Using SharePoint Apps with SAML and FBA Sites in SharePoint 2013

Hopefully by now everyone has heard about the new app model in SharePoint 2013.  There’s a lot of documentation out there about it so I won’t go into exactly what it is.  What you should know is that it’s the preferred model for developing applications going forward.  If you’ve done any development with the new…

Planning the Infrastructure Required for the new App Model in SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 brings with it a brand new application model, which we euphemistically refer to as the “app model” or “cloud app model”.  While it brings a whole new set of opportunities from a development perspective, it also carries with it infrastructure requirements that you need to plan and build to support them.  When I…

Using the Client Object Model with a Claims Based Auth Site in SharePoint 2010

This is a companion posting to my blog about how to use the client OM with a site that is secured with FBA (http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2010/06/03/using-the-client-object-model-with-a-forms-based-auth-site-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx).  First let me just say, this was hard!  Like probably way harder than you would hope for, but there is actually a pretty understandable reason why that’s the case.  With both…

Creating a FAST Search Scope

I can take ZERO credit for this, but I saw a very useful email today where Jan described how to create a FAST search scope using PowerShell.  So I’m just the messenger here but thought it was worth sharing: New-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope -SearchApplication “FAST Query Application” -Name “NewScope” -Description “This is my new scope” -DisplayInAdminUI 1 -ExtendedSearchFilter…

Enabling Multi Tenant Support in SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 adds some new features to support hosting environments, which we generally refer to as multi tenant support.  In the beta release, the core multitenant infrastructure is not turned on by default.  It requires a custom service application to be provisioned, and once that's done you can begin configuring the different pieces of multi…

If you've followed my blog entries by now then you've seen quite a bit of information on throttling for large lists in SharePoint 2010.  One of the things you may find is that you will have scenarios where you want to be able to toggle the enforcement of the throttling on a list by list…

Using the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model - Part 1

SharePoint 2010 introduces a new client side object model (hereafter referred to as the “client OM”) for retrieving data.  It supports a subset of functionality contained in the server side object model, but generally speaking gives you ready access to the data in your SharePoint site using standard object model nomenclature.  Before I actually get…

Using the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model - Part 2

In part 1 of this post, I described some general features of the new client object model (“client OM”) that is included with SharePoint 2010.  I also walked through a pattern for retrieving a collection of all of the lists in a web using that object model.  In this posting, we’ll extend our example further…
