Setting Object Properties

You can use ControlPoint to set properties for site collections, sites, and lists.

In a multi-farm environment, properties can be set across multiple farms; the user interface for the home farm is always used.  Therefore, if your multi-farm installation includes different SharePoint versions (for example, both 2010 and 2016) or variations (for example, ControlPoint Standard  and ControlPoint Online), which necessitates differences in the user interface, some options may be missing—or not valid—for the remote farm.  For example, in a SharePoint 2010 farm you have the option of performing a Visual Upgrade, a setting that is not available in—and therefore would be skipped for— a SharePoint 2016 farm.  Note that if a SharePoint 2016 farm were your home farm, the option to perform a Visual Upgrade would not be available.

 

Setting Site Collection Properties

Set Site Collection Properties is a ControlPoint action that lets you set the following properties for one or more site collections within a SharePoint farm:

·Site Collection Administrators

·Site Collection Quota

·Site Collection Audit Settings

·SharePoint Designer Settings

·Audit Log Trimming

This feature is not available at the farm (tenant) scope.

To set site collection properties:

1Select the site collection(s) for which you want to set properties.

2Choose Configuration > Set Site Collection Properties.

3In the Parameters section, specify each property you want to set as you would if you were performing Site Collection Administration via SharePoint Site Settings.

EXCEPTION:  Set Site Collection Audit Settings as you would if you were using the ControlPoint Manage Audit Settings action.

Set Site Collection Properties ONLINE

NOTE:  Changes to SharePoint Designer Settings will impact only users who are not Site Collection Administrators.  

Now you can:

·run the operation immediately (by clicking the [Run Now] button)

OR

·complete the Enforce Policy section and schedule the operation to run at a later time.

OR

·save the operation as XML Instructions that can be run at a later time.

If you chose the Run Now, option, after the operation has been processed:
