SharePoint online 2013 event receiver error

I am currently working on a SharePoint online project. My code generates 6 documents in 6 different document libraries along with other metadata. When I save data to a List, the event receiver fires and creates all the 6 documents. But sometimes it stops creating
the 6 documents and left with 1 or 2 documents. Sometimes documents has been created but without any metadata.
The same code is working fine in my on-premises environment, but it sometimes breaks in the Office 365 environment. I also created a log list to track the issue as we cannot debug in Office 365. In the log list I found a error message saying "Thread was
being aborted." Below is my code. please help it is happening only in Office 365 environment.

  • SharePoint 2013 event receiver error

    I am currently working on a SharePoint online project. I am facing a strange issue. My code generates 6 documents
    in 6 different document libraries along with other metadata. When I save data to a List, the event receiver fires and creates all the 6 documents. But sometimes it stops creating the 6 documents and left with 1 or 2 documents. Sometimes documents has been
    created but without any metadata. The same code is working fine in my on-premises environment, but it sometimes breaks in the Office 365 environment. I also created a log list to track the issue as we cannot debug in Office 365. In the log list I found a error
    message saying "Thread was being aborted." Below is my code. please help it is happening only in Office 365 environment.

  • SharePoint Online 2013 Workflows for one List stopped working after 07/08/2014

    Our client host application in Office 365 SharePoint Online 2013, and we just found that all workflows for one list stopped working after 7, Aug 2014. It kept displaying pop-up message "Something went wrong. To try again, reload the page and then start
    the workflow." when manually start a workflow for this List.
    Tested workflow for other list, there's no problem.
    Could anyone can help on this issue?

  • Visio Web Access Refresh in SharePoint Online 2013

    I'm trying to pull in SharePoint Online 2013 List data into a Visio Pro 2013 diagram and then serve the diagram into a SharePoint Online Page under a Visio Data Access Web Part.
    I have no working knowledge of Visio, but made a data connection and presented SPO list data on my diagram. But the data appears to be static when deployed to the Visio Access Web Part - even when I manually refesh.   I think, I'm not correctly
    adding list fields to my document. 
    I've set  refresh rates on both the document and the web part, but neither help.
    For a demo I want to show a single list field - nothing fancy.
    Possible to have dynamic data from an SPO List hosted in SPO?
    Any way to filter which row is sent from through a URL Query string?
    How?

    Hi ,
    Per the following article, the data sources will be disconnected and can't be refreshed after the Visio is published to SharePoint.
    "You can publish PivotDiagrams or Timeline diagrams to SharePoint, but they are disconnected from the data sources and can’t be refreshed."
    http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/visio-help/save-diagrams-to-sharepoint-HA102749359.aspx
    And also I would suggest you post in Office365 SharePoint online forum for a better assistance regarding this issue through the following link.

  • What are the possibilities and limitation of using Out of the box content search webpart on SharePoint Online 2013/O365 ?

    Hi All,
    We are migrating from on-premise SharPoint 2010 to SharePoint online 2013.
    I have few questions below: 
    What are the possibilities and limitations of using Out of the box content search webpart?
    Also, how the cross site publishing will work in SharePoint online something with managed navigations and product catalog apporach? if it is not supported, then what are the alternatives to acheive the same?
    Appriciate any commnets/clarifications.Thanks in advance.
    Thanks,
    Dhananjay.

    Here are the possibilities of Content search webparts

    Compare the strengths and limitations of the Web Parts
    It’s important that you understand the strengths and limitations of the two Web Parts because if you choose the wrong one, your site could run into performance problems. You can use both Web Parts to show content that is based on a query. In a simplified
    world, here’s how you can decide between the two:
    Use the CQWP when you have a limited amount of content, your query is simple, and you don’t expect your content to grow much in the future.
    Use the CSWP in all other scenarios when you want to show content that is based on a query.
    The table below gives a comparison of the two Web Parts:
    Web Part behavior
    Content Query Web Part
    Content Search Web Part
    Query configuration
    Easy
    You’ll need to know about certain search features such as
    managed properties.
    Query across large amounts of content
    Limited
    Yes
    Handle complex queries
    Limited
    Yes
    Scale to handle future content growth
    Limited
    Yes
    Display content from other site collections
    No
    Yes (see
    section below)
    Design of query results can be customized
    Yes, by using XSLT.
    Yes, by using HTML.
    Maintenance cost in a complex site architecture
    High
    Small (see
    section below)
    Narrow down the query results that are displayed in the Web Part
    No
    Yes, in combination with the
    Refinement Web Part.
    It was not there previously but then it was added to Office 365

