Site Feed fails with "Something went wrong" for other users than site collection creator


  • Something went wrong
    SharePoint returned the following error: The operation failed because an internal error occurred. Internal type name: Microsoft.Office.Server.Microfeed.MicrofeedException. Internal error code: 61. Contact your system administrator for help in resolving this problem.

    Strange thing is, that this "Site Feed" thing works for the user that created the site collection, but not for other users. I tried adding other users to Site Collection administrator group, but no luck.

    Where do i go from here? what logs should i log for? I've found other posts regarding "Site feed" error, but cause / Error code is different.

  • Hi Frederik Leed,

    I'm having the same issue, it look's like has something to do with the user permissions, what kind of authentication are you using?

    Kind regards,

  • I think i'm just using NTLM.  Funny thing is that it's working for the user that created the site, but not for anyone else, regardless of permission level.

    Have you had any luck resolving the issue?

  • The issue was the User Profile Service Application, had not been granted full control for the account that was running the service (i.e. service apps account).

    check this post hope so you will get it :)

  • Hi FrederikLeed,

    I have also faced the same issue of Microfeed Exception code 61 , and to overcome this issue
    the user must have a user profile and a My Site in SharePoint Server 2013.

    Since Microblog features, feeds, and the Distributed Cache depends upon both the My Site Content Databases and site content databases. 
    Perhaps you might not have created My Site for the web application, Create My Site of the required web application.

    Hope this helps you and also share your result on this.
