Sharepoint 2010 user AD Permissions not updating

Posted April 23, 2012 By Kevin Bennett

Needed to add a new user “immediately” to have access to a site. No it was needed immediately, but lack of planning on someone’s part made it appear to be immediate. So I added to the AD group and went home.

…. 15 minutes later I get a call that they still can’t access the site, so double checked that I put the user in the correct AD group. Well I did but when I went to permissions for the site and tested the user permission it didn’t show up.

So a quick search revealed that when using Claims based Authentication there is a default property setting called token-timeout and it is set for 1440 minutes (24 hours)

To View and change this do the following:

stsadm -o getproperty -propertyname token-timeout

This will get your default setting

stsadm -o setproperty -propertyname token-timeout -propertyvalue

I ran this on my app server

XSL Help

Posted April 18, 2012 By Kevin Bennett

Found this the other day when trying to create some XSL Templates. Thought I might need it in the future so I am posting it here.

To see what values are being passed to the Webpart in an XSL template


<xsl:for-each select=”@*”>
     P:<xsl:value-of select=”name()” />
