Profile Manager

Use this tool to create a user profile in Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet / Credential Manager , in order to specify the user context to run SPListX export tasks. The stored user profile will be very useful when you are trying to perform the following export tasks in scheduled manner using SPListX:

  • Exporting contents between two different Windows Domain Forest
  • Exporting contents from SharePoint residing in completely disconnected / untrusted Windows Domain
  • Exporting contents using Laptop / PC that is not part of the SharePoint domain
  • Exporting contents using Forms Based Authentication (FBA)

The stored user profile persists for all subsequent logon sessions on the same computer where SPListX is installed. The stored user profiles are visible to other logon sessions on the same computer.

The stored user profile created by using SPListX Profile Manager is restricted to the Windows user profile context used to create the stored user profile. If the Windows User Profile is maintained locally, SPListX stored user profile is accessible only by the same user in the same computer. If the user who creates SPListX stored user profile, has a Roaming user account in the enterprise, the SPListX stored user profile can be accessed by the same user in any computer in the Windows enterprise.

The stored user profile is a generic credential of Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet / Credential Manager and can be used by SPListX application only. The credential information is stored securely in an 256 bit encrypted format in Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet / Credential Manager.
