On SharePoint

New version of the CAML Designer Released!

Andy Van Steenbergen and I finally released a new version of the CAML Designer; and this is a version we are very proud of!

This version of the CAML Designer now works on SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2016 and SarePoint Online; AND it supports multi-factor authentication for SharePoint Online!


As you can see we changed the way you can connect to SharePoint: there are only 2 ways to connect:

  • through the client-side object model (CSOM) for SharePoint versions 2010, 2013, 2016 and O365
  • through the web services to be able to connect to SharePoint 2007

Yes, you read it correctly! The CAML Designer now works on ALL versions of SharePoint (except for SharePoint 2001)! We didn’t test the connection to SharePoint 2003, but I bet it will also work.

Another cool and much desired functionality we added to the CAML Designer, is the possibility to connect to SharePoint Online through multi-factor authentication.

The snippets are still generated for:

  • raw CAML
  • Server object model
  • CSOM
  • REST
  • Web Services
  • PowerShell

You can download the tool from the BIWUG site. There you will find a link to download the application.

A detailed explanation on how to use the tool can be found here.

Have fun with it and please, don’t hesitate to give us your feedback at camlfeedback@biwug.be !!
