In Project Server 2013 (EPM 2013) there are two security modes:
- SharePoint Mode (Default)
- Project Server Mode
In Project Server Mode, there are more customization security groups and other functionality that is distinct from SharePoint groups.
to switch between those modes, user SharePoint 2013 PowerShell console and run the below commands:
Set-SPPRojectPermissionMode -Url http://WebApplication/pwa -AdministratorAccount Domain\serviceAccountName -Mode SharePoint
Set-SPPRojectPermissionMode -Url http://WebApplication/pwa -AdministratorAccount Domain\serviceAccountName -Mode ProjectServer
after using Project server mode, the security will look like below image:
While I writing a small console to insert items in SharePoint 2013 task list, I got the follwoing error:
Microsoft SharePoint is not supported in 32-bit process. Please verify that you are running in a 64-bit executable.
An her the screen shot of the exception:
Right click on the project in Solution Explorer and click on Properties
Then go to Build tab and do the following:
- Platform target >> Any CPU
- Clear the check box on “Prefer 32-bit“
If you opened the browser and typed the central admin URL of SharePoint 2013 you may notice that the New Web Application button in the ribbon is disabled even you logged in with System Account.
Run the Internet Explorer as administrator
When you try to upload multiple documents to document library in SharePoint 2013 you may notice that the option “Upload files using Windows Explorer instead” to upload multiple document is not available or hidden.
There is many reasons behind this, one of them is you are opening the document library Internet Explorer 64-bit.
Just open it in Internet Explorer 32-bit.
Suppose we have a document in document library in SharePoint 2013 inside sub folders
Now, using REST API we need to get the Server Relative Url (ServerRelativeUrl) by the document ID.
The REST API url will be: http://<server name>/<sub site>/_api/web/lists/getbytitle(‘Documents’)/items(‘<Document ID>’)/File
In my case it will be : http:// <server name>/En/_api/web/lists/getbytitle(‘Documents’)/items(‘5‘)/File
If you need to remove the SYNC option in SharePoint 2013
Go to Settings under Site Collection level and go to Search section
Under “Offline Client Availability” choose NO
One of new and hidden feature in SharePoint 2013 is that you can specify the maximum upload size per file type 😉
Actually the default maximum upload is 250MB and you can modify it from central administration.
But, you can specify the this size as per file type using power shell cmdlet in MB.
$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication “http://sp2013:2000”
So I told SharePoint to allow uploading AVI files up to 500 MB.
And you can see all available file types in their sizes
