FIXED – SharePoint Designer login with MFA (Multi Factor Auth)

Quick demonstration of how to login to to SharePoint Designer with MFA  (Multi Factor Auth).

We first establish a web browser session (with MFA push code) and view the “/_api/web” REST endpoint.

We copy the “FedAuth” and “RtFa” authentication cookies to append on all outbound Fiddler HTTP traffic.  From there, SPD will login without any prompt.

Cheers!

VIDEO – Create Modern Communication for Root Site in Tenant

SharePoint Admin Center allows for creating the new Modern Communication site but only with a managed path prefix (/sites/ or /teams).   However, there is a workaround by using the SharePoint Classic Admin Center to modify HTML <SELECT> control and add a new choice for “SITEPAGEPUBLISHING#0” web template.   See video for full demo.  Cheers!

NOTE – PDF format updated to include both SharePoint 2013, 2016, and 2019 notes.

Ever wondered what fixes are inside of a given CU?   Please see attached PDF with full detail. I wanted a new format for easy reading.   Show management and make the business case for why downtime should be taken to apply CUs.  Also posted at http://sharepointupdates.com/