  • Sharepoint 2013, event receiver to rename files not working

    I coded an event receiver (ItemAdding) that renames for example a .txt file to a .text file (it does not matter the extensions, it is just an example). In my code what I do is to an SPFile.MoveTo operation. It works fine in SP2010 but when I execute
    the same code in SP 2013, when the operation is done using IE I get the text "Sorry, something went wrong" and then "File Not Found".
    In the logs this is what I see:
    12/23/2013 15:48:49.16  w3wp.exe (0x17B0)                        0x0AC8 SharePoint Foundation        
     General                        ai1wu Medium   System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified.
    (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002), StackTrace:    at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb.GetFileOrFolderProperties(String strUrl, ListDocsFlags listDocsFlags, Boolean throwException, SPBasePermissions& permMask)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFile.PropertiesCore(Boolean
    throwException)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFile.get_Length()     at Microsoft.Office.RecordsManagement.PolicyFeatures.ApplicationPages.UploadPage.OnSubmit(Object o, EventArgs e)     at Microsoft.Office.RecordsManagement.PolicyFeatures.ApplicationPages.UploadExPage.OnSubmit(Object
    o, EventArgs e)     at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)     at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessReque... f72b639c-77b1-5045-c3a2-b23f24ae71c0
    It's clear that the Sharepoint upload code tries to do things with the original name and it does not realize that it was renamed.
    Can I do something from my event receiver code like using the AfterProperties to bypass this error?
    Thanks

    Hi Dennis,
    The issue still persists. Here is the code:
            public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)
                SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate()
                    try
                        OutputDebugStringA("Inside ItemAdded");
                        string szHttpUrl = properties.WebUrl + "/" + properties.AfterUrl;
                        SPWeb openedWeb = properties.Web.Site.OpenWeb(properties.Web.ID);
                        SPFile spf = openedWeb.GetFile(szHttpUrl);
                        EventFiringEnabled = false;
                        string szUrl = properties.AfterUrl;
                        szUrl = szUrl + ".renamed";
                        string szNewFileName;
                        if (szUrl.LastIndexOf('\\') != -1) szNewFileName = szUrl.Substring(szUrl.LastIndexOf('\\') + 1);
                        else if (szUrl.LastIndexOf('/') != -1) szNewFileName = szUrl.Substring(szUrl.LastIndexOf('/') + 1);
                        else szNewFileName = szUrl;
                        if (properties.ListItem != null)
                            properties.ListItem["Title"] = szNewFileName;
                            properties.ListItem.Update();
                        spf.MoveTo(szUrl);
                        EventFiringEnabled = true;
                        base.ItemAdded(properties);
                        OutputDebugStringA("Renaming to " + szUrl);
                    catch (System.Exception exception)
                        OutputDebugStringA("ItemAdded ERROR: " + exception.ToString());

  • Microsoft Sharepoint Designer 2013 encountered an error during setup

    I'm trying to install SharePoint Designer 2013 on my system, but I keep getting this error with no other detail.  Looking into the SetupExe log file that the event viewer pointed to didn't really identify anything that would point me
    to the culprit (or at least nothing I could decipher).  I am running Windows 7 (64 bit) and Office 2010 (32 bit).  Anyone run into this before?

    I am also trying to install SP Designer 2013 (32-bit) on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit OS with MS Office 2010 32-bit and getting the same error about 30% into the install.  I have attempted to uninstall other 3rd party programs and apps for example Citrix
    and Skype and still no success.  I tried booting up in safe mode and get the same error right at the onset of the install.  
    Update:  Tried a "clean boot"  install and that also failed.

