Issue with Bamboo Calendar Plus Web Part redirecting close item to SharePoint List and not Bamboo Webpart Page

Issue: On a SharePoint farm: When clicking on an event in a Bamboo Calendar Plus Webpart page, then clicking close on the even. User is redirected to the actual calendar and not the page with the Bamboo Calendar Plus WebPart on it. On a different SharePoint farm: When clicking on an event in a Bamboo Calendar Plus Webpart page, then clicking close on the even. User is redirected to the page with the Bamboo Calendar Plus WebPart on it. Expected behavior is to be taken back to the page with Bamboo Calendar Plus WebPart page on it.   Identification: Opened Notepad and reviewed the URL of the Bamboo Calendar Plus Web Part page. Original Web Part URL: http://myspsite/sites/testpage/SitePages/bambootest.aspx Item URL on non-working Site: http://myspsite/sites/testpage/Lists/BambooTest3/DispForm.aspx?ID=1&Source=http%3A%2F%2FIMASHAREPOINTSERVER%2Fsites%2Ftestpage%2FSitePages%2Fbambootest%2Easpx%3FCalendarDate%3D11%2F9%2F2016%26CalendarView%3DMonthView%26wpGuid%3Dg%5F671100a8%5F2026%5F4665%5F94ea%5F02b7b0809521&ContentTypeId=0x0100F10BEFEE614D1A4F901921532063D964&RootFolder=%2A   Item URL on working site: https://wellbehaving.happydomain.com/projects/LOOKATME/IMPORTANT/Lists/Calendar/DispForm.aspx?ID=911&Source=https%3A%2F%2Fwellbehaving%2Ehappydomain%2Ecom%2Fprojects%2FLOOKATME%2FIMPORTANT%2FSitePages%2FEvent%20Calendar%2Easpx%3FCalendarDate%3D4%2F1%2F2016%26CalendarView%3DMonthView%26wpGuid%3Dg%5Fa0df6487%5F0c69%5F4ff3%5F8ff1%5Fcbedae910f75&ContentTypeId=0x01020078724FAFD8AA094094F61C7DC273E72F&RootFolder=%2A Cause: When you look at the &Source=  URL of the working vs non-working, you see the source on the working farm points to the same web application name as the webpart URL, while on the non-working the source name is different. In my case the server name.  This is caused by an incorrect configuration with the AAM for the Web Application on the farm. Resolution: I checked Central Administration -> System Settings -> Configure alternative access mappings. Changed the Alternative Access Mapping Collection to my problematic web application. Then I see multiple AAM’s all set at the Default...

This Site Hasn’t Been Shared With You – (But It Has?!)

This is probably a rare scenario, but it helps to check “everything”, when dealing with Permissions issues in SharePoint. I got a ticket where a user was added into a custom SharePoint User Group, and that group had Edit access to the entire site. But everything the user went to the site they were getting the error “This Site hasn’t Been Shared With You”. First thing to check are making sure that the user’s account that has been added is really the right account. I know plenty of places where a user may have a normal account and then an admin account, or maybe they have an account in another domain and they are logged in with that other account. After verifying that the user’s “correct” user account was listed in the SharePoint group with the correct access. I checked the Site Permissions From here I could see that some items had unique permissions. Clicking Show these items I saw that the site pages library may contain some unique permissions. Of course when I checked the permissions for the site pages library it was inheriting from the top, but alas, one more alert. Upon checking the items. I saw that 1 page in the library has custom permissions. (The Default Page nonetheless ) The custom SharePoint Group that the user was in, didn’t have any permissions the that page. That explained...
