Export/Import WebParts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am under SCCM Dashboard > Site Action > Site Settings > Web parts...

    I found from the Edit Page > Edit the export to .webpart in folder /download  ActiveAlerts_xml.webpart

    Then I am doing the import

    http://community.bamboosolutions.com/blogs/sharepoint_blank/archive/2009/01/08/how-to-export-amp-import-web-parts-in-sharepoint.aspx

    I am getting a message...

    Please specify which data set to display in this Dashboard Viewer Web Part by clicking on Edit, on the Web part title bar. In the Edit menu, click Modify Shared Web Part. In the Dashboard Viewer Web Part properties pane, click Select data set configuration. In the drop-down list, select the data set to display in this Web part, and then click OK.

    If I try to import the same webpart file on the original page it works fine...

    I verified that the:

    Open the web page > Site Action > Edit Page > Modified Shared Web Part

    Select dataset configuration

    Advanced

    Export Mode:  Export All Data

    Import Error Message: Cannot Import this webpart

     

    What should be the size of the webpart file exported? All of them are 2KB and contains only basic information I do not see link to the datasets, the graph type...

    <webParts>
     <webPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v3">
      <metaData>

        <property name="ChromeState" type="chromestate">Normal</property>
       </properties>
      </data>
     </webPart>
    </webParts>

    Does this mean I have to recreate all datasets and webparts graphs... for each individual sites even they contains the exact same queries and exact same pies, gauge...

    Thanks,

    Dom

  • I Export webpart from Site Actions > Site Settings > web parts ... then import into webpart page witout any problem.

    I suggest you read this thread:

  • It is what I did but apparenlty this does not work all the times. There are conditions to meet for the two pages to be able to work.

    I did with several pages, several sites and none works so far. I think one main condition during the save, the export is blocking the import to work properly. If you see the xml attached earlier I don't see any trace of the dataset, etc... for this webpart.

    When doing export webpart should something else exported at the same time?

    How should be the webpart xml content?

    I check the thread

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointdevelopment/thread/8fe8e85c-f51c-4480-854c-10e9a146d162

    but I don't have any error during the import it is just importing an empty file... it is why I am thinking that the .webpart file exported is incomplete. The frame (webpart name is populated) but the dataset is empty and even does not seem to exist!!

    Should it be imported by itself?

    I don't use any code as the export/import is done through the UI.

    I saw also that the thread is unresolved with a question in the last post "what did I miss?"... same as me

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

     

    According to your description, in my limited experience, the issue will be to get the web part to play well with the other features in SharePoint, like editing in datasheets, using excel to import and  export,  and so on. That the web service is not Microsoft web Services Extensions 2 per se threw me off originally, but now that I know the problem is in the webservices section of the web.config file, I will be taking a closer look at this article: http://www.networksteve.com/enterprise/topic.php/WSE_is_causing_the_Excel_cannot_connect_to_the_SharePoint_List_e/?TopicId=2766&Posts=0

    Which points to using “remove type” in a “location path” in the web.config file. I’ll be experimenting with how to implement that in a way that works for our issue.

     

    Best Regards
    David Hu

  • Thanks David I will review the web.config file.

    My main issue for now is between various pages inside the same web site in Sharepoint/System Center Configuration Manager-Dashboard.

    the two URLs are http://sopscomdb1:12345/default.aspx and http://sopscomdb1:12345/Dashboards/PingStatus/default.aspx

    Thanks again,

    Dom
