MOSS UserProfile Update

  Asked By: Parvesh    Date: May 20    Category: MOSS    Views: 953

I developed a webpart to update the custom user profile property.

When I running the code, I am getting exception

Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: Updates are currently disallowed on
GET requests. To allow updates on a GET, set the 'AllowUnsafeUpdates'
property on SPWeb

How to resolve the problem?

In the SPWeb object you need to set  the AllowUnsafeUpdates property
to true. For example:
web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

Do I need to run the webpart  with elevated permissions when I am doing
profile update  using webpart. In one article I read that webpart should
run with elevated permissions.

Furthermore on top of that though, aren't you opening a security door if
you're automatically processing without tokens for validation?
