Cloud Hybrid Search in SharePoint 2013

I just came back from my Spanish days in Mallorca and looking through my unread feed I found an interesting post by Stefan Goßner about Cloud Hybrid Search in SharePoint 2013. (Ok, I also noticed that SharePoint Server 2016 Preview is available but I already read a tons on post about that and I do not have something to add about that :)). This is a new feature brought by SharePoint Server 2013 August 2015 Cumulative Update that makes it possible to search from Office 365 (or from SharePoint Server) both on-premises and on-line content.

You may already have read about something similar for SharePoint Server 2016 as the Cloud Search Service Application. Yes, it is :) read more…

I’ll be speaking at #SPSFlorence

I’ll be speaking at #SPSFlorence

On Saturday June 20th, 2015 I’ll be speaking at SPSFlorence. This is the first SharePoint Saturday’s event in Florence and I’m honored to be part of the show. As far as I know SPSFlorence will be the first SharePoint related event in Italy with such an international target, most of the speakers come from all over Europe and all sessions will be held in English.

I will speak about Display Templates from the very basics to how to customize search results using search APIs. I will co-present with my fellows Mattia and Claudio, SharePoint MVP and one of the best developer I ever met. You can take a look to the agenda and event’s location on SPSEvents.org.

List all publishing pages and their associated page layout

I’ve often been asked to get almost any kind of report about SharePoint’s content. This time the customer asked me to get the list of all publishing pages and their page layout in a site collection. This is quite an easy task, of course using PowerShell! It’s just a matter of looping through all SPWebs in the site collections, get the page library content and print some item properties in a text file. Let’s see how to do that.

Since this is just a quick tip take a look to the comments in the script, they should be self explaining :)

Azure RMS Document Tracking

Azure RMS Document Tracking

As part of its continue investments in security Microsoft recently released the public preview (at the moment of this writing) of a new feature of the Azure Rights Management called Document Tracking.

In a few words sharing a document you can now “monitor the use, and thus abuse, of each of these documents shared using a variety of views. If the senders does not like what they see, they can (now) revoke access to the document regardless of where it is stored” (taken from http://blogs.technet.com/b/rms/archive/2015/05/04/doctracking.aspx).
