Access the InfoPath Form Services Options

Scenario/Problem:You need to access the InfoPath Form Services options in Central Administration.

Solution:Launch Central Administration on one of the farm servers and select General Application Settings.

On one of the servers in your SharePoint farm, launch SharePoint 2010 Central Administration. A link is provided from the Start menu under All Programs, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products.

In Central Administration, click the General Application Settings link from the quick launch on the left side. The InfoPath Form Services options are located on that page, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1. The InfoPath Form Services options allow you to modify the settings of your SharePoint farm.

Browser-Enable Form Templates

Scenario/Problem:You need to allow custom SharePoint forms to be rendered within SharePoint.

Solution:Ensure the browser-enabled settings are selected under Configure InfoPath Form Services.

From Central Administration, General Application Settings, click the Configure InfoPath Form Services link under the InfoPath Form Services section. Make sure the first two check boxes are checked at the top of the page, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2. Checking the browser-enabled options allows SharePoint forms to be published and rendered on your farm.

The first selection allows browser-enabled forms to be published to SharePoint, and the second selection allows those forms to be rendered through the web browser.

Throttle Data Connection Timeouts

Scenario/Problem:You need to increase or decrease the data connection timeout limit.

Solution:Enter the default and maximum timeout values within Configure InfoPath Form Services.

Your form will attempt to connect and access data sources based on your configured data connections. If the data source is not accessible, busy, or down, InfoPath Forms Services needs a way to time out the connection such that the form or the browser doesn’t stop responding.

From Central Administration, General Application Settings, click the Configure InfoPath Form Services link under the InfoPath Form Services section. Under the Data Connection Timeouts section, increase or decrease the values, as shown in Figure 3.

Figure 3. The data connection timeout values you set determine how long InfoPath waits for data activity.


The default values are usually acceptable entries and do not need to be modified. However, if you have some long-running data processes or connectivity issues, you might want to increase these numbers slightly.
