Sharepoint Configuration

Host Sections

For each SharePoint server that shall be accessed by Stages a cms-host section must be defined under the cms section in Config.xml. You have to provide values for the attribute ident and name.

  • As ident you have to specify either the same value as for host name or another unique identifier string. CMS profiles will later reference this ident. So you should not change it or remove it unintentionally when you already created CMS profiles for this host.
  • The name must be the base URL for all SharePoint sites. It corresponds to SharePoint's Public URL and not any internal URLs. Please note that the URL must contain the protocol, the server's host name (not its IP address), optionally a port number, and the path to the SharePoint site collection. Examples: http: myhost/sites, http://myhost/ (in case of a top-level site), https://myhost:10443/websites
  • The displayName is optional. With this attribute you can influence the SharePoint server name that is displayed in Stages CMS profiles.
