RSS View Web Part won't show Sharepoint RSS feeds.

  Asked By: Beth    Date: Jan 10    Category: MOSS    Views: 3347

I'm playing with the RSS View web part and can get it to show external
RSS feeds just fine.

However, when I try to link to an RSS fee from within the portal, I get
this error on the web part:

An unexpected error occured processing your request. Check the logs for
details and correct the problem.

And if I check the logs, I find this error:

07/18/2007 16:27:03.08 w3wp.exe (0x053C)
0x1264 SharePoint Portal Server WebParts

Unexpected Exception in RssAggregatorWebPart::OnPreRender...
System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not
present in the dictionary. at
System.ThrowHelper.ThrowKeyNotFoundException() at
System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key) at
(EventArgs e)

Can anyone translate that for me?

Are you using NTLM or Kerberos authentication? The RSS Reader web  part can't
read authenticated feeds. Unless your sharepoint  environment allows
anonymous access, that includes the RSS reader. I'm told that if you use
Kerberos authentication it will act as if it doesn't need authentication
since the kerberos token hides it.

It's bollocks and it's putting a real crimp in my general intranet plan,

if folks want to use RSS between sites, their site needs to be
read-accessible by all? That's probably not a huge deal for us.

I'm getting the feeling that there was a team meeting at Microsoft where
the project lead said "Alright, everyone on the internet is talking
about wikis and RSS and blogs and stuff. I suppose we should add this to
Sharepoint. We can do one of these features the right way, or we can do
them all in a half-assed way. Which is it?"

This is a pretty well known change that occured  with 2007. I believe this
was done for security purposes so that just anyone could not access list
information via an RSS feed without being authenticated. As someone
mentioned already using Kerberos authentication seems to be the way to
resolve the issue you are seeing.
