I am using handlebars and ran into an issue with trying to group by a category but I was able to fix that by using underscorejs.  Now my issue is using my object categorized into arrays into my template.  Here's an image of what I see in the developer tools:
Object with two arrays
As you can see, it's an object with two arrays.  I got the data to show by doing the following but as you will see, it's not very efficient because there are actually have 6 categories and not just two.
<!-- Handlebar Js Template Starts Here -->
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script id="projectMilestone-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template">

		<td>Planned Date</td>
		<td>Revised Date</td>

My organization did a vulnerability scan one of our websites (SharePoint 2013) which is behind AD authentication... the report gives warnings about about "cross-site scripting" and "clickjacking" vulnerabilities.

My question is, if the site is behind AD authentication these are not actually vulnerabilities, are they?
I am using REST API with SharePoint 2013 and I want to know if the following url endpoint is legal or if there is a better way?
 //'My_Project_Modules')/items?$select=DIR,Station,Title,Building_x0020_Number&$filter=Project_x0020_Number eq '402-CSI-001'     //<---  Works when I paste it in the browser
 var projNum = '402-CSI-001';
var endPointUrl = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbyTitle('My_Project_Modules')/items?$select=DIR,Station,Title,Building_x0020_Number&$filter=Project_x0020_Number eq "+projNum;  //<---  Not valid when I run it in my code

Is there a way without code, to have two or three calendars in a SharePoint subsite automatically feed their data to a Calendar that resides on a site above them?
I have a List in SharePoint 2013. It acts as a Contact List where users can enter their information. The first column is titled "Name" and is populated from the GAL. Two questions:

1) is there a way to add a user who is not in the GAL (Global Address List)

2) What happens to an entry when that person is taken from the GAL (i.e. quits or is terminated)?

Thanks in advance
Which are the best training sites for IT?

Most engaging so far and helpful for certification was Testout which does not have all content. But still all training gets less engaging.

I have seen Stormwind which is less engaging and am looking for company like Stormwind which has all training module and more engaging it look go on preview but I have not heard much good feedback on internet and it is a big investment

    oWebsite = clientContext.get_web();
    oList = oWebsite.get_lists().getByTitle(listName);
    url = clientContext.get_url()+"/" + listName + "/"+ parentFolder;
    //check folder if doesn't exist will error if not existing
    folder = clientContext.get_web().getFolderByServerRelativeUrl(url);
    //change context to  url of clientid
           oWebsite1 = clientContext.get_web(url);
    itemCreateInfo = new SP.ListItemCreationInformation();

I want to create different Document libraries under "DOCUMENTS" in left side pane in SharePoint 2013. To be clear, I do not want folders to appear on right side pane when I click on documents but want them to appear underneath the "DOCUMENT" with 1 tab spacing. How do I do this?

I have created a List in SharePoint 2013 for end users to visit and input their contact information.

How can I set this List up so each individual end user can only see his or her own entry and no one else's? Select managers will still need to be able to see all entries. SharePoint Designer is not an option. Thank you in advance for any support with this.

Hi EE,

When I am trying to log onto a subdomain of an intranet site, I am being denied access. I have granted myself complete access over the primary domain via the SharePoint Central Administration tool and have checked to see whether the subdomain 'pwa' is a managed path of the primary domain which it is, refer to the screenshot.

How do I troubleshoot from here?

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

Over the past two days one of our two Sharepoint 2010 WFE's has had an issue were the W3wp.exe process is crashing. Right now we have a traffic going to the other WFE for now. The sharepoint page on the problem server comes up but missing the Teams drop down and all calender list come up with page cannot be display and causes the w2wp.exe process to crash. Both servers have were recently patched with the 4/2017 MS Security patches and have the same patches for OS and Sharepoint installed.

I am not the greatest in Sharepoint and have tried the following without luck
1) SFC /scanow now
2) REplacing the ntdl.dll fille from the know working server to the one that is crashing
3) Compared web.config file can copies the once from the working server to new one, rebooted and still no luck.

Judging from the error code in the w3wp it is poiting to heap corruption but not sure how to fix it.
I have an issue where an organization has users in the "Users" local group and their SharePoint site will not allow docs to open unless IE is ran as an Administrator. Does anyone know how to get around this? I need the user to be able to open SharePoint documents in IE without being prompt for Admin creds everytime.
I'm migrating SharePoint sites from 2010 on premises to SharePoint Online in the cloud once a site is migrated.

After migrating each site, I'd like to have a powershell script that compares all "Lists" and "Libraries" counts and identify the delta's and either dump these into a file or email the results.

For example:  
On-prem:  http://collaboration/sites/SITEA

Is this possible to do through Powershell?
