Your SharePoint URL List: An Administrator s Guide

Being in the SharePoint Hosting game for nearly two decades and building and deploying countless SharePoint farms means we ve seen more than our fair share of SharePoint sites.

We ve seen extremely functional SharePoint environments built with only out-of-the-box features. And on the other end of the spectrum, we ve seen large SharePoint farms that are highly customized. Some so unique, that the underlying SharePoint is hardly recognizable. So whenever we assist our customers with an issue or question they’re having, we’re never quite sure what type of environment we’re walking (or logging) in to

Often times, support engineers find themselves in the midst of a highly customized SharePoint environment. To a novice SharePoint engineer, this situation can quickly lead to confusion, consternation and frustration as they navigate the site looking for specific pages.

Where is the Site Settings page? It’s gone.Nowhere to be found. It’s been forever extinguished from the GUI for the sake of cosmetics. Sure the site is pretty now, but how do I add permissions? After all, what good is a pretty site if no one can login and view it? Another typical scenario: I need to retrieve a file that a user just deleted, but I can’t find the recycle bin!

As I’m sure you surmised, the actual settings pages have not been removed. The links to them, however, may no longer be visible. That’s okay, though, because as long as you know the exact URL, you can still get to where you want to go.

To help make life a bit easier for you, we ve compiled the following table of URLs to help you easily navigate to commonly used settings pages. These work in SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, and (for the most part) SharePoint 2007.

Basically, add the URL from the table to the end of the site (or in some cases, the page).

If you work in many different SharePoint farms, keep this list handy. Someday you’ll be thankful you have it.

Administrators on a single SharePoint farm can use the shortcuts as well and make life just a bit easier… and, as a bonus, make you more efficient (and who doesn t want to be more efficient?). Rather than moving the mouse in the GUI and clicking breadcrumbs, sidebars, and pop-up menus, etc… you can get to where you go by simply appending the URL.

For those of us older administrators who remember when the QWERTY keyboard was king of input devices, this is a good thing!

Hi Bruno, sorry if that line confused you. We started as a web hosting company in 1996 for basic FrontPage, ASP and PHP web sites and we were originally called FrontPages Web Hosting Network. We even were the first to host SharePoint when it came about and then SharePoint 2010 many years later.
And before we let you borrow our time machine we need to know exactly what you intend to use it on and also that you won t just go back in time and try to be the only company that has hosted SharePoint for longer than we have.
Thanks for reading!

[ ] SharePoint Admin URLs [ ]

Some site collections I work with error when I run /_layouts/15/sitemanager.aspx
The ULS log shows:
SPSecurityContext: Could not retrieve a valid windows identity for username GALOfer with UPN [email protected] . UPN is required when Kerberos constrained delegation is used. Exception: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): Access is denied
No windows identity for galofer.
But if I just go to the site I am in. no problem.
Any idea what can cause this?

Do you have the generic link to the Site Design Manager, and / or the Look and Feel

/_layouts/chkperm.aspx Check Permissions
/_layouts/aclinv.aspx Grant Permissions
/_layouts/ViewGroupPermissions.aspx view all accesses a group has. requires parameter. ID=[n] where n = the id number of the group, which can be found at:
/_layouts/groups.aspx Show all site groups

Extremely handy article .

This paragraph will help the internet users for
building up new blog or even a weblog from start to end.

For most of these pages such as the Site Content and Structure (SiteManager.aspx) they have not been removed from site settings, it all depends on what site and site collection features are enabled. For example the SiteManager.asox is primarily used for publishing sites. If you enable the SharePoint Server Publishing infrastructure site collection feature it will appear in the site settings page. As you say, you need to know what to look for, and Microsoft do not exactly put out a reference guide for this stuff.
