Introduction

We  get the current user’s manager and put the value into a Person or Group column in a list. This one only works in SharePoint Server 2010 & SharePoint Foundation .because the UserProfileService Web Service is only available there. The code is relatively straightforward: a call to SPServices to get the results from  GetUserProfileByName and then a little more code to poke it into the appropriate Person or Group column. In this case, the Person or Group column is called ‘Manager’

Code  Steps

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../JSLibrary/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../JSLibrary/jquery.SPServices-0.4.8.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

    $(document).ready(function () {

        var managerName;

        var userName = $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser();

        $().SPServices({

            operation: "GetUserProfileByName",

            async: false,

            AccountName: userName,

            completefunc: function (xData, Status) {

                managerName = $(xData.responseXML).text();

                var managerLength = managerName.length;

                var indexofManager = managerName.indexOf("Manager");

                managerName = managerName.substring(indexofManager + 13, managerLength);

                var indexOffalse = managerName.indexOf("false");

                managerName = managerName.substring(0, indexOffalse);

            }

        });

        var peoplepicker = $("tr:contains('Reporting Manager'):last").find("div[title='People Picker']");

        peoplepicker.html(managerName);

    });</script>

 
The available values from GetUserProfileByName in sharepoint 2010 environment are:

  • UserProfile_GUID
