Using the My Site Organization Browser Web Part inside Non-My Site Application

People have liked the Organization Browser web part so much that they want the web part to be added to their companies main Portal web application. I too recently came across this interesting situation, wherein we were supposed to show the My Site Organization Browser web part inside our publishing site. It was a task that according to me was very small. Just add the Organization Browser web part from the Social Collaboration group (as shown in the figure below) in the webpage and you are sorted.

WebPartAdding

I started working on it. As mentioned, I just added the web part from the Social Collaboration group, and whoa!!!.. I was done. Wait……there was something wrong. The Silverlight web part did not show anything inside it. There was no rendering done. I tried to do a lot of tweaking, but to avail no success : (

I started searching for the solution over the internet, and noticed that I was not the only one facing the problem. Instead there were many with the same problem. Finally I got something that helped me resolve the issue. There are two approaches to resolve the issue. They are:

Solution 1:

The web part is available and functions as expected IF the Portal and My Sites are on the same web application. This implies that the My Site and the Portal should be configured on the same web application.

Solution 2:

Having the Portal and the My Site in the same web application is not a best practice approach. There are also the situations when the environments are entirely different. In such a scenario, when the Organization Browser is added on a page in the Portal web application, the web part is added properly, but it displays blank as shown below:

OrganizationBrowser

In order for the web part to function on the portal web application as it does on the My Sites, following are the steps to be followed:

Create a clientaccesspolicy.xml file. This file will contain the following lines on xml:

clientaccesspolicy

To follow the security best practices, limit this policy to allow access only to your portal web application.

2.Add this xml file inside the root of the virtual directories of both the portal web application and the My Sites web application. The virtual directories for the web sites are located within “C:inetpubwwwrootwssVirtualDirectories”

VirtualDirectory

After you are done adding the file to the root directories of both the applications, open the portal web application and you would see the Organization Browser web part functioning properly.

Chart Web Part SharePoint 2010

One of the new additions to Microsoft’s SharePoint Server 2010 platform is the Chart Web Part (CWP), which allows you to create static and dynamic charts for your site without a line a code. One of the complaints from MOSS 2007 was that users wanted to be able to drop a chart onto their site to create dashboard or display information from Excel documents, or provide metrics to other users in a graphical way.

So now that the Chart Web Part is available, let see how we can use it. To drop a Chart Web Part on your page, go to Site Actions > Edit Page. From there, click “Insert” from the Editing Tools menu. The “Chart Web Part” is available under the “Business Data” category, then you can click on the CWP option and add to a content area.

Chart_Web_Part1

Once added to the page, you will see “Data & Appearance” and “Advance Properties” options.

Chart_Web_Part2

There are a couple of ways you can go once you click the “Data & Appearance” link. You can change the way that the chart will display under “Customize Your Chart” or change the data connection the chart by selecting “Connect Chart to Data” link.

Chart_Web_Part3

The “Customize Your Chart” options will start with selecting the type of chart you’d like to have display your information. There are 2D and 3D chart types you can select and various sub-types of chart types to choose from.

Chart_Web_Part4

Chart_Web_Part8

Chart_Web_Part9

Then click “Finish” and you have a web part on your page, but now we need to decide which data to use now that we’ve make look the way we want. To change the data source, click “Connect Chart to Data” and we’ll review the options available.

Chart_Web_Part10

We can connect to another web part that has information that we need, maybe from another SharePoint list. We can connect directly to a list, the Business Data Catalog that contains your business system’s data or to Excel Services that has a spreadsheet you’d like to dynamically update in one location and pull into a dashboard. For this exercise, I will connect to a List, in this case, I’m going to select my “Help Desk Tickets” list.

Chart_Web_Part11

 

Here is the information that is going to be contained in my chart:

Chart_Web_Part4

I provide some information to enhance how the chart will display the data and by which fields the data could be grouped by.

Chart_Web_Part5

The final result looks like this:

Chart_Web_Part6You can change some of the properties or styles to get the result you’d like, but you can see it’s pretty easy to add a chart (or charts) to your site with a little configuration. We could look at Excel Services or BDC data in the future, but the concept is the same.
