This website has been configured to disallow editing with SharePoint Designer

Issue Description : When i tried to open a site in sharepoint designer , it throws a below error.

Error message : "This website has been configured to disallow editing with SharePoint Designer"


1.Go to Central administration
2.Application Management à Manage WebApplication 
3.Select the web application having issue.
4.In the Ribbon, Click on General Setting à Sharepoint Designer Settings 
5.Check "Enable Sharepoint Designer" .

That's It . Now i am able to open the Site in designer.


  1. This also shows if you try to edit a sharepoint 2010 site using Designer 2007 - I would also think you'd get the same using designer 2010 on a 2013 site

  2. Devops is not a Tool.Devops Is a Practice, Methodology, Culture or process used in an Organization or Company for fast collaboration, integration and communication between Development and Operational Teams. In order to increase, automate the speed of productivity and delivery with reliability.
