VIDEO – Online WebAPI Generator

I created an online service at https://spjeff.azurewebsites.net/ which generates a MVC WebAPI 2.2 project with the name you enter.   A custom ZIP file is generated server side with your custom name for the Project, Namespaces, Assembly, and sent to the browser for download.   Best practices are already enabled such as:

  • [CORS] decorator
  • [Authorize] decorator
  • Minimal packages and dependency
  • Zero MVC boilerplate
  • Lean mean API ready for dev & prod

From there double click SLN and begin coding.  Enjoy!

PowerShell – Cache AD User Lookup

Given a filter value, this PowerShell function will query Active Directory to find a matching user object and store results in a memory cache.  By default “samAccountName” is used for filter.  Optional field name can be provided to filter by any field such as Manager, Mail, or DN. 

Cheers!

What’s in that patch? Jan 2017

NOTE – PDF format updated to include both SharePoint 2013 and 2016 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/

Replace CE / SE Web Part Content PS1

Managing front end code (HTML/JS) embedded within Script and Content Editor Web Parts can be a hassle.   With multiple instances scattered across ASPX pages, web part galleries, and many sites quickly becomes untenable.

The below PowerShell script gives SharePoint admins a new way to search/replace the internal text of CEWP/SEWP web parts within a target site collection.    Updating a URL reference or DNS name can now be done across potentially hundreds  of WP in just a few minutes.

For example, a team site having 1 CEWP and 1 SEWP with the world “hello” can be quickly replaced with “hola” by running this script.

Cheers!
