I am receiving a warning “All Personal Sites will be loaded” while loading the farm.

Problem:

While trying to load our SharePoint farm with SPDocKit I received:

All Personal Sites will be loaded.

Solution:

Supported SharePoint versions: SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013

Your account or user that was running the SPDocKit does not have the proper privileges to load the User Profile Service Application properties. For that reason, SPDocKit is not able to differentiate which sites are personal, so all of them are loaded. Depending on the SharePoint farm size, this can significantly increase the farm loading time.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Open the SharePoint Central Administration of your farm.
  2. Navigate to Application Management > Manage Service Applications.
  3. Select your app from the list of Service Applications and click Permissions on the ribbon.User Profile Service Application - Permissions
  1. Choose the desired user from the popup dialog box and make sure it has Full control permission checked.
