Dataflow document

Sep 6, 2015 at 9:20 PM
Hello,
I have been assigned the task of creating a dataflow of your application by our information assurance team and while looking through your documentation I don't see anything that explains how the system interacts with SQL or SharePoint or what ports or traffic is sent. Do you have this or can I speak to someone who could help me obtain this information. Thank you.

It is a traditional SharePoint server application, and as is normal for such, communicates only locally with SharePoint, and not at all with SQL Server directly.

Thus, there are no off-server ports or protocols to document.

(I guess that you have not programmed SharePoint using the traditional API?)

You are 100% correct PerrySharePoint, I am new to SharePoint administration and not a programer. I was given a list of applications to write ConOps for which have to include data workflows to include ports and such, looking through it seems pretty straight forward. I wanted to make sure I talked to someone with a bit more experiance under their belts before I finished up the paperwork. Thank you for your help, I appreciate it.

No problem. Best of luck with that effort.