  • SharePoint Online workflows show server error when link is clicked. Cannot terminate them.

    This is for SharePoint Online. I have a number of workflows on a list that are in a 'suspended' state when I navigate to the workflows page for the item. When I click the link to view the workflow, I get a server error.  I need to terminate these workflows.

    Hi,
    Based on your description, you want to terminate these workflows in SharePoint online.
    You can terminate these workflows by the CSOM implementation through passing the ID of the list and list item.
    You can refer to the code snippets below.
    // connect to the workflow services via a CSOM client context
    var clientContext = new ClientContext(siteCollectionUrl);
    var workflowServicesManager = new WorkflowServicesManager(clientContext, clientContext.Web);
    // connect to the instance service
    var workflowInstanceService = workflowServicesManager.GetWorkflowInstanceService();
    // get all instances
    var workflowInstances = workflowInstanceService.EnumerateInstancesForListItem(listId, listItemId);
    clientContext.Load(workflowInstances);
    clientContext.ExecuteQuery();
    foreach (var instance in workflowInstances)
    // is this what we are looking for?
    // if so, suspend it
    workflowInstanceService.SuspendWorkflow(instance);
    // or you can terminate it
    workflowInstanceService.TerminateWorkflow(instance);
    There is a similar case:

  • How to convert word documents to html page in sharepoint online 2013

    Hi,
    I am new SharePoint and still learning it.
    I have been tasked to do the following on office 365 E3 SharePoint 2013 Online edition.
    1) I have to create a Web page in asp.net
    2) This page needs to show document from a given SharePoint folder and bind them in a grid or dropdown on the asp .net web page
    3) On selecting the document from the drop down or gird (on asp .net webpage), I need to show the SharePoint word document as HTML on the webpage (something like word to html) Note: These SharePoint word document may contain Images, bullets, tables etc. 
    What I have been able to do till now
    1) I have been able to connect to SharePoint from ASP .net application.
    2) I have been able to retrieve document from a specific SharePoint folder.
    3) Read the document from SharePoint folder and bind them to a drop down on the asp .net page.
    What is missing?
    I am not aware about any API that SharePoint Online provides to convert Word document to HTML. Any code sample or reference on how to will be much appreciated. 
    I am not also not sure what is the best way of achieving the functionality this?
    Thanks 
    Krishna

    If this was SharePoint server then it would be easy however in O365 You need to create a app which will use the word automation service and below is  powershell which you can use for the conversion:-
    # This script will convert Docx to PDF using word automation and similarly it can be used to convert to HTML
    $wordFile="http://contoso/kick.docx"
    $pdfFile="http://contoso/kick.pdf"
    $wasp = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | where { $_.TypeName -eq "Word Automation Services Proxy" }
    $site = Get-SPSite "http://contoso"
    $ConvertJob = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Word.Server.Conversions.SyncConverter($wasp)
    $ConvertJob.UserToken = $site.UserToken
    $ConvertJob.Settings.UpdateFields = $false
    $ConvertJob.Settings.OutputFormat = "PDF"
    $ConvertJob.Convert($wordFile, $pdfFile)

  • Display xls-files in browser (Sharepoint online 2013)

    I've seen this question answered with "xls is not supported" several times, but according to
    this page viewing should now be supported:
    Excel 97- Excel 2003 Workbook (.xls) or Excel 97- Excel 2003 Template (.xlt)
    If a workbook is in .xls or .xlt format, you can typically view but not edit a workbook in a browser window. When the file is edited, it is saved in .xlsx or .xltx format.
    I can't get it to work though, has anyone of you been able to open a xls-file in the Excel web app?

    Hi  ,
    According to your description, I  tested in my SharePoint Online and get the same result.
    If you hover over drop down, if you don't see view in browser then the file can't be opened in browser. So .xls file doesn't seem to be supported.
    I recommend that you open the file in Excel 2010 or Microsoft Excel 2013, and then save the file as one of the supported formats. The following table shows the recommended file formats for the Excel 2013
    Web App.
    Product
    File format
    Microsoft Excel 2013 Web App
    Excel Workbook (*.xlsx) Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook (.xlsm)
