public int AddLongTermDelegationRule( DateTime fromTheBeginningOf, DateTime untilTheEndOf, string delegateFrom, string delegateTo, bool currentSiteOnly )
Required. The date at which the delegation rule begins, in ISO 8601 format.
If a time is specified as part of the value, the time portion of the value is ignored. The delegation rule starts on 12:01 AM, in the time zone for the locale of the current SharePoint site. This value must be equal to or earlier than the value specified in untilTheEndOf; otherwise an error occurs.
Required. The date at which the delegation rule ends, in ISO 8601 format.
If a time is specified as part of the value, the time portion of the value is ignored. The delegation rule ends on 12:00 AM, in the time zone of the locale for the current SharePoint site. This value must be equal to or later than the value specified in fromTheBeginningOf; otherwise, an error occurs.
Optional. The user from which the delegation rule delegates workflow tasks. If a value is not specified, the current user is used.
Optional. The user to which the delegation rule delegates workflow tasks.
Note: Although the parameter is optional, an error occurs if a value is not specified.
Required. The scope of the delegation rule. If set to true, the delegation rule applies only to the current SharePoint site; otherwise, the delegation rule applies to the entire SharePoint farm.
The identifier of the delegation rule.
If the Allow long term task delegations global setting is set to No, an error occurs.
The current user is determined by the credentials of the user context specified when this method is invoked. If the credentials of the current user context cannot be determined, an error occurs. If the current user is not the user specified in delegateFrom, an error occurs if the following requirements are not met:
The current user has site administrator permissions.
Specifically, the current user must have the following base permissions for the current SharePoint site: AddAndCustomizePages, BrowseDirectories, ManagePermissions, ManageWeb, Open, and ViewPages. For more information about SharePoint base permissions, see SPBasePermissions enumeration on Microsoft Developer Network.
The Allow site administrators to set long term delegation for other users global setting is set to Yes.
The identifier returned by this method can be used as the value of the id parameter for the DeleteLongTermDelegationRule method.
The following example demonstrates how to use this operation to add a delegation rule.
The following SOAP request attempts to define a delegation rule that, from 12:01 AM on February 2, 2015 to 12:00 AM on February 6, 2015, all tasks on the current SharePoint site for the user named testdomain\testuser are delegated to the user named testdomain\differentuser.
