Last year, I wrote a post on how to get started using Information Rights Management in Office 365.  That post covered what you need to get started as well as how to enable IRM at an individual file level.  This post is a follow-up to that one and covers how to configure IRM on a document library. If you haven’t enabled Rights Management in your Office 365 subscription, you’ll need to do that first.  My previous post can walk you through the steps.  You’ll find Rights Management under Service Settings now on the administration site.  Once IRM is configured on you subscription, go to the document library and view the Library Settings.  From there, click the Information Rights Management link.  When you configure IRM for the first time on a library, it will prompt you for a policy name and description.  This message here will be visible to users when viewing the documen...

Solution Dependencies in SharePoint 2010

With MOSS 2007, I often got asked what order do I install these solution packages in.  Oftentimes, it was critical that they get installed in a particular order.  With features, we have had the ability to set dependencies, but we really didn’t have anything like that for solution packages.  Well, I haven’t heard people talking about this new feature yet, but we can in fact set solution dependencies in the manifest.xml file. The way it works is that it checks to see if a dependent solution has already been deployed on your farm (or site collection for sandbox solutions).  However... (more)

Turning on the Developer Dashboard in SharePoint 2010

The developer dashboard is a great new feature that developers can use to aid them in tuning performance on a page.  This new functionality adds information to the bottom of any page in SharePoint that displays performance information and what SQL queries were executed to display the page.  To my knowledge, there is currently no way in the UI to turn this on, so you can do this with a quick x64 console application.  This is soon to become a quite popular code snippet I am sure. SPPerformanceMonitor performanceMonitor = SPFarm.Local.PerformanceMonitor; performanceMonitor.Developer... (more)

SPQuery Error: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException

SharePoint Archiving Journal When I get an error, I like to blog about it.  Especially when the error gives you no useful information whatsoever.  Now, you can get the above error in a variety of ways, but the one I am going to discuss today is when using SPQuery.  I inherited some code that had some CAML queries in it and I could not figure out what the cause was at first.  When I called SPList.GetItems(SPQuery), I would receive something like the following. Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException was unhandled by user code Message="Cannot complete this action.\n\nPlease try again." Sour... (more)
