Building and Running the Custom Document ID Provider Sample

Test this project on your development or test site.

Building the Sample

This custom ID provider generates IDs in the form ItemName-ItemGuid@Web. The IDs are unique identifiers, and they provide information about the item such as its name and the Web in which it resides.

To deploy this sample:

  1. Open the solution in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

  2. Build the solution.

  3. Add the resulting DLL to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).

  4. Run the Windows PowerShell script, replacing http://MyServer with the URL of the site to which you want to deploy the document IDs.

Windows PowerShell Script:

$site = Get-SPSite http://MyServer
$assembly = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("CustomDocIdProvider")
$type = $assembly.GetType("Microsoft.SDK.MOSS.Samples.CustomDocumentIDProvider");
[Microsoft.Office.DocumentManagement.DocumentId]::SetProvider($site, $type);

Running the Sample

Running the sample resolves a document ID to its corresponding URLs by searching on the specified site for a target document.
