Any advice on setting up a SharePoint data source connector in Incorta is welcome

Hello Incorta Community,

Does anyone have any advice or guidelines in setting up a SharePoint data source connector to Incorta? For example, what service account user credentials are needed? Read only good enough? Would you recommend "Basic authentication" or "O-Auth authentication"? What is typically used for Login URL? Like do you pick a top level url directory, and it would allow access to sub-levels? Or is it limited to picking a specific location only? I would ask more specific questions, however, I'm new to setting up a connector as such and just need some basic, general guidance on best approach. Thank you in advance!

Hey Jono!

When working with the Incorta Sharepoint native connector, you will see that there are two types of connections. 

  1. On-Premises - Screenshot Attached - Basic Authentication
  2. Sharepoint Online - Screenshot Attached - O Authentication

The access typically needed for most customers depending on their security protocols, read access should suffice. The data that can come through will be from a SharePoint list only. If you have access to the sub level lists, then yes you can. 

Let us know if you need more!

Thanks!

Thank you, Joe. That's very helpful. I am not choosing to 'accept as solution' just yet in case anyone else has some additional advice. I will proceed with the information you provided and if I get it up and running, I will revisit and select as 'Accept as Solution.' 

Hey Joe,

Do you or someone else know if spaces cause issues in the Basic authentication (SharePoint On-premises) login url? For example, we have something like this below where spaces are replace with %20 and seem to be having issues connecting:

https://blahcenter.blah.com/dept/ITI/ITSupport/DCD/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('CDP%20Manual%20Test%20...')/items

getting a "failed to connect [name of data source] due to [null] with properties [[authenticationType, basic]....." type of error.
