It is not because I am not blogging that I am not busy 🙂
In the last months I have published several scripts to the Microsoft Technet gallery, that I want to summarize in this post:
This powershell script allows for enumeration through a SharePoint 2010 web application to identify all sites, document libraries, lists, folders and items for which the permission inheritance has been broken.
This script should be executed using a SharePoint 2010 Management Shell on one of the SharePoint servers in the farm with an account allowed to access all content.
this PowerShell script allows for resetting broken inheritance within a site collection. It will run through all subsites, lists, document libraries, folders and individual items, check if permission inheritance is broken and reset the inheritance.
This PowerShell script allows you to populate the PictureUrl property of the User Profiles in SharePoint 2010 based on a provided CSV file, containing the username and the picture URL.
This script will generate a tab delimited text file with all the documents present is in the given web application in SharePoint 2010. It will list the documents, the size of the document, the number of versions, the sie of the versions and the total size. This report will enable you to identify large files throughout an entire web application and identify those files that have many versions and are basically eating up all your storage.
This script locates all pages in an entire web application that uses connected web parts. the script runs through all the aspx pages in all document libraries of all sites in every site collection and checks if there are web part connections defined. If this is the case it will list the page and the provider and consumer web part title.
The script can easily be adapted to find specific web parts in an entire web application
This Powershell script allows you to synchronize an Active Directory custom attribute with the SharePoint 2010 user profile service application PictureUrl property. Usefull for companies that store picture url information in a custom attribute and want to replicate that information into SharePoint 2010. Normally this should be feasible by customizing the ForeFront Identity Manager used by the SharePoint 2010 User Profile Synchronization service, but this is not supported. The script can be easily customized to use a different extension attribute in Active Directory
Use this script in combination with a scheduled task on one of the SharePoint servers in the farm.
