Ways to display data from a list in a different site collection

  Asked By: Dora    Date: Apr 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 17133

on my sharepoint site, I want to display data that lives in a list
in a different site collection. The first thing that comes to mind, is
to view it using the RSS Viewer, as a feed.

What are some other ways to do this? Looking for a brainstorm here.

That approach will normally work when going to another site  in the same site
collection, but not a site in a different site collection. When you go between
site collections you are crossing a security boundary. That normally presents
this from working.

Another option is the FlexListViewer web part. See

It works across different site  collections in the same web application.
I am not sure about different web applications in the same farm, but
definitely does not work across farms.

It has some issues, for example it doesn't support grouped views and
some column types.
