Versions WHERE VersionId = '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000' ORDER BY Id DESC After that you can install SharePoint with necessary CU and restore dbs.

Audit operation, tenant admin account is not responsible for it. as you know it is back-end timer service of SharePoint which is executing ...

I'm sure there are other, more optimal, solutions but this gets the job done: $spDbs = Get-SPDatabase $db = $spDbs[0] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName('Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO') | out-null $s = New-Object ('Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server') $db.ServerName $dbs = $s.Databases #Retrieves the last backup dates - both for FULL and ...

I am not very sure whether it is results by deleting root site collection. You can contact Office 365 support to see if you can get more information there.
