Demand Fire Alram System-I.xls has been deleted by (unknown)

  Asked By: Robin    Date: Mar 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1133

This file is uploaded and deleted by same profile, but when deleted the username is not shown? Except shown “unknown”?

Is this some security feature or a bug?

The actual identity of the person deleting the file  is hidden to protect the guilty.

Seriously, it’s a design side effect. The alerts fire  after the file is actually gone thus there’s no way to tell who performed the operation. Something we live with.

Refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/890930/. There is a hot fix that addresses this, as well as a number of other issues.

And don’t quote me on this part, because I haven’t had a chance to install it, but apparently, SP2 will also fix it.

SP2 does fix it. Here is an example of it working.

Go to My Alerts to edit, delete, or view your alerts.

Document library events fire  asynchronously after the action has
occurred. For every event but Delete, the list item that was the genesis
of the event is available to retrieve pertinent data about the event.
However, the Delete event removes the list item so when the event
handler processes the event, the list item is already gone and it
doesn't have any other way to obtain information about what was deleted.
I think Microsoft understands that we need to know who not only deletes
a document but also whenever anyone even reads a document. I anticipate
improvements in this area in v3. Windows Workflow Foundation (WWF)
should also help.
