What will happen to my trainings when a report is migrated to another server?
All saved SharePoint connections will be available and fully functional in the new server as well. In this case, please double check whether the SharePoint site is available from that server.
Can I use old templates which were created by older versions of the SharePoint connections in new versions of Spotfire?
Yes you can, the forward compatibility is ensured. You can use all your previously created connections with the new versions of Spotfire.
Can I modify my SharePoint connection without saving the report?
The modifications made in the SharePoint connection will only be saved when the report is saved.
Can I refresh SharePoint based data tables?
No. Currently there are two options available:
  • Click on 'Replace datatable' from 'File' menu and opens SharePoint file.
  • Close and reopen the specified template.
What will happen when the report is moved to another server area?
Migrating between areas does not affect the created SharePoint connections, because these are stored (embedded) in the report.
Can IX SharePoint Connector connect to SharePoint in the cloud?
Yes. The IX SharePoint Connector can connect to MS SharePoint Online.
Can I use the IX SharePoint Connector for Automation Services?
Yes. It is possible if the credentials are stored in the dxp. (Remembered basic or Form-based authentication)
What can I do if the SharePoint address is valid but SharePoint Connector gives an error messagesaying „You can not connect to SharePoint site”?
SharePoint address must contain only the address of the selected SharePoint site or its subsite. The following items are not allowed in the SharePoint address: „/” at the end of the address; complete address with .asmx potfix
