networking – SharePoint – Publish internet site with reverse proxy, NTLM Authentication , and FBA

I need to publish a SharePoint internet web site by implementing the three-tier network zoning, it will be determined as follows:

1- Reverse Proxy Server resides in Internet DMZ Zone.

2- All SharePoint Servers (Application & WFE) will reside in the internnal network.

3- Database servers (clustered) will reside in another protected zone, and connections are made through a specific port (as mentioned in the securirty hardeding plan by Microsoft)

My question: is it possible to get my internet web site work normally with NTLM authentication and FBA after exposing the WFE to the internet via Reverse Proxy?, knowing that my web application is configured to use Claims Based Authentication (NTLM + FBA). or is there a specific configuration that needs to be applied on the Reverse Proxy Server to get the web site work properly using NTLM and FBA?

CMIS upload large file to SharePoint

I have problem with integration BPM (Business Automation Workflow) with SharePoint 2013. I created configuration on base this instruction
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SS8JB4/com.ibm.wbpm.wle.editor.doc/topics/sharepointaccess.html
I have problem with uploading a document file bigger than 50 MB from BPM to SharePoint List. The upload is using CMIS.
I don’t know where to look for the configuration parameter for this file size limit for upload.

what I already did is:

  • extend the max file upload on CA for this web application,
  • set on CA for this web application ‘web page security Validation’ on Never (in this link there is a screen how to set it)
  • extend timeout on IIS

After changing those configuration settings to extend the upload file settings I checked and I am able to upload a bigger file than 50 MB via SharePoint UI and CSOM. It seems the problem is when the upload is done via CMIS

Any ideas ?
Thank for any help 🙂

What is the recommended way to create SharePoint Internet site in SP 2019?

Our requirement is to have an internet public CMS website for our organization with some information such as news(will be updated by our team), contact us(where anyone can submit anonymously).

So, We are implementing a new SP 2019 on-prem public internet site and our SP 2019 server arch is 1 App, 1 FE, and 1 SQL. The external team that is implementing SP, they are creating 2 web applications SPWebAPP1 and SPWebAPP2. They are claiming that they create SPWebAPP2 web application to have a custom master page design and use AJAX to fetch list information from SPWebAPP1, so that site loading will be fast. Is that advisable to have a separate web application for API? But we wanted to have a single web app as SPWebApp1 by extending it to the Internet zone without using SPWebApp2 since we don’t have any other application integration. What is recommendable?

To keep my question simple, What is Microsoft recommended way to create an internet SharePoint 2019 site with some custom master page design?

sharepoint server – unable to upload Password protected files(Word, Excel) to the SP2013 Doc lib

Have you tried removing the password protection, upload file, then reinstate password protection?

Although with Sharepoint, assuming it’s managed correctly(!), you can remove the need for password protection on individual files. Instead the protection is managed through the use of Sharepoint Groups.

If only one user is allowed access to a group of files. Make a new document library and customise the permissions for that document library. This will involve ‘breaking the inheritance’ for that document library; you can then customise it – i.e. remove the standard user groups that can normally access other document libraries on that site.

enterprise search – What is the KQL syntax to filter by owstaxId managed properties in SharePoint 2010?

My understanding of how to use KQL to query against the automatically created managed properties which have the form of owstaxIdProperty, that is that to query for all items with a given term, the syntax is, based on this post by Mikael Svenson:

owstaxIdProperty:"GP0|#c8a43f13-5ea1-45f2-b46d-3a1986a1cbd7"

However, when I try to enter a similar query through the query to the results.aspx page by entering a url similar to (with the # encoded as %23):

/Search/Pages/results.aspx?k=owsTaxIdProperty:"GP0|%23c8a43f13-5ea1-45f2-b46d-3a1986a1cbd7"

I obtain no results and a message as in the image below, which suggests to me that the query is getting through

enter image description here

If I write the query just as Property:TermLabel, the query works and the expected results are returned but I think this could be inaccurate if you have duplicated term labels, as I do

This question is similar but I suspect that the poster is using SharePoint 2013, rather than 2010

Another possibility is that I should be using the WssId instead of the termGuid, as is suggested in an MSDN post on “Querying on Managed Metadata Field Values in SharePoint Server 2010 (ECM)” (sorry, I can’t post more than two links)

Has anyone had success with similar queries using SharePoint 2010?

Need help understanding ‘Modified’ column in Sharepoint List

My ‘Modified’ and ‘Modified By’ columns show that I’m updating all the items in the list almost every second. I’m not doing any actual changes to the items. My guess is that this is because of the Flows that I have connected to them.

It seems like it’s creating a cycle. I have several flows that are triggered by ‘When an item is created or modified’, but it seems like the triggering of the flows themselves are actually creating the modification.

This is just my guess. Can someone explain this better?

I just really don’t understand why it keeps saying that I modified all the items when I haven’t actually edited them.
