  • SharePoint: How to display simple external page, a folder or a web application integrated in SharePoint

    Displaying an external is quite often required by the users. To do this, here is a small procedure to perform this operation:

    In the page you want to display the embedded page, click on “Edit Page” if you have the update permission for this page. Add a web part and select Content Editor.


    After this, you will have to indicate the corresponding page.


    For example, fill the information with The page is now visible as an embedded page.


    You can do the same and display a Shared Folder. Logon user permissions will still be applied.

  • SharePoint Health Analyzer: “Built-in accounts are used as application pool or service identities” but I don’t find the service in the services list. What can I do?

    If your service account is not in the services list (i.e. SPTraceV4), you will not be able to manage the service through the central administration user interface. As you should use SharePoint to perform this operation, you will have to use PowerShell. You can use the following script:

    $servicename = "SPTraceV4"
    $managedaccountname = "DOMAIN\sp_admin"
    $farm = Get-SPFarm
    $SPTimerv4 = $farm.Services | Where {$_.Name -eq $servicename}
    $SPTimerV4NewAccount = Get-SPManagedAccount $managedaccountname
    $SPTimerv4.ProcessIdentity.CurrentIdentityType = "SpecificUser"
    $SPTimerv4.ProcessIdentity.ManagedAccount = $SPTimerv4NewAccount
    As you can see, you will have to use a managed account. If your account is not yet registered as a managed account, you will have to register it before performing this operation.

  • SharePoint: How to activate anonymous access

    The following screenshots are based on SharePoint 2010 but the way to do the operation is the same with SharePoint 2007.

    SharePoint can be used for Public Internet facing web sites. Internet web sites are mostly available for anonymous users. By default, SharePoint ask for credentials, which is not the expected behavior for these Internet sites.

    SharePoint can be easily opened to anonymous users. Just follow these steps:

    Enable anonymous access for the web application

    As authentication settings are active at web application level, you have to go to the Central Administration > Application Management


    Select the Web Application you want to use and click on Authentication Providers


    The default authentication provider is Windows. Click on default and you will be able to manage some settings for this provider.


    One of them is Anonymous access. Check the corresponding check box and now you can set some permissions for anonymous users.


    Global permissions for anonymous users

    Back to the Web applications list. Click on Anonymous Policy.


    You can now set global permissions for anonymous users.


    Allow anonymous users to access your site

    Go to your public web site.

    Depending on your architecture, login prompt is display or not. When you are authenticated with an account that has access to site settings, click on Site Permissions.


    Because you have activated the anonymous access at Web application level, you have a button in the ribbon named Anonymous access.


    Select the permissions for the anonymous access


    That’s all! Now anonymous users can access your SharePoint site! That’s the first step in implementing Web Content Management using SharePoint.
