Installation Instructions

Automated
It is recommended you use the DeployJefs.ps1 powershell script to install Jefs in your SharePoint environment. The script takes care of managing all the dependencies, which is especially important when upgrading from a previous version.
To run the script, download the wsp and the ps1 file from CodePlex and save the files in the same directory. If you download the files using your browser you will need to Unlock the files before running the command. Right click on each file and click Unlock at the bottom. Then run the following command:



-webAbsUrl (required) Absolute url of the web where you want Jefs installed
-wspPath (optional) Relative path to the Jefs.wsp file. This parameter is optional if you place the wsp file in the same directory as the script.

If you installed Jefs previously, the script will find the root level JEFS list and will ask you to confirm whether you want to delete it. Backup any content you may wish to save, then press Y to continue. At that point the list will be deleted, the solution will be deployed and the features will be activated.

Manual
If you don't have access to the powershell console on the SharePoint box and want to install Jefs using your browser, follow the steps below for the installation:
  1. Navigate to the root web of the site collection where you want Jefs installed
  2. Go to All Site Content and check if JEFS list exists. If it does, backup any content you wish to save and Delete the list.
  3. Go to Site Settings - Manage Site Features and Deactivate the Javascript Editor for SharePoint (JEFS) feature
  4. Go to Site Settings - Site Collection Settings - Solutions and upload the latest version of Jefs.wsp to the Solution Store
  5. Go to the web where you want to make Jefs available, then go to Site Settings - Manage Site Features and Activate Javascript Editor for SharePoint (JEFS)
