This handler retrieves the contents of a list from the configured Sharepoint site and returns a JSON representation of the data.
This handler makes a SOAP call (using Savon) to the SharePoint Web Services to get the contents of a list from a specific SharePoint site. As long as the user has sufficient privileges, the first call to SharePoint returns a hash containing all of the Site lists and their details. The handler then uses that list to get the correct list id that corresponds with the list title given during input and then makes another SOAP call to get the the list contents which are returned in a hash. The handler then takes that response, cleans up the hash, and then converts it to a JSON table to allow for easy access of the information. Any errors that occur during this process will be caught and re-raised by the handler. Authentication is done through SSL, so the SharePoint site being accessed needs to be setup to allow SSL connections.
- Make sure the SharePoint Web Services database is turned on.
How to Obtain the Homepage URL Info Value
To find the homepage url, all you have to do is look at the URL of any page on the SharePoint site. The url that should be inputted should contain both the base url (the top-most site in the collection) and the sub-site that you are on. For example, given the following URL: https://sharepoint.company.com/devel...ages/Home.aspx The base site is "sharepoint.company.com", the sub-site is "development" and the 'HomePage URL' task info values should be set to: https://sharepoint.company.com/development
